Beall Center for Art + Technology at UC Irvine
The mission of the Beall Center is to support research and exhibitions that explore new relationships between the arts, sciences, and engineering, and thus, promote new forms of creation and expression using digital technologies. The Beall Center aspires to redefine the museum/gallery experience, both in content and form, forumlating answers to the questions of how technology can be used effectively, not only to create new forms of art, but also to connect artist to artist, and artist with audience. Once a year, the Beall Center produces an Expressive Robotics camp for ages 13-19, which combines art, science, engineering, dance, design, and math in order to create robotic structures. In addition to the camp, the Beall Center also produces two Family Days a year, which are free and open to the public. These events take place in the Spring and Fall of each year, and are comprised of activity booths, performances, and demos suitable for all ages.
