Not A Box Display

IMG_0400As part of the participatory culture of the Barrow Media Center, we like to feature student art exhibits.  We haven’t had as many this year due to our temporary space while our school is rebuilt.  However, today one of my favorite displays returned.  Ms. Foretich, our fabulous art teacher, setup the PreK Not a Box display.  Students read the book Not a Box by Antoinette Portis and designed their own artistic creations out of boxes.  This book always inspires creativity.  One of the things I love about this display is how each design is accompanied by a digital photograph of the creation that is labeled so that visitors can understand what each box represents.   In the future I could see this project evolving to include some QR codes to make the exhibit more interactive.  There’s always something new and innovative that we could include.  Time always creates some limitations on what we can do.  If you happen to be near the Barrow Media Center, please stop by and take a look.  If not, then take a look at the gallery below and feel free to leave comments for Ms. Foretich and her students.
