The Museum of Arts and Sciences received a grant through the Smithsonian Affiliates program called Youth Capture the Colorful Cosmos, which is designed to introduce students to observing space through the MicroObservatory Robotic Telescopic Network at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
Students can control the telescopes by requesting that specific photographs of bodies in space be taken. Then, using their own photographs or those requested by others, they can manipulate the images with the MicroObservatory Image software to create artwork. The end product of the grant project is this exhibit showcasing the artwork created by students.
The Museum of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce that we are featuring works by Macon native Charles Ladson and several rising stars from regional Master of Fine Arts programs in a special exhibition entitled, Charles Ladson and 6 Emerging Artists. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum from April 12 through August 25, 2013.
The contemporary paintings of Ladson explore a wide spectrum of subjects, ranging from figures to landscapes — and always offer a starting point for individual interpretation and interesting conversation. Beasts and interiors coalesce forming curious situations and conveying stories open to interpretation.
melodies that begin each new day

Wild Music: Sounds & Songs of Life — a remarkable exhibition that celebrates every note of every player in the symphony of life — is on display at the Museum of Arts and Sciences from February 1 through September 8, 2013.

The Protégé Juried Student Competition and Exhibition, which featured works by high school students from Central Georgia, celebrated its tenth year as it returned to the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Working with local school systems, students entered work in the Competition, which was judged by an expert artist. Their work was celebrated with an Exhibition in one of the Museum’s galleries and recognized with a Reception and Awards Presentation.
Students submitted works that covered a broad range of media, including drawings, paintings, collage, photos and sculpture, and this year a new element was added to the Competition. Students were asked to interpret a literary work or character in a two- or three-dimensional piece of artwork. They also had to prepare a written presentation of their project, which was shared in part as part of the Exhibition.
The Human Gyroscope in the Museum’s lobby is just one of the many new interactive exhibits the Museum of Arts and Sciences acquired recently from the former Fort Discovery National Science Center in Augusta. Recently purchased from the National Science Foundation, the Human Gyroscope is a fun and exhilarating immersive experience that gives riders a sense of weightlessness.
