Interdisciplinary Artist and Educator
Agnes Chavez is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Taos, New Mexico. She collaborates with artists, scientists and youth to create sensorial experiences that explore our relationship with art, science, technology and nature as a process and tool for personal, social and environmental change. Her work focuses on data visualization, light, sound and space. She is a founding member of The PASEO Festival, an outdoor participatory art festival in Taos New Mexico whose mission is to transform community through art and art through community. In 2009 she founded the STEMarts LAB a Research and Innovation project that applies the latest arts, science and technological innovations to youth programming through interdisciplinary artist-led collaborations. As a curriculum developer she has created the STEMarts Curriculum Tool an online hybrid platform that complements real world interdisciplinary science and art exhibits and events with STEAM activities and resources built around the work of the artist. She is the founder of SUBE, a multisensory language curriculum for teaching Spanish and English to kids through art, music and games now in its 24th year.
