Our Vision

When Art Meets Science.

 

Science Loves Art (SLA) is an online and pop-up exhibition events organization created to bring science and art together. SLA supports both physical and virtual connections through workshops and exhibitions in our Laramie studio. We aim to serve as a catalyst for collaboration between artists and scientists, ages 5-85!

 Science Loves Art has brought scientists and artists together for several years and in 2019 became an official nonprofit organization. 

 Science Loves Art and René Williams Art is currently on the outreach team of a new Epscor Wyoming / National Science Foundation grant studying microbes primarily in Wyoming soils.  This 5 year project has inspired all of our SLA Kits and also the artwork in fused glass by René.

 Our current focus is the creation and distribution of over 700 SLA Kits for individuals or groups. These kits are portable versions of our studio workshops inspired by microbes found in soil.  The only requirement is access to a delivery service.   The kits will be dispersed beginning the fall of 2019.  We are recruiting volunteers for kit assembly, community connections and art/science ideas.  Contact Ivy at artondemand@sciencelovesart.org to get involved.  We have a place for everyone!

 Keep up with us on Facebook  and Instagram as we create more collaborations and explore the world through discovery.

See our supporters page and donate if this is a way you would like to help this mission.
