Peabody Essex Museum:
Designed by Nature Drop-In Art Making
April 6 @ 11:00am - 3:00pm

161 Essex Street, Salem, MA 01970

Get inspiration from the Lily Impeller found in our special exhibition “Wild Designs”, which features works by artists and other creatives who are looking to nature and living systems for new ideas and creative solutions to human problems. Notice the many possibilities of the spiral while creating both a 3D origami pinecone sculpture and a veggie print. Consider where else in nature you might see spirals.

 

By utilizing the Fibonacci Sequence, a mathematical pattern that leads to spiral shapes in nature, the Lily Impeller moves fluids more quietly and efficiently than other fluid movers. At only 8 inches tall, the Lily Impeller can mix millions of gallons of water using minimal energy, equivalent to three 100-watt light bulbs! Notice the many possibilities of the spiral while creating both a 3D origami pinecone sculpture and a veggie print. Consider where else in nature you might see spirals. 

Free with Museum Admission
