      EVENT DETAILS
      San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art Talking Art: Art + Science Social Hour

      Talk Art + Science, taste different Kombucha flavors and Kombucha beer, get a glow-in-the-dark selfie, and hang out with friends!

      Join us for an afternoon of drop in activities for all ages, kombucha beer tasting, and conversations with artists and scientists that will interest the left and right-brained alike! Art + Science Social Hour will celebrate the ways in which the worlds of science and art intertwine.

      Two of the ICA’s winter exhibitions explore the confluence of art and science: an immersive installation inspired by marine microbiology in Tracey Adams and Virginia Folkestad’s Primordial Soup and sculptural representations of neural networks in Lorrie Fredette’s installation tender exchanges.
