Support Cultural Programs of the NAS

Please support Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences. Your gift will help showcase world-class examples of the work being created at the intersection of art, science, and culture. Your support helps us:

Bring together creative thinkers from the arts and sciences. February 2015 will mark the beginning of our fourth year of the D.C. Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER), a program of salons that promote dialogue between the disciplines of art and science and offer a place for networking to foster creativity and innovation. In 2015, we will host DASERs exploring themes ranging from the International Year of Light to Man Ray and math.

Organize art exhibitions that explore science. The NAS Building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. has two intimate gallery spaces in which we curate exhibition that explore the intersection of art, science, and culture. Focusing on such diverse themes as deep time, data visualization, or the biological ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico, our exhibitions explore science through the unique perspective of art.

Collaborate with local theater companies. Since 2009, we have worked with the Shakespeare Theatre Company to offer readings of classic plays with themes that are relevant to science. In 2013, we began collaborating with Studio Theatre to offer readings of contemporary plays. Theater offers a platform for considering the cultural, social, and personal impact that science has on our lives. We are planning three theatrical readings in 2015.

Offer all of our programs to the public for FREE!
