Opening Reception: Sunday, September 20 from 4pm to 6pm

By Matt Bokey and Steve Booty

Into The Canyons demonstrates how fine art can be used as a means of explaining complex scientific ideas in an engaging, entertaining, and enlightening way. While many view the arts and sciences as two separate entities, we believe the combination of the two creates an extremely powerful tool that both artists and science enthusiasts can get excited about.

Featured work comes from our first exploratory trip to the Southwest United States in June 2014 covering Bryce Canyon, Zion Canyon, and the Grand Canyon. For this show we are focusing on the geology, as it encompasses almost every science. Accompanying many of the images will be an informational card, explaining the science behind each photograph, helping create a deeper understanding of what the viewer sees.

By approaching science through visual arts, we want to stoke interest and excitement around the sciences among younger generations. This show is our first major step towards reaching that goal. Throughout the show, we will observe how viewers of all ages engage with the work and use that to help further refine our approach.
