Making Space Workshop on Space, SciArt, and Society in Tucson, AZ
TREX supported the first Making Space Workshop on Space, SciArt, and Society organized by PSI’s Jamie Molaro on April 15-17, 2022. Twenty-five people gathered in Tucson to interpret scientific themes, data, and images and transform them into art at the Catalyst Arts & Maker Space at the Tucson Mall.
The event included talks by experts on recent discoveries in planetary science, discussion of how and why humans explore space, and art-making activities that explore how similar science and art truly are. Artists, educators, and scientists from across the country used a wide variety of materials, including paint, collages, clay, and even poetry and video to create science-related art.
