Fusion: A STEAM Gallery

Gallery – Level 3

Today’s innovators recognize the critical role of art-related disciplines in solving 21st-century problems.

Fusion: A STEAM Gallery shows that art and design aren’t removed from science – they are essential complements.

You’ll find permanent pieces in the Fusion collection that highlight this relationship, including an interactive, visual theremin by Ginger Leigh; a one-dimensional dungeon-crawler game by Robin Baumgarten; a motorized color projection piece by Ryan Buyssens; and a multi-layered tribute to victims and survivors of the Pulse tragedy by Christy McCutchen.

Traveling exhibitions are featured throughout the year with an emphasis on local artists.

Love and Loss Across Species Lines: The Neuroscience of Attachment

Human beings have the remarkable capacity to form enduring psychological bonds not only with other people but also with members of other species. Our attachments to animals give rise to joyful connections, lasting friendships, and tearful partings. In this exhibit, a series of text panels summarizes scientific studies of people and animals, while art works depict the complexities and nuances of our bonds with other sentient creatures.
