In keeping with the spirit of the NCRC, we aim to generate an environment of innovation and inspiration through the display of art and through arts programming. Scientists and artists share a common ability – abstract thinking. Developing a dialog between the two is our main objective.
The intention of the art program is to introduce visual and performing arts in the form of educational experiences that are dynamic and thought provoking for the members of the NCRC community, as well as the larger U-M community and general public. Students and visitors will be invited to participate in programs that reach beyond the realm of art, with topics that include science, social commentary and technology. Fresh ideas, or living arts, will be highlighted through interactive programs offered by visiting artists who share their process creating works on-site, as well as through talks and exhibition.
The ideas and works of art by U-M students and faculty, as well as Michigan-based and internationally known artists will be featured.
If you would like to stay informed of future exhibitions and events, please send an email to Grace Serra, NCRC Art Coordinator - firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "NCRC Art e-mail list."

As described by Jim Pallas, “ Tattered Moon is a metaphor for the process of bringing a dream to life. Sometimes a dream can become tattered. As it is, it is brought to reality. Even when tattered, a...
