STEAM calls for adding art and design to the national STEM agenda to develop a comprehensive educational model that will better prepare future generations to compete in the 21st century innovation economy. Featured artists include LCCC faculty and staff members Katie Dobeck, Nancy Halbrooks, Kevin Jackson, Gregory Little, Joan Perch, Catherine Rosmarynowicz and Mike Zellers. LCCC’s Unity Lab, Dennis Ryan’s Graphic Design 3 students, and artist/student and Fab Lab assistant Ryan Corrigan are also featured. Regional artists featured include Ann Bort, Carolyn Ballou, James Peake and Arabella Proffer.
All of the artists featured in this exhibit not only create their own art; they also use their artistic skills to teach in some capacity. Whether they are working in the fine arts, digital art or integrating fab lab technologies in their art, they are moving Full STEAM Ahead in an exploration of STEM subjects or technologies in their personal art and with their students.
Through interaction with the work in this exhibit and by getting to know the work of these artists and their students, we hope to encourage meaningful dialogue between arts and STEM practitioners, College divisions and various fields of study, and the campus community. We also hope to spark conversations about this growing intersection of the arts and science, technology, engineering and math with the larger community as LCCC launches the expanded campus maker space and P. C. Campana Center for Idea and Ideation.
