Bioluminescence: A Jackson Hole High School Student-Curated Exhibit

About the 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!


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

What People Are Saying

Although I am not a big fan of Western art, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. The sculpture was stunning, and the views from the museum were beautiful. I learned so much about American artists, and the history of the difficulty in having wildlife paintings accepted by artists' organizations was fascinating. A lovely visit.
