Fermilab Arts, Lecture and Gallery Series

The Fermilab Arts and Lecture Series serves as an open door between Fermilab and our neighboring communities by offering a diverse array of performing arts performances and lectures that celebrate the artistic and intellectual vision of the lab.

Coming Soon — Join us on March 24 as Dr. Mark Pankuch of the Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center discusses “Cancer Treatments & Particle Accelerators.” On April 1, DakhaBrakha follows up their SXSW International Stage performance with a visit to Ramsey Auditorium.
