The MMoA One World Project is an annual program with the New London public school to enrich the curriculum with the study of art of cultures from around the world. With the guidance of MMoA artist educators, students in the KTJ Studios create artwork on a theme that reflects diverse social and environmental realities and traditions. The project culminates in an exhibition showcasing the artwork and highlighting the research and creative expression of the students. The goal of this project is to engage students in finding creative new pathways to community with individuals from other cultures. MMoA educators deploy the power of art to foster fascination, build problem-solving skills, and most of all to encourage young learners to identify as global citizens, with an inclusive and equitable world view.
The 2024 theme of the One World Project is architecture. Art educators presented a series of iconic buildings from around the world and how each one reflects a society’s culture, environment, and history. Each student then selected one building to study in detail, through plans and elevations, drawing, and discussion of architectural styles. They then experimented with different materials and techniques to create a 3D model of their building for exhibition in the MMoA Davis gallery.
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 27, 2024 from 1 – 3pm
