Now on display in Fusion: A STEAM Gallery is The Art of Everything! Explore the fascinating realm where art and science meet in this exciting three-part gallery. See for yourself that the bond between science and art can be found anywhere, at any time, all around us.

The moment when STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) becomes STEAM (with the addition of art) is one to be celebrated. Creativity and innovation is important in any career, not simply art. This gallery seeks to open your eyes to the possibilities all around us, even those you may not expect!

 

The Art of Collaboration

steam-the-art-of-collaborationYoung visitors turned artists are the masterminds behind the first part of the exhibit The Art of Collaboration. Guests of our daily KidsTown programming learn critical thinking and collaboration skills, which are necessary for scientific endeavors, through art and play. Discover how our young artists went about integrating creativity with problem solving, and see what your child could be creating during KidsTown activities!

 

The Art of Nature

steam-the-art-of-natureNot all of our artists were human! Animals from our NatureWorks exhibit took part in the second section of this exhibit. One-of-a-kind pieces were created by dabbing our animal artists in a water-based paint and then placing them on a canvas where they walked, slithered, or crawled. Not only did this activity create beautiful artwork, but it also provided a new enrichment experience for our animals. Can you tell who made each mark? Find out if you’re up to the challenge in The Art of Nature.

 

The Art of Experimentation 

steam-the-art-of-experimentationDid you know experiments could be art? Orlando Science Center decided to join in on the fun! We turned some of our favorite demonstrations into breathtaking art with a little out-of-the-box thinking.  We mixed acrylic paint into explosive chemical reactions, utilized gravity in our favor, and harnessed the power of the sun in the final section of the gallery, The Art of Experimentation. Will you see your favorite experiment from Dr. Dare’s Lab, Science Live Shows, or demo carts on display?

Best of all, admission to The Art of Everything gallery is included with general admission! For more information about how you and your family can visit Orlando Science Center, please visit: http://www.osc.org/about/hours-prices-more/

The Art of Everything will be on display through Sunday, January 8, 2017. We hope you can come see it soon!
