Exhibition showcases our amazing planet
The 2nd International Children’s Art and Science Exhibition is underway at the Shanghai Art Collection Museum through November 10.
Under the theme of “Hey! My Amazing Planet,” the exhibition features nearly 200 works fusing art and science created by children from 10 countries, including China, Turkey, Japan, France and Russia.
The works vary from pictures, handmade installations, pottery to Ebru painting. Particularly popular in Turkey and Central Asia, Ebru paintings are produced using dyes, a water-based solution and a set of unique tools.
The exhibition is divided into four sections: “Fantastic Sky,” “Vast Land,” “Boundless Ocean” and “Star Imagination.”
Questions — such as why the sky is blue, how does thunder form and where can we meet rainbows — are answered in the section “Fantastic Sky.”
Children’s fascination with the sky is seen in the exhibits of a seven-hued pinwheel, a self-made airplane model and a small hot air balloon.
Other exhibits include using sound activated lighting and a solar powered Chinese Dragon model. There will also be indoor and outdoor events.
Date: Through November 10 (closed on Mondays), 9am-4pm
