Clark Planetarium partners with UMFA for art and science

Talia Butler

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is hosting Art & Science Artful Afternoons this March with activities and learning opportunities for the whole family.  They will explore air, fire, water and Earth through art-making and scientific experiments focusing on a different theme each week. 

PrintClark Planetarium will provide science programming on Saturday, March 5 from 1 -4 p.m. Guests will participate in experiments and activities that center around air and air pressure.  You will learn what causes air pressure, how it affects the weather and how strong air pressure is. Our education staff will also show you a ton of cool hands-on experiments and an activity you can try at home.  Other activities will include designing your own kite and meeting local meteorologist Ralph Patterson.

The UMFA is located on the University of Utah campus in the Marcia and John Price Museum Building at 410 Campus Center Drive.  All artful activity afternoon activities are free to the public.  For more information on this event or other events in this series, please visit the UMFA website.
