Meet Susan Heideman

Boston artist Susan Heideman and her colleague Michelle Lougee both offer a very creative view of natural forms –organisms, plants, minerals and micro to macro.

On August 28, 2018 the two artists appeared on Science for the Public’s Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations. They described their individual artistic approaches to Nature’s variety, which were on display at that time at the Maud Morgan Arts Chandler Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Heideman and Lougee discussed some similarities in the way that artists and scientists look at Nature. Both artists are motivated by concern for the environment and the structural beauty of natural forms.
