SPARK 6: Imaging The Peale’s Biomes
November 5, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: The Peale
Join artist Stephen Bradley for Imaging the Peale’s Biomes, as part of the exhibition SPARK 6: Refractions. Participants will explore the environment through BioBuggy, a mobile art and science laboratory on wheels designed and envisioned by media artist Stephen Bradley and scientist Eric Schott. In this presentation, Bradley and collaborators will present an art and science workshop exploring BioBuggy tools that will observe, collect, and identify, various critters and organisms that live inside The Peale, outside in the garden, and around the building. Some questions the workshop will address include: What is biodiversity? Does species diversity follow any patterns? Can learning about the critters that live in our midst strengthen our relationship with our environment?
Spark 6: Refractions features the work of UMBC and Towson University faculty, recent graduates, and current students in the historic galleries of The Peale in Baltimore City. The exhibition, sponsored by PNC Bank, opens on October 26 and continues through November 26.
Admission is free.
