Nettrice Gaskins, Ph.D., STEAM Director, Boston Arts Academy, will join Brides of Anansi artists Saya Woolfalk and Xenobia Bailey in conversation to look at how contemporary women artists look at nature and natural systems for inspiration. Topics such as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) and biomimicry–a bridge between biology and design–will be explored. STEAM is an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning that is gaining momentum in the United States and around the world. This session rethinks the cultural and artistic dimensions of these areas in conjunction with the exhibition Brides of Anansi: Fiber and Contemporary Art.

Brides of Anansi: Fiber and Contemporary Art was made possible by the generosity of
