MOAH to Host Arts and Science Discussion Featuring Expert Guest Speakers This Sunday
In conjunction with MOAH’s current exhibit, Dark Progressivism: The Built Environment, the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) will host Arts, Science and the Built Environment: A Conversation, a panel that will merge together the thoughts, theories and processes of artists and scientists alike. Lisa Derrick, the curator for Dark Progressivism: The Built Environment, will be moderating this conversation between exhibiting artists and members of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Los Angeles – Las Vegas chapter (AIAA LA-LV) in a first-of-its-kind, community museum event. The talk will be held at MOAH on Sunday, December 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.
Art and science are more closely related than many realize. Art often leads the charge towards science by conceptualizing new worlds, theories, and perspectives – while science and technology inspire innovative methods for creating art by opening new doors to the imagination. The panel will explore the creative processes utilized by both artists and scientists; the impact and effect of technology on art; art’s impact on scientific thought; and how both art and science shape our future on this planet, and potentially beyond.
Guest speakers will include aerospace scientist Dr. Nahum Melamed, author and space expert Rod Pyle, NASA/JPL certified educator Andrea Diamond, and Dark Progressivism artists Jason Hernandez, Fishe, and Doctor Eye. The afternoon will also include a DJ set from Curt Barlage, which will feature sounds from the Voyager spacecraft and space themes from popular music.
