A is for Arctic

This is a collaborative installation at Boston Children's Museum featuring collections objects from Arctic cultures and an environment created with Sarah May and Sara Sargent.  Our window installation is one of 24 recently completed alphabetically themed designs that bring collections objects to light with the enhancement of original artwork.

The goals of our Arctic window are to create a 3-tiered environment that connects a whimsical Aurora Borealis sky to a lively underwater scene with a glacial landscape.

We utilized many plastic bottles and other up-cycled materials to encourage and inspire discussions of creative recycling amongst family members.

Sarah Sargent specialized in the Art Education aspect of our design, helping us get into the perspective of a child.
