Night at the Museum: Art and Science Come to Life at PHX Sky Harbor
March 20, 2023
PHOENIX – The Phoenix Airport Museum hosts its first ever Night at the Museum event at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on Friday, March 24, from 4-7 pm at the Terminal 4, level 3 gallery.
The event celebrates the Museum’s current Artist and Researcher exhibition presenting art inspired by science. The exhibition was developed by the Phoenix Bioscience Core where nine local artists were paired with researchers to create artwork based on their different areas of study. Working side-by-side in the lab, classroom and art studio, the resulting works are visual representations of the scientific progress happening in our city and state.
Come by to see what happens when the talents of both science and art join forces to communicate complex information in an approachable way through artworks.
Meet the researchers and artists involved in the program and learn about their collaboration. View artworks influenced by scientific investigation that explore concepts of communication, memory, emotion and circulation. Participate in an augmented reality experience that allows viewers to walk through sections of the brain.
Museum staff will be on hand with a fun art activity, treats and scavenger hunt guides to explore more art at the Airport. Whether you are traveling or not, this event is FREE to attend and open to the public. Learn more about this exhibition by visiting our website.
