As a part of the Exploratorium's opening ceremonies, Miwa Matreyek performed in our Outdoor Gallery on April 17, 2013. In her live performance, Matreyek interacted with beautifully expressed cinematic narratives that unfolded as wondrous journeys, exploring nature and the human imagination.
For thousands of years, Indian women have created these elaborate geometric designs using a variety of natural materials—flowers, spices, sand, and natural pigment—to mark auspicious occasions, celebrations, and milestones. Since 1969, the Exploratorium has set the standard for hands-on, inquiry-based education. See how our new Pier 15 home, with its new exhibits and expanded resources, is helping us achieve our mission: to change the way the world learns.
For our first episode in a new season of "Science in the City," we explore the creation of a bell for the Exploratorium’s new home at Pier 15.
Artist Nick Diphillipo has been designing and casting bells and other objects for over thirty years. He teaches bell making at The Crucible in Oakland, California, as well as other foundry-related subjects.

We were in the Mission and Bayview districts and on the Embarcadero for a free, preopening extravaganza that was part road show, part street festival, and all Exploratorium. On the Move featured a fleet of moving trucks equipped with museum exhibits and experiences accompanied by artworks, films, food, family activities, and live performances that culminated in a spectacular finale at Pier 15.
Join us in the Mission, Bayview, and Embarcadero for a free preopening extravaganza that’s part road show, part street festival, and all Exploratorium. Ongoing through March 31, 2013 | Times and locations TBA
Location: Multiple locations in San Francisco; for specific locations, follow @theexplainers on Twitter.
In the months before our grand opening, orange-vested Explainers will bring the Exploratorium experience to unexpected spots around San Francisco. These weekly site-specific activities will be designed to make you notice and engage with the world around you, and to shake you out of your normal, everyday routines.
Explainers will help you notice clouds at Aquatic Park, find north without a compass at Ghirardelli Square, experience our mobile Camera Obscura in Union Square, and challenge your sense of perception out in the neighborhoods. In January locations will vary; in February and March, look for those orange vests along the Embarcadero, in front of Pier 15.
