Illusion At Discovery Place And Engaging Young Adults In The Cultural Sector

9:00 a.m. Friday, February 13, 2015

Perception is often our reality but the trouble is, your perception could be wrong. A new Discovery Place exhibit makes that crystal clear. Nothing is as it seems in Illusion, which uses optical, audio and other tricks to fool your eye and your senses. We hear more about how they accomplish that in the first part of the program and then we find out about how some cultural institutions- including Discovery Place- are engaging young professionals.

Events
Illusion’s coordinating Science on the Rocks at Discovery Place: Smoke & Mirrors is Friday February 20, 5-9 PM.

The next Rush Hour Recital for Bechtler Young Visionaries and Pulse members is March 18, 6 PM.
