PS 245K: Creators

Featuring Art Direction by Peach Tao (2019)
  • 0

The “Creators” mural at PS 245 in Flatbush explores the creative convergence of artists and scientists over time with the help of a time machine. It is one of two mural projects funded by NYC Council Member Matthieu Eugene in spring 2019. As a school, PS 245 has embraced a STEAM educational focus (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math), so we leveraged a grant from the Cultural Immigrants Initiative to explore the creativity of scientists, artists, and innovators from around the globe. Some highlights:

  • Madam Marie Curie discovering Radium
  • A flying machine according to Da Vinci’s sketchbook
  • Mona Lisa portrayed in a child-like style
  • Neil Degrasse Tyson
  • Benjamin Franklin collaborating with a Mayan artist
  • The Wright’s brothers’ first flyer
  • The first computer
  • Kathrine Coleman Goble Johnson, the African-American woman NASA mathematician
  • Einstein collaborating with Frida Khalo
  • Stephen Hawking and so much more

PS 245K: Creators (2019)

As always, the project was conceived, designed, and executed by students with an assist from our teaching artist Peach Tao.
