amazing high school student

I just stumbled on this article in Wired Magazine about a 16 year old student in Ontario, Canada, who has found a way to make plastic degrade in as little as three months- for a science fair project! Check it out here.

Sustainability is on everyone’s minds, and that’s a good thing. This fall the ASU Art Museum will be featuring a full semester of art and sustainability projects, from traditional, historic art pieces to creating a Canalscape feature in our front entryway and even a ceramics clay project that will take over our Ceramics Reseach Center.

You can see all of our project information on our Defining Sustainability season on our website,, or linked here.

Are you on Twitter yet?

Come join us today at 4pm at ASU Art Museum to meet all the great Twitterati in and around ASU! We’re also going to have some fun with resident artist Paulo Nenflidio this afternoon too.

Free parking at the Ceramics Research Center in marked spaces (NE Corner Mill Ave & 10th Street, one light south of University). There’s also metered parking in front of the museum itself. Or walk south on Mill Ave from the light rail stop at Mill & 3rd in Tempe.

And for those of you thinking strategically, there are plenty of restaurants (read=happy hour) along Mill Ave. for after the event, too!

Oh, and you can find me on Twitter most days. I’m Diane. @asuartmuseum.

Since more of us from around the ASU community are now using Twitter, I thought it’s time to try to get everyone to meet in person! Of course, you don’t have to be with ASU to attend – everyone is invited!

The details:  Tuesday, March 10 at ASU Art Museum; 4:00 pm

FREE parking: on the NE corner of Mill Ave at 10th Street (one light south of University). Park in the spaces outside of the Ceramics Research Center marked for museum visitors. Please sign your car in at the security desk when you get inside.

The museum is on the SE corner of Mill and 10th- just come down the stairs when you get here!
The fun part:  besides getting to meet lots of very cool people, visiting artist Paulo Nenflidio is working in one of the galleries on a collaborative project. That means that everyone can work on his art projects with him. Paulo is from Brazil and is known for his sculptures made from found and recycled objects that all create sound.

There is never any fee to come to ASU Art Museum or to work with our artists. For Paulo: if you have any noise-making things you’re planning on getting rid of anyway, like old radios, toys, etc., please feel free to bring them to donate to the project. This is not a requirement, but it is a unique way to recycle!

And this is me:

There are two places on the East Coast I love to look back at: the Brooklyn Museum and Mattress Factory. They both do really innovative projects, showcase amazing talent and are so smart about using technology. Sure you could look them up online, but you’ve got to see this first, at Mattress Factory (thanks, Jeffrey!)

Culture 24

Found through Twitter links: the UK’s own Culture 24 website. I thought this was pretty cool – a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts through the limitless power of the Internet.  Culture 24 (formerly 24 Hour Museum) exsists to promote the cultural sector online and works across the arts, heritage, education, and tourism sectors.

At ASU Art Museum, we totally appreciate and support the idea of promoting the arts across disciplines; for us, that means also including students from as diverse areas as dance and engineering, among others. It’s what we strive for as part of the New American University model at Arizona State University.

And also, it’s really difficult to organize and manage the massive amount of content something like this entails, so bravo, guys, on the new website that’s easy to navigate get info from! We’re currently undergoing our own site redesign and know first hand what a feat this is!  Look for the new in the next few weeks!
