Janelle Iglesias- Public Art for Public Schools (PAPS) Partnership

So excited about the newly installed sculpture CONSTELLATION FOR A CONUNDRUM, 2014 by artist Janelle Iglesias. A a ceiling mounted sculpture created for the P.S. 51 atrium, a 2-story alcove leading to the school’s playground. The sculpture is a three-dimensional rendering of two different solution strategies to the classic “9 dots puzzle.” Nine objects are suspended from the ceiling representing the nine dots. The aluminum pipe forms a constellation configured to match the solutions to the puzzle. Here, the phrase ‘thinking outside the box’ is most apparent, as it is a restatement of the solution strategy. There are also student made mobile’s hanging on the fourth floor created by Janelle and our second third and fourth grade classes from last year. We are so happy to have had the partnership with Public Art for Public Schools (PAPS).
