Included as a part of the exhibit “Go Ahead and Do It: Portraits of Women in Science” was artist Maia Weinstock’s celebration of women who are responsible for revolutionary advancements within their respective STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. Weinstock created LEGO figurines of the scientists along with a tile that relates to their subject. The collection of LEGO art pays tribute to these women and the legacy that they have left on the STEM world.
Maia Weinstock had also been responsible for curating the exhibit, which was based on her own Scientific American photo essay “15 Works of Art Depicting Women In Science.”
Her work, as well as the exhibit as a whole shows a visual story and representation of women who rose above obstacles to go on and become pioneers in physics, biology, chemistry, and more.
