GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World - Carnegie Science Center

Strum away through interactive displays showcasing the history, evolution, and science of guitars. As the world’s most popular musical instrument, the guitar has been part of our culture for hundreds of years. It has been around longer than baseball, football, and hamburgers and is the most enduring icon in American history! It has changed people’s lives and it has changed society. This touring guitar exhibit showcases nearly 70 acoustic, electric, historical, and unusual guitars. The most unforgettable is the world’s largest playable electric guitar – 43 feet long and weighing as much as a small car (2,200 pounds!) This guitar has been certified by the The Guinness Book of World Records. Rock out to the history of guitars in this featured exhibit. GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World will take visitors through the evolution of guitars, from their design and sound, to their association with important musicians. For example, visitors will learn that the body of an acoustic guitar is held solely with pressure and glue, not nails and screws. Packed with STEM-based elements, GUITAR introduces visitors to the science of sound and the science of music through 15 hands-on interactives. Visitors will learn about electromagnetism, sound waves, frequency, decibel levels, mathematical scales, engineering design, and materials. Additional concepts include amplification, memory skills, and performance.

Summer Flower Show: Monet in Bloom - Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden

This summer, experience the breathtaking art of Claude Monet brought to vibrant life through Phipps' incredible horticultural displays. In 2019, Phipps' Summer Flower Show: Van Gogh in Bloom wowed thousands of guests with large-scale creations of the painter's famed work. Starting Sat., May 7, Phipps turns its eye to another icon as we present Monet in Bloom, based on the works of impressionist painter Claude Monet. In this spectacular new show, our summer displays will give three-dimensional life to Monet's breathtaking scenes of delicate flora and dreamlike design — beloved works that have stood the test of time for 100 years. Just as Monet connected with the natural world by painting outdoors to immerse himself in nature, Phipps now reimagines his art through the flora that inspired it, paying transformative tribute to "Water Lilies," "The Saint-Lazare Station" and even the artist's iconic studio boat through horticultural display.
