Artist-in-residence program

Fermilab is America’s national laboratory dedicated to particle physics research. To initiate and stimulate communication and interactions among scientists, artists and the public, the laboratory has created an artist-in-residence program. The Fermilab artist-in-residence will interact with scientists at the laboratory, learn about their research, see how it connects to society. Then use this information to create a body of work, leading to presentations in the  community and possibly an exhibition of the artwork at Fermilab.
