Exploratorium After Dark:
The Art of Tinkering & The Art of Tinkering Book Launch Celebration

Explore your inventive side and celebrate the Tinkering Studio’s new book, The Art of Tinkering, featuring 150 artists and makers. Tinkered attire is strongly encouraged.

The Art of Tinkering is here! To celebrate this essential introduction to the seriously playful world of tinkering, we’ve invited makers featured within and without its pages to share their projects with you.

Look for artworks, films, and activities throughout the museum, and engage your manual curiosity with a wealth of tinkering tools and materials. Meet with makers working at the intersection of science, art, and technology, and get inspired to tinker. That is: to go forth, get stuck, get ideas, and ultimately gain insight into the way things work—on your own terms.

The Art of Tinkering was coauthored by Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich, Codirectors of the Exploratorium’s Tinkering Studio. Learn more about the Tinkering Studio and its team.

=======

Experience life After Dark, an evening series exclusively for adults that mixes cocktails, conversation, and playful, innovative science and art events.

Not a theater, cabaret, or gallery, After Dark contains aspects of all three. Each evening showcases a different topic—from music to sex to electricity— but all include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits. Join us and mingle with inventive scientists, artists, musicians, programmers, and designers. Enjoy live performances, provocative films, interesting music, cutting-edge technology, unexpected extravaganzas, and more, depending on each evening's lineup. Leave the kids at home and meet friends or take a date. Where else can you find an intellectually stimulating playground for adults?

Our East Gallery is located at the very end of Pier 15 and focuses on Living Systems. From this vantage point you can see the Tidal Memory (tubes) in the foreground, Algae Chandelier hanging from the ceiling on the left, our beloved 330 year old tree Big Wood toward the back, and an ever-active Explainer Station on the right. Come check it out!

The museum of science, art and human perception, for all ages, located in San Francisco.
Introduction
The Exploratorium is a museum of science, art, and human perception founded in 1969 by Dr. Frank Oppenheimer. Our mission is to create a culture of learning through innovative environments, programs, and tools that help people nurture their curiosity about the world around them.

We believe that following your curiosity and asking questions can lead to amazing moments of discovery, learning, and awareness, and can increase confidence in your ability to understand how the world works. We also believe that being playful and having fun is an important part of the process for people of all ages.

Our grand opening at Pier 15 is Wednesday, April 17! Visitors are strongly urged to buy tickets in advance to minimize entry time waiting in line. http://www.exploratorium.edu/visit/tickets
