. . . is a center for working at the intersection of
art and science, immersed in the natural world.
Our mission is to develop curiosity, creativity, and
connection to the natural world
through collaborative, participatory art + science.
We are located an hour northeast of Asheville, at a nexus of remarkable biological diversity, rare world-class geological exposures, dark skies for stargazing, and in the Toe River Arts district with a ridiculously abundant ratio of artists per capita.
