Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

Women to the Rescue

What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun community program by the Fleet Science Center. During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar™, local scientists will enjoy something everyone does: good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot; just look for the sign that reads, "We are scientists. Ask us anything!"

GUEST LECTURE - BHAVNA MEHTA

Jul 16, 2018

Join us for a special guest lecture with our summer exhibition artist, Bhavna Mehta.

The narrative arc of Leela spans wide - across oil and paper, East and West, old and contemporary. Bhavna Mehta will talk about some of the ideas that went into the thinking and making of Leela.

Bhavna Mehta works with paper – cutting and embroidering it to tell stories that combine figurative imagery with botanical motifs, text and shadows. Using paper as skin and thread to connect and mend, using cutting and sewing to talk about exposing and hiding, she makes work about relating and remembering.
