Join VMA's private tour with Vivian Altmann examining how art and science work hand-in-hand to foster curiosity and high-level thinking at the Exploratorium at the new location on the Embarcadero.

This event is sure to inspire the creative juices and help us understand how what we do as designers and marketers impact others with a special focus on visual perception, light, and color. With Vivian as your tour leader, she will combine her personal experience and background with her knowledge of the museum and the scientists and artists who collaborate on the Exploratoriums amazing range of exhibits. Your questions and depth of interest in a particular exhibit or area will also guide the direction of your tour.

Please arrive early enough to check-in and gather as we will begin the tour promptly at 6:15pm. The tour be followed by a reception where we can relax with our peers and discuss our very own "explorations." Visitors are free to explore the museum when the tour concludes until the museum closes at 10pm.

About Our Tour Leader
Vivian Altmann has worked at the Exploratorium since 1980. She attended UC Berkeley and majored in theatre design, which led to a particular interest in light and color. She currently manages the Community Educational Engagement Department, which partners with community organizations to bring Exploratorium programming to neighborhoods throughout San Francisco. Over the years she has developed STEM programs for adolescents and teens—currently embodied in the Xtech program here—as well as presenting at education conferences and working with museums and science exhibitions in places like Paris, New York, and Kobe. Most recently she has begun developing and prototyping programming that utilizes science phenomena to inspire creative writing and poetry.
