The Art of Science Opening Reception
Saturday, April 25, 8:00-10:00PM
Chabot Space & Science Center, 10000 Skyline Boulevard, Oakland
included with museum admission

Join us as we change the landscape of Chabot with two new unearthly, visionary sculptures by local artists Ryon Gesink and Orion Fredericks. We’ll explore the interplay between art and science with local artists, dance to the eclectic sounds of musician Michael Chiaravelotti, and hear what inspired Ryon and Orion to make their fantastical creations. Beer and wine on sale.

What role does imagination play in science? This is an age old question that has been discussed, debated, and celebrated throughout the world. At Chabot, we pride ourselves on facilitating thoughtful discussions, sharing relevant information, and inspiring our community to explore. In that vein, Chabot is thrilled to welcome the work of local artists Ryon Gesink and Orion Fredericks. Their individual pieces have been shown throughout the United States. Their sculptures, Fata Morgana, by Fredericks and Oscillation II, by Gesink will be on display at the museum for 6 months.
