On Monday, Feb. 26, at noon in the Fermilab Art Gallery, Fermilab artist-in-residence Jim Jenkins will give an informal gallery talk. The exhibit is on display until March 6. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with our latest artist-in-residence and to get a sense of how he understands science at Fermilab. With only a few weeks left before Jenkins’s exhibit concludes, it’s good to take advantage of his final talk: Learn how Fermilab science looks through an artist’s eyes.

Dark Matters

This work, "Dark Matters," is a concept/sculpture by Jim Jenkins, 2017 Fermilab artist-in-residence. The center of the sculpture is a lead-glass block from the electromagnetic calorimeter of Fermilab experiment E-760/E-835 (charmonium spectroscopy). This picture was taken after a performance of "Quatuor pour la Fin du Temps" by Olivier Messiaen in Ramsey Auditorium. The sculpture was positioned behind the performers on the auditorium stage.
