'The Science of Art' at The Crucible

"The Science of Art" Spring Open House at the Crucible

The Science of Art, an event to highlight the scientific principals, enquiry and exploration behind the fine and industrial arts processes taught and practiced here at the Crucible! The event will bring together Crucible faculty, guest artists, a curated gallery of exhibits and demonstrations, projects from local schools as well as special performances, food, and the participation of a number of other local art and science related organizations and university programs.
