Join us April 7th for a special First Friday event: "Shaping Our Genetic Future" sponsored by NCSU Libraries.

In addition to CAM’s incredible exhibitions, music, and food trucks the evening will include several fun and interactive science-inspired exhibits for the whole family. Seven artists will be showing and talking about their work, which explores questions and implications around humanity's genetic future. You'll get to touch extracted DNA, consider the perfumes from extinct flower species, and hear the improvisational acoustic band Cyanotype interpret genetic code as a musical score. Participating artists include Kirsten Stolle, Adam Zaretsky, Christina Agapakis, Paul Vanouse, and the Center for PostNatural History.

Admission is FREE for everyone 6-10 PM.
