Next Science Pub Explores Science of Art

The Asheville Museum of Science and The Collider announce their next co-hosted installment of the Science Pub, a free monthly series that continues June 23.

Charles Floyd, former Art Director at National Geographic, will present “At The Interface”.

“Science isn’t just for nerds. It’s the foundation of our culture, and our democracy,” says Charles. His presentation will detail the role art & design play in bridging the gap between science and public understanding. As an illustrator, designer, educator, and former art director at National Geographic, Charles has spent his career striving to translate complex information into cogent, readable and understandable visuals designed to engage, educate, and inform.

The program takes place at The Collider in downtown Asheville, on the top floor of the Wells Fargo building at 1 Haywood Street. You can enjoy light bites provided by Ingles, and for those at least 21, beer from Asheville Brewers Alliance. Doors open at 5:30pm, and the program starts at 6:30. That’ll give you plenty of time to grab refreshments, watch the sun set over Asheville, and settle in for an exciting night of science.

This is the fourth year AMOS has collaborated with local scientists and breweries to present the Science Pub series free to the public. Prior Science Pub topics have included gravitational waves, the science of brewing beer, dog behavior, neuroscience of bias, the value of WNC’s food systems, and Neanderthals.

The Collider, an innovation center for climate solutions has partnered with the museum to co-host the 2017 Science Pub series. The two nonprofit organizations are located in the same building; AMOS on the ground floor at 43 Patton Ave., and The Collider on the top floor, overlooking Pritchard Park.

Former TV weatherguy who never got it right, til the day I predicted mostly cloudy skies with a 100% chance of unemployment. I've survived stints as a morning radio host, stay-at-home dad, and lab assistant. All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
