WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT ART.SCIENCE.GALLERY.

Maia Weinstock with her Women of NASA Lego Idea.

“Congratulations to Art.Science.Gallery for five wonderful years! At a time when arts budgets are being slashed, A.S.G. is needed more than ever to help convey the beauty and wonder of science in a way that takes visitors out of their usual thinking caps and places them into the nanoworld, or ferrys them to the depths of outer space. When I curated “Go Ahead and Do It,” featuring portraits of women in the sciences, in 2014, it was incredibly powerful to see young women and men being moved by the stories of the unsung pioneers represented on the gallery walls.

Custom scientist minifigs by Maia Weinstock, part from our 2016 #SaveArtScienceGallery campaign

This is the power of art, and another reason why I’m looking forward to the next five years at A.S.G.” – Maia Weinstock (@20tauri), science communicator at MIT, creator of women-in-STEM minifigs, and guest curator of our 2014 Go Ahead & Do It: Portraits of Women in STEM exhibition at Art.Science.Gallery..

 


Rovena Tey (Toronto, ON)

“There is no other place like it that celebrates the fusion of art and science! The Art.Science.Gallery has been a big part of my journey as a creative scientist and I’m honoured to have my work represented at the Gallery Gift Shop. High Five for a fantastic five years and looking forward to sharing the next five with you!” –Rovena Tey (@thechemisttree), creator of The Chemist Tree greeting card company and represented in the gallery’s gift shop since 2013

“Now, more than ever, it is critical that those in the sciences share their work with the public. Communication and collaboration are key for inspiring the action necessary to preserve the diverse life on this planet. Everyone can make a difference! Thank you Art.Science.Gallery. for being a platform for us to connect with, and empower one another. Each time I visit the gallery and its work, I learn more about myself and the world around me. Congratulations on five impactful years and best wishes for those yet to come.” – Emily Blair Bryant, sustainable artist and jeweler at etsy.com/shop/thescoffpatch and Sustainability Manager at the Philadelphia Zoo, exhibited at the gallery’s very first exhibition in 2012, our 2013 Eclosion exhibit about insects, and The Mother Art exhibit on animal architecture in 2015.
