Sponsor(s): Chemical Heritage Foundation

Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry, an exhibition in the Hach Gallery at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, features seven contemporary artists whose artwork responds to the elements, the seminal building blocks of all matter.

These artists are, like chemists, passionate about the elements. In their art, the elements are used as symbol, material, or energy to transform ordinary associations about chemistry into something genuinely surprising and evocative.

Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry opens in February 2011. It closes on December 9, 2011.


Topic: art, celebrating chemistry Audience: general public, professional chemists, students, educators
