Gita is a visual artist and educator whose mission is to create public art that celebrates diversity and the essential forces of nature.
Gita will work with kids to create a Rainbow Spinner, a solar-powered sculpture that celebrates light and the formation of rainbows and colors. Using aluminum and copper foil, each visitor will create a distinct piece of art that represents their own unique superpower. This artwork will be added the spinner, which will be installed in the museum's Tip Top Terrace in summer or fall. The spinner will rotate on sunny days through solar energy. On cloudy days, visitors can pedal a stationary bike to power the sculpture.
