The First Thursday event is on March 2, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with artist Alicia LaChance. This free event is taking placing at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science in downtown Evansville, Indiana.  This event open to the public for an opportunity to meet Alicia LaChance and converse with her about her artwork and inspirations.  There will be appetizers and a cash bar. 

Alicia LaChance’s work will be on display from March 2 to May 3, 2017.

Alicia LaChance creates paintings that reminisce of modern medallions of them she writes:

“My paintings are a personal declaration aimed at ameliorating our modernity. When I paint, I compose visual anthropological essays that bridge past and present for a contemporary acculturation. The colors and symbols I use are adopted from many stations, ranging from folk traditions to street art. Further manipulation re-contextualizes them as both graphic ornament and Esperanto. Initially, these paintings were organized according to open-source graphs describing patterns of social human interaction. They have become a way for me to filter the urgency and collective scramble of contemporary life.”

Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.” – Carl Sagan, (1934-1996) American astronomer, astrophysicist, and author.

In 2017, the Museum will combine two of our long-standing annual events-Astronomy Day and Chemistry Day-into a one day celebration of all things science. On Saturday, April 29, Museum staff and volunteers from the Evansville Astronomical Society, the University of Southern Indiana and University of Evansville will present Sciencepalooza, an event designed to give visitors an opportunity to have a personal, hands-on science experience through observation and experimentation.

The event will include two family-friendly science lectures, chemistry demonstrations, storytelling activities, ten experiment stations where visitors will see science in action, solar observing through a telescope and a special movie presentation of A Total Solar Eclipse: An Introduction into a Journey of Totality in the Koch Immersive Theater.

General admission is $12 for Adults, $8 Youth. Museum Members free. Presented in partnership with Michelle and Phillip Eykamp.
