Has there ever been a more iconic duo than science and art? Science Friday is coming to Boston to celebrate the best things happening at the intersection of the two subjects with local artists, scientists, and experts of all kinds.

The Create Curiosity Fair is a great way to explore art-influenced science and science-influenced art projects. Plus, you can get a chance to create something for yourselves! Comic book artists, science communicators, immersive artmakers, and research scientists will be showing the interactive pieces they’ve made and will be giving hands-on demonstrations throughout the evening. We’ll also screen two new Science Friday videos featuring the sciarts happening right here in Boston.

  • Boston Children’s Museum
  • CitySprouts
  • Community Boat Building
  • Harvard Museum of Natural History
  • New England Aquarium
  • SciArts Comics, with Rosemary Mosco and Maris Wicks
