Fall/Winter Exhibition - Lin Emery: A Force of Nature Guided Exploration

Lin Emery (b. 1928) is an internationally recognized sculptor based in New Orleans. Inspired by the lyrical beauty she finds in nature, Emery produces sculpture that is constantly in motion, a type of art called kinetic art. Powered by water, wind, or magnetic forces, her elegant abstract forms fashioned from welded aluminum reflect light as they sway and dance and sometimes make music. Students will discuss the various forces of nature from gravity to water and wind, learn about the history of kinetic art, and experience the work of one of Louisiana’s most preeminent sculptors. Exhibition organized by Louisiana Art & Science Museum.

Layered Experience: Pairs well with Beetles, Bugs, and Butterflies (Class), Weatherwise (Interactive Educational Theater), and Secrets of Gravity: In the Footseteps of Albert Einstein (Planetarium Show). 

Available to Grades: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th
