Tom Shannon: Universe in the Mind | Mind in the Universe
For more than 50 years, artist and inventor Tom Shannon has been exploring the intersections of art, science and technology in unexpected, mind-bending ways. Science Museum Oklahoma guests have the chance to experience his science-inspired art in a new exhibition opening Nov. 24 in the museum’s smART Space galleries: “Tom Shannon: Universe in the Mind | Mind in the Universe.”
Shannon’s internationally-renowned work features sculpture that explores scientific themes and natural forces like magnetic fields, large-scale installations, paintings and numerous patented inventions like his synchronous world clock, a version of which is in the Smithsonian Institution’s collection. The smART Space exhibition is his first in Oklahoma and is open through Oct. 25, 2020.
