Join us at a unique new museum in Chicago’s Loop for an inspiring evening exploring science as artworks and as storytelling through film. The National Museum of Health + Medicine Chicago is designed to promote knowledge of health and medicine and to encourage scientific research and innovation enhancing access to scientific data through large-scale digitization projects.  (Image above: Rex Twedt, Augmented Reality App of Hand.)

Experience an art exhibit featuring award-winning images from the National Science Foundation and Northwestern University scientific images contests. Enjoy refreshments as you roam a gallery of high-definition monitors displaying beautiful images with interesting scientific backstories.

6:30 – 8:30pm
We will screen two films (full-length 90 min. and 18 min short) from the Chicago-based 137 Films, documentary filmmakers who specialize in promoting science through storytelling on film. A Q&A with Clayton Brown and Monica Ross, Directors & Producers, will follow the screenings.

“The Believers” – 25 years ago they said they could save the world with cold fusion. Some people still believe them.  Watch the trailer here.

“This Has Been to Space” – When 25 kids launch a weather balloon to the edge of space, expect the unexpected.  Watch the trailer here.
