Museum Celebrates Art and Science: ‘Through a Child’s Eyes’ and NANODays


JONESBORO – Arkansas State University Museum will present Through a Child’s Eyes XXVIII and NANODays on Sunday, April 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. Admission is free and everyone is invited to attend.

Through a Child’s Eyes (TACE) is a juried art show to which 27 schools both public and private within 60 miles of Jonesboro have submitted approximately 270 works of art created by children aged four through grade 8. 

First place, second place, and third place ribbons will be awarded by judges to each grade level and an overall winner will receive the coveted Charlott Jones Best in Show Award. 

In addition, ASU Museum’s Acquisition Committee will select some art pieces for $50 purchase from young artists who have made their works eligible for purchase.

After enjoying TACE, guests may enter the main gallery for hands-on NanoDays fun.  NanoDays at ASU Museum is a part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering.

This NanoDays event will explore the miniscule world of atoms, molecules, and nanoscale forces. Visitors will explore capillary action and non-Newtonian fluids, investigate new nano products and materials, and imagine what society might be like if we all wore invisibility cloaks.  Guests may also discover how electricity can make a nickel coin look like a penny.

For detailed information, interested individuals may contact Jill Kary (jkary@astate.edu), curator of education, ASU Museum, at 870-972-2074.
