Modeling the Art and Engineering of Roman Aqueducts with Legos
Works by Gary Robbins

To provide water to crowded cities throughout the ancient Roman world, the Romans built some 600 aqueducts. Not only were the aqueducts marvels of engineering and hydraulics but also wondrous works of architecture and art. The original Lego ™ models on display are not just for artistic enjoyment but serve as teaching tools used in Dr. Robbins’ UConn Geology classes, exemplifying the diversity in design of the ancient Roman aqueducts.

Average Joe Photo Show

A combination photography exhibition and philanthropic project, this exhibit celebrates the average person’s perspective through a common medium: the camera app on a mobile device. Pairing a necessity of life – water – the human figure, the exhibition features 234 photographs taken in 2013 by photographs (both professional and amateur) from Connecticut and beyond. A portion of the proceeds benefit water.org, an organization providing access to safe water and sanitation to people worldwide.
