The Art of Cell Structure and Function

Exhibition #1 2014-2015

6th Grade Project work at  MCCPS Exhibition #1 2014-2015.  This installation was informed by our visit to the Calder Exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum and consists of abstract images of cell organelles. The writing below each image describes the structure of the organelle and how its function contributes to the cellular system.  Visitors to Exhibition remarked on the kinetic nature of the installation and its accessibility to them as viewers.  They were also impressed by the integration of Art and Science and the students’ discussions of how artists use Science to understand, interpret and create their art. The hanging rectangular prisms are recycled pizza boxes from a recent School Pizza Lunch.
