Opening Reception with remarks by Adam Nadel, Friday May 31 from 5-7pm.

Scientific exploration is fascinating, as are the scientists and places where discoveries are made. As Fermilab’s 2018 Artist-in-Residence, I have endeavored to bring this remarkable world of particle physics to the general public by artistically documenting the lab’s personnel, scientific architecture, and the creative practices.

During my time at Fermilab I worked with cameras, historical documents, scientific data, and a particle accelerator.  In doing so I have ventured to celebrate one of humanity’s most extraordinary and important endeavors.

Born in 1967, Adam Nadel works at the intersections of art, journalism, science, and human rights.
