Curious Vault Collaborations 002
On Tuesday, July 14, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science will host “Curious Vault Collaborations 002,” exploring the past, present and future of flight. The special evening will include the debut of the Museum’s latest Curious Vault Collaboration, Insight Flight, by sculptor Robert Chambers and Dr. GeCheng Zha, University of Miami professor and director the Aerodynamics and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Lab.

The Curious Vault Collaborations project partners a local artist and scientist together to create a tabletop display using at least one item from the Museum’s collection. It will be the last Curious Vault Collaborations to take place at the current Museum location before the move to its new downtown Miami location, opening in in 2016.

Guests will enjoy free books from Spaceleggers, courtesy of Bookleggers, a community mobile library offering free books to the public with a special selection of science and science fiction books; a performance in the Museum’s historic Planetarium by DJ Le Spam of City of Progress Studio and Lance Vertok, under dome projections by Science Art Cinema, which mixes 20th century science and science-fiction films with performances and multimedia performances; and an exclusive auction of Miami Cityscapes created by ten local artists including Edouard Duval Carrie, Agustina Woodgate, Cesar Santos, Emmett Moore, Felice Grodin, Jenny Brillhart, Leyden Casanova Rodriguez, Maritza Molina, Monica of TM Sisters and Pablo Cano. The auction will also include limited-edition items by Bookleggers and City of Progress.

The event will also include a moderated discussion on the merging of art and science, along with an inside look at the project making of Insight Flight, featuring Bookleggers founder and writer Nathaniel Sandler; Kevin Arrow, art & collection manager for the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science; sculptor Robert Chambers; and Daniel Espinal, who will be representing Dr. Zha during the evening.

Throughout the night, attendees will enjoy burgers courtesy of Shake Shack and Gramps will serve complimentary cocktails provided by Tito’s Vodka in the Museum’s Space Gallery, while having a chance to experience the art firsthand. The New Tropic is Curious Vault 002’s official media sponsor.

Tickets available for $15 at www.CuriousVault002.eventbrite.com. Museum members are free with code PPFMOSM.
