18 February 2019 – Open-air festival “Chemical Elements” will be launched during “Museum Night -2019” (the biggest cultural event in Russia) in the framework of the SCIENCE QUARTER.
The original programming includes:
“Chemical Quest” throughout the exposition space with scientific laboratories, where each exhibit will feature one chemical element to showcase chemistry from various areas of knowledge.
- “Chemical Alphabet”, where well-known artists together with scientists will be drawing the elements of the Periodic Table. With the help of the scientists, objects for drawing symbolizing each element will be selected, and during “Museum Night” a joint “painting” will take place, as a result of which a “Popular Periodic Table” will be created.
- “Law of Octaves” – a musical program will help to explain the harmony of the material world, based on existing chemical elements, because the music is also characterized by periodicity.
- “Edible Table” – gastronomy fair and street food festival will welcome visitors to taste the culinary cooking and find out what chemical elements are behind the flavours of favourite drinks, meals and products.
