As museum educators, we are often in the position to navigate artwork with complex and controversial meanings with our audiences. In this quick video, artist Dread Scott discusses his installation, “What is the Proper Way to Display the U.S. Flag?” and its ripple effects locally and nationally. How might you have approached this installation as an educator?

Watch:

In this quick talk, visual artist Dread Scott tells the story of one of his most transgressive art installations, which drew national attention for its controversial use of the American flag and led to a landmark First Amendment case in the US Supreme Court.

S.T.E.A.M. art museum educators, have you seen the latest mathematical pattern news? The next time you’re writing a lesson plan about patterns, perhaps related to artists like Agnes Martin, Kehinde Wiley, or M.C. Escher, you might dip into the recent discovery of the first “einstein.” This 13-sided polykite can cover an entire surface with no gaps, but only with a pattern that never repeats.

After half a century, mathematicians succeed in finding an ‘einstein,’ a shape that forms a tiled pattern that never repeats.
