From the Illinois Science Council, Aug. 9, 2021: Fermilab’s first artist-in-residence, Lindsay Olson, describes her first days working at Fermilab where her work took her into the tunnels and research areas of the lab to make art out of science.

From WDCB’s First Light, Nov. 17, 2019: It’s hard to imagine the number of experiments that have been conducted and the discoveries made at Fermilab over its more than 50-year history. Fermilab photographer Reidar Hahn, who had rare access to many of those tests and scientific advances for more than 30 years of the lab’s life, is preparing to step down. Hear what Hahn, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer and Fermilab Art Gallery curator Georgia Schwender have to say about Hahn’s work in this 14-minute piece.

Join us today in the Art Gallery at noon for a Gallery Talk by Shanthi Chandrasekar and at 5-7pm for the Opening Reception of Cosmic Design.

In a new series of exhibits in the Fermilab Art Gallery, the Fermilab Archives will feature influential works loaned by the private collection of a Fermilab scientist. It kicks off with the current exhibit, which features works from the 17th and 18th centuries. Each display, which will rotate approximately once a month, will consist of several volumes illustrating a common theme in the evolution of physics.

It takes my hands to install artwork, special thanks to the volunteer art gallery committee. Artist Jane Barthes looks on and takes a few photographs. The artist reception is this Friday from 5-7pm. Hope you can make it.
