UnEarth Our Story
Is that an 8 ft tall NOSE in our Rotunda?! You'll have to come on up and see (smell) for yourself. In fact, there are strange new UnEarthed exhibit pieces all throughout the Center: let loose and holler in the Scream Booth, guess what might just have appeared on the Transporter Pad, and learn about real and science fictional space vessels on the Graphic Bridge to Somewhere. It's time to dig into the unknown!
What role does imagination play in science?
This is an age old question that has been discussed, debated, and celebrated throughout the world. At Chabot, we pride ourselves on facilitating thoughtful discussions, sharing relevant information, and inspiring our community to explore. In that vein, Chabot is thrilled to welcome the work of local artists Ryon Gesink and Orion Fredericks. Their individual pieces have been shown throughout the United States. Their sculptures, Fata Morgana, by Fredericks and Oscillation II, by Gesink will be on display at the museum for 6 months.
