Bioluminescence: A Jackson Hole High School Student-Curated Exhibit

February 1, 2020 - March 8, 2020

This exhibition celebrates student artists in the local community and provides a powerful experience for them to work together and present their art in a professional setting. To create the exhibition, a small group of student curators conceive of a theme to present to their peers who create artwork based on that theme. This program promotes a student-centered learning agenda and offers local high school artists personal responsibility in generating a high-quality, engaging product for Museum visitors of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy. The 2020 theme is Bioluminescence, and it features many glowing creatures!


ESTUDIANTE DE JACKSON HOLE HIGH SCHOOL EXHIBICIÓN:

En palabras de los estudiantes Brooklyn McCooey, Leilani Johnson, Ally Smith y Sarahi Roldon-Vazquez:

La bioluminiscencia ocurre en muchos organismos raramente vistos en todo el mundo, incluido el 76 % de los animales oceánicos y 80 % especies de hongos. Los animales bioluminiscentes viven en todos los ecosistemas, incluido el pez víbora del Pacífico, que acecha a 13,000 pies debajo de la superficie del océano y las luciérnagas que habitan en un campo de verano. ¿Qué los hace brillar? Estos fascinantes organismos contienen químicos brillantes o bacterias que lo hacen brillar. Esta exposición está dedicada a iluminar la belleza de la bioluminiscencia. ¡Ayúdenos a celebrar este fenómeno natural
