About Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences (CPNAS)
When the National Academy of Sciences' home was built in 1924, architect Grosvenor Bertram Goodhue incorporated the work of artists, sculptors and muralists to adorn the building with striking visual elements. These works define the space, communicate the history of science, and enhance the experience of those who visit the NAS.
Continuing in this tradition, Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences (CPNAS) organizes rotating art exhibitions and a permanent art collection that explore relationships among culture and sciences, engineering, and medicine. Additionally, CPNAS hosts a concert series featuring a range of internationally acclaimed musicians. CPNAS also provides other special programs that include lectures on a variety of topics.
