“We look forward to this display every year,” said Karen Jean Smith, gallery coordinator, in a press release. “It’s fun to see the enthusiasm expressed by the students in their work and also when they come to see the show. On a more serious note, it is the mission of Baltimore Woods Nature Center to connect communities and nature in wisdom and wonder. By studying flora, fauna, landscapes, or other aspects of nature to create works of art, these fundamental connections can be made. It is only fitting that we celebrate the students, their achievements, and the school art programs.”

Sciencenter Updates Exhibit

An exhibit at Ithaca’s Sciencenter has received a few updates.

In April, the museum unveiled a new mural in the Family Learning
Area. Created by Rachel Feirman, a local artist, it showcases bees,
plants, and flowers. The Sciencenter said it also added a reading nook, a
sensory table, and puppets.

“We are thrilled to integrate feedback from visitors to ensure the
space is engaging and comfortable for families,” said Annie Gordon,
education program manager, in a press release. “With new tools and
activities complementing the mural, children will have even more
opportunities to learn and explore.”
