The Phoenix Airport Museum will host its first Night at the Museum event on Friday, presenting art inspired by science.
The opening will be 4-7 p.m. Friday, March 24, on the level 3 gallery at terminal 4.
The exhibition was developed by the Phoenix Bioscience Core where nine local artists were paired with researchers to create artwork based on their different areas of study, according to a release.
“Working side-by-side in the lab, classroom and art studio, the resulting works are visual representations of the scientific progress happening in our city and state,” the release stated.
Visitors will meet the researchers and artists involved in the program and learn about their collaboration, and they also will be able to participate “in an augmented reality experience that allows viewers to walk through sections of the brain,” the release stated.
Museum staff will help with an art activity, treats and scavenger hunt to explore more art at the airport.
The event is free for all, not just travelers, according to the release.
