Inspired by the habitat restoration project underway at nearby Tyler State Park, Planting Seeds features 14 artists and scientists from our own backyard and across the nation who work to increase awareness of pollinators in our environment, the threats to their habitat loss, and the consequences of diminished populations.
The interactive exhibit is based on STEAM (STEM + Art) principles – that Art & Design can drive innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and that interdisciplinary approaches are necessary to solve our most pressing environmental problems. Planting Seeds is appropriate for all ages and features a wide range of methods and media – such as infographics and data visualizations, botanical illustration, micro-photography, and video.
Artmobile will tour Planting Seeds: The Art & Science of Pollination from September 2017 through June 2019. Requests are now being accepted for the 2018-19 tour of Planting Seeds. Click on Planning a Visit for information on how to have Artmobile come to your school or public site.
