OSC Partners with Rollins College for New STEAM Exhibition

By OSC on September 27, 2017 in Fusion: A STEAM Gallery, What's New


You know how much Orlando Science Center focuses on STEM, but what about STEAM?

STEM is the integration of science, technology, engineering and math to solve 21st-century problems. But many forward-thinking innovators have recognized the inclusion of the Arts, forming the new acronym STEAM.

At Orlando Science Center, we have adopted a STEAM-focused mindset in some of our workshops, camps, exhibits and other offerings. We also have a permanent gallery where guests can view fine art inspired by, or created with, science.

Orlando Science Center is hosting a new exhibition this fall in partnership with the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College. The Science Center’s gallery, FUSION: A STEAM Gallery will host Steady Observation: The Intersection of Scientific Inquiry, Art, and Life, from Sept. 29 through Jan. 7, 2018.

The artists whose work is featured in this new exhibition form deep connections with the environment and natural world. In the process of creating their art, they have observed, gathered data, asked questions and developed hypotheses – just like the scientific method requires.

Steady Observation is organized in conjunction with Time as Landscape: Inquiries of Art and Science, on view at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum from September 29 through December 31, 2017.
