This expansive exhibition, curated by Brooklyn artist Benjamin Wright, features over 20 contemporary artists whose work is inspired by science. The artwork on display will allow visitors to explore the role of creativity endemic to both science and art, while showcasing glass as a medium that provides a challenge to their perceived divide.  At every turn, glass materially magnifies, distorts and illuminates our transdisciplinary world of wonder.
