Salvage Station - March 31st
The Asheville Arts & Science Festival is a unique new way for people to experience art and science in our community.
This festival is organized by a volunteer group of local scientists, artists, parents, and professionals.
On March 31 st , 2018, The Salvage Station in Asheville, NC will host the first ever Asheville Arts & Science Festival (AASF) featuring a wide variety of student and citizen participation. This year’s festival includes participation from the University of North Carolina Asheville, Woodson Branch Nature School, The Asheville Astronomy Club, Edens Pest Control, Penrose Environmental, Mountain Valley’s Resource Conservation & Development, Wildscapes, Zaniac Learning, Pierce Edens, UCNA X-Tet, Jackie Rubino, and more. Virtual reality, microscopes, telescopes, insects, dirt, arts and crafts, visual art, and great music are some of things featured so far and more interest is being generated daily. In the future we hope to continue to bring this type of programming to many different communities. These activities should supplement and enrich our education as well as encourage members of the community to pursue creative solutions to the challenges of our modern world.
“The Asheville Arts & Science Festival is an opportunity for citizens of all ages to interact with artists and scientists in our community. This festival is designed to showcase the connections between art and science as well as demystify the day to day practice of these disciplines.”
