As we come to the end of 2019 we are grateful for the opportunity we had to bring these projects to our community.  Special thanks to all our partners!

BIO STEAM LAB/ Taos Land Trust

This year we 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 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, was invited to participate as an artist in the exhibit entitled, Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande.  In addition, the BioSTEAM Lab@Taos Land Trust  participated as ‘partners along the Rio Grande river’, with our first BioSTEAM artist, Ana MacArthur, and the Pollinator Concentrator installation and community event at Rio Fernando Park.

STEMarts@PASEO Youth Program/Paseo Project

This was our sixth year of designing the STEAM youth program for The PASEO festival. In 2019 we brought PASEO artists into 9 participating middle and high schools in Taos County for an exciting line up. Coupled with The PASEO 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.

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

Agnes Chavez has been collaborating with a team of scientists and engineers since 2016 on Fluidic Data, a permanent installation at the CERN Data Center in Geneva, Switzerland.  Fluidic Data is a water and light installation that visualizes data and particle traces detected from the Large Hadron Collider. The final installation was unveiled to the public for CERN Open Days 2019.  The artist is available for presentations at conferences, festivals and schools to share the sci-art work and process behind this exciting collaboration..
