From Northern Public Radio (CA), July 7, 2021: Georgia Schwender, visual arts coordinator at Fermilab discusses the inclusion of art at Fermilab with Northern Public Radio. Santa Barbara resident Mark Hirsch was named the 2021 artist for the Fermilab artist-in-residence program. In his upcoming work, he will reimagine and translate the scientific data and discoveries into digital and physical forms that communicate the complexities that are inherent to the work occurring at Fermilab.

Fermilab has selected California-based visual artist Mare Hirsch as its 2021-22 artist-in-residence. The program, now in its seventh year, connects physics and art. Hirsch, who uses computer models and coding for her art, will draw on her data visualization background to make Fermilab science more accessible and intriguing to the public.

From Daily Herald, Jan. 7, 2021: On Tuesday, Jan. 12, the Fermilab Art and Lecture Series will present its next virtual gallery talk on “Imagining Reality,” a photographic journey with Fermilab scientist Steve Geer. He will describe his artistic process as applied to various photographic projects that he’s exhibited in galleries and published in books and magazines.

Visualizing dark matter is not an easy task. Although scientists have reason to believe the mysterious substance makes up about 27% of all the matter and energy in the universe, they still have yet to see it directly; they know it exists only because of its gravitational pull on the visible matter around it. An art exhibit at the Science Gallery Dublin combines art and science to illuminate the invisible nature of dark matter.

From Chicago Gallery News, Sept. 15, 2020: The exhibit “Unexpected: Lisa Goesling & Deanna Krueger” starts at the Fermilab Art Gallery on Sept. 16. While Goesling and Krueger use different materials, they both approach their art with a sense of wonder. What evolves is an energy that is not only seen but also felt.

From WDCB’s First Light, Jan. 19, 2020: In this 13-minute radio piece, First Light host chats with Fermilab’s newest artists-in-residence Patrick Gallagher and Chris Klapper during their visit to the lab. While the science being done at Fermilab is amazing, if you’re not a particle physicist, that work can be difficult to understand. Making it understandable is one of the goals of the artist-in-residence program.
