    CREATE SOLAR BUTTERFLIES DURING
    KINETIC ART EVENT IN BOYNTON BEACH
    Alexandre Dang, a French solar kinetic artist who currently lives and works in Brussels, Belgium, will conduct a series of FREE, creative workshops for children and their parents during the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium, February 7-8, 2015, in Boynton Beach. During the one hour workshops, which will be held both days at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., at the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center in downtown Boynton Beach, Dang will lead participants in constructing dancing solar butterflies that they will attach to solar mechanisms and place in the museum’s courtyard. The goal of the workshops are to teach those who take part about solar energy and how they can conserve it. To preregister for the workshops, which include instruction and a Certificate of Completion signed by Alexandre Dang, emailsuzanne@schoolhousemuseum.org. For those who don’t preregister, but still wish to make a dancing solar butterfly, they may do so with the guidance of museum staff anytime during the event weekend.

    Alexandre Dang comes from a scientific background. Convinced of the need to raise awareness of the potential of environmental friendly technologies (eco-technologies) and sustainable development, he developed his artistic creation often incorporating solar energy as source into his kinetic art works. Though the sun provides 10,000 times more energy to the earth than humans need, more than 1.7 billion people still do not have access to electricity. The pressing need to address this issue is the driving force of Dang’s artistic commitment, where he combines scientific approach, environmental concern and humanism.

    Dang will also conduct workshops at Galaxy E3 (Engineering, Energy, Environment) Elementary School in Boynton Beach on Friday, February 6, 2014 Students there will also create dancing solar butterflies that will be added to the exhibit at the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center. Both the school and the museum are excited to bring this valuable workshop to their facilities as it aligns with their S.T.E.A.M., Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math programming.
