Deconstructed: The NSLM Sporting Screen centers on a unique decorative object from the NSLM’s permanent collection. Recently conserved, the four-panel screen is comprised of paintings and prints showing 18th century racing portraits on one side and manège training (an early form of dressage) on the other. The exhibit will cast light on a captivating era in British sport, art, and literature.
NSLM melds art with science to create NSLMology, an exhibition for explorers of all ages! Visitors are invited to experience scientific principles within three centuries of paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and hands-on activities. Get up close and personal with the physics of locomotion and identify meteorological patterns, ecology, the science of colors, and even chemistry.
Locomotion: Horses gallop faster than human eyes can comprehend. How was this mystery of motion solved?
Weather: Wind, water cycles, and cloud types are all on display for scientific inquiry.
Ecology: What plants and animals do we find in the wild, and what do they eat to survive?
Color theory: How do artists mix colors to show temperature and mood?
Chemistry: How many states of matter are used to create bronze sculptures? What elements make up the alloy bronze?
Enjoy highlights from the permanent collection in an entirely fresh way as a self-guided experience or contact us to book a group tour.
