First Friday: Elemental Matters Opening Celebration

Feb 04, 2011
315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Join the Chemical Heritage Foundation for the opening celebration of Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry and meet the artists whose works are featured in the exhibit.

Elemental Matters features seven contemporary artists whose artwork uses the elements as symbol, material, or energy to transform ordinary associations about chemistry into something genuinely surprising and evocative.

All seven artists will be on hand for the opening and available for informal conversations about their work. 

CHF's permanent exhibit, Making Modernity, will also be open for viewing.

CHF joins over 40 Old City museums, galleries, and shops in opening its doors from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. for First Friday. Learn more about First Fridays in Philadelphia's Old City Arts District.

Elemental Matters is generously supported by Kathryn Hach-Darrow.
