Phantoms of Asia:Contemporary Awakens the Past

This is a provocative interplay of 150 artwork from past and present, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, site-specific creations, and more by artists from all over Asia. Pause and reflect on your own place in the universe while taking in some amazing art.'

Energyville @ The Science Factory, Eugene, OR!!

Explore alternative energy sources with Energyville, a locomotive hands-on exhibit... or should we say feet-on? Energyville visitors will be tasked with pedaling a bicycle to generate the energy necessary to propel a model train, which travels through a detailed landscape created by the Willamette Cascade Model Railroad Club. The train stops at stations representing alternative energy sources such as hydroelectric, solar and wind power, while an accompanying video provides information about each energy source. This exhibit was made possible by a grant from the Eugene Water & Electric Board.
