From Feb. 24–Sept. 3, 2018, The Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park will host MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, an exhibit based on the Discovery Channel's Emmy®-nominated series that uncovers truths behind popular myths by mixing the scientific method with gleeful curiosity and old-fashioned ingenuity. The exhibition creates hands-on, interactive experiences for visitors of all ages by combining popular scientific facts with innovative, family-friendly displays. (1/18)

Garden-themed tapestries from the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre in Egypt are currently on display at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas through March 31, 2018. The Egyptian artists vividly celebrate the flowers of the desert, villages and Nile River in their works which are on rare display in this public garden. The exhibition features 15 wool tapestries and 20 cotton weavings, all unique and woven by individual artists who work for up to four months on each tapestry using Egyptian sheep wool dyed with traditional vegetable dyes that are planted in the gardens of the art center in Giza. This project transformed the lives of the villagers, bringing prosperity, education, better health, self-respect and satisfaction to those involved and high status and equality to the village women.
