In 2019 we are excited to be collaborating on several projects. Special thanks to all our partners!

BIO STEAM LAB/ Taos Land Trust

This year we have formed a partnership with the Taos Land Trust to create an innovative STEAM + environmental education program for youth called the BIO STEAM LAB.  The goal is to raise awareness to local and global environmental issues which are part of the Rio Fernando Park mission. We will engage Taos County youth in artist-led interdisciplinary and intercultural collaborations that integrate art, science, technology and community. The mission is to beautify and promote the park with site-specific permanent and semi-permanent installations that engage and educate the community on the preservation work happening at the park, instill value for protecting our environment, and increase visitation to the park as a place to feel wonder, respect and inspiration for nature.

Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande/ 516 Arts

516 ARTS is a nonprofit, contemporary art museum in the center of Downtown Albuquerque that celebrates thought-provoking art in the here and now.  This year STEMarts Lab founder, Agnes Chavez, has been invited to participate as an artist in the exhibit entitled, Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande. The installation will include an educational component delivered through the STEMarts Curriculum Tool platform. In addition, the Taos Land Trust BIO STEAM LAB will be participating as ‘partners along the Rio Grande river’, with an installation and community event at Rio Fernando Park.

STEMarts@PASEO Youth Program/Paseo Project

We are entering year six of designing the STEAM youth program for The PASEO festival. This year we are excited to be bringing a Paseo artist into 11 participating middle and high schools in Taos County for an exciting line up. Coupled with the STEMarts Curriculum Tool , students get a behind the scenes demo and hands on STEAM activities to deepen and personalize their understanding of sci-art and participatory installations.

COMING SOON!

Fluidic Data: Particle physics + big data through water and light

Agnes Chavez has been collaborating with a team of scientists and engineers on Fluidic Data, a permanent installation at the CERN Data Center in Geneva, Switzerland. The final installation is to be unveiled to the public at CERN Open Days on September 14,15, 2019.  In conjunction with the installation the artist will be creating STEAM educational components through the STEMarts Curriculum Tool for teachers and students to learn about the particle physics behind the work. The artist will also be available for presentations at conferences, festivals and schools to share her sci-art work and process. Contact us for more information.
