The Museum of Arts and Sciences is pleased to present The Weather is Turning Weird: Data Visualizations by Nathalie Miebach.
This exhibition is on display now through January 4, 2015 and features the work of nationally recognized artist Nathalie Miebach. Miebach focuses on the intersection of art and science and the visual articulation of scientific observations. Ten of her woven sculptures, made of colorful reeds, rope, wood, and beads currently on display at the Museum of Arts and Sciences represent mammoth storms. Using the methodologies of both disciplines, she translates scientific data related to astronomy, ecology, and meteorology into colorful, intricate, tactile woven sculptures. Because weaving provides an effective grid through which she interprets data in three-dimensional space, her work lets us consider data from new perspectives.

With great fanfare during the “Grand Reopening” celebrations, the Museum of Arts and Sciences relaunched its distinctive Discovery House, the interactive museum for children, which offers new excitement for Kids of All Ages!
The area was closed for almost three months while new exhibits were being installed and existing stations updated.
Visitors are greeted at the entrance by Ziggy, the Museum’s 40 million-year-old whale fossil, and the “Gesturing Woman” by Viola Frey, scholar and artist known for her larger-than-life, colorfully glazed clay sculptures.
