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

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.

Available to Grades: Pre-K, K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th

Program Type: Guided Explorations, Guided Tours   Subject: Art

Radial Symmetry

Students are introduced to traditions in art exemplifying radial design. Memorable hands-on activities reinforce mathematical concepts and encourage students to visualize and predict reflective patterns. For the culminating project, each student builds a kaleidoscope to take back to school.

Available to Grades: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Art, Math, Science as Inquiry
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone
