The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) invites you to take a deep dive into the mysterious world of deep-sea exploration and discovery this summer!  Children of all ages will love exploring life at the bottom of the sea. With multiple interactives using modern technology, visitors will learn firsthand about the geologic forces deep within the earth and the magnificent engineering feats of Mother Nature as they explore our latest exhibition Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss presented by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).

Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss exhibition puts the technology necessary for deep-sea exploration in your hands so that you may develop a greater interest in scientific discovery or, at the very least, a better appreciation for the pursuit. You will join fellow explorers in an interior replica of the submersible Alvin's 

personnel sphere, which you can operate to simulate a dive to depths of up to three miles. You can fly a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) over a model of the Titanic's deck or test your skill at manipulating Alvin's robotic arm by picking up lava rocks and clams from the seafloor while peering through a re-creation of Alvin's four-inch viewport window. It's not as easy as it looks!

Geologic forces deep within the earth drive the great crustal plates of our planet, building seafloor features that create hydrothermal vents. Researchers study the process firsthand in WHOI’s submersible Alvin, or using other tools like the remotely operated vehicle JASON and autonomous underwater vehicles ABE and REMUS

Extreme Deep brings the sea floor to the surface in an amazing display that illustrates the magnificent engineering feats of Mother Nature, such as the building of enormous “black smokers” that spew mineral-rich fluid into the ocean supporting life vastly different from that flourishing on land or shallow water.

Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss exhibition will be open from May 20 to September 4, 2017 in the Discovery Pavilion of IMAS. There is an additional $4 charge for this exhibit except for Family Premium Members or above. Be sure to mark the exhibition dates in your calendar. Ask us about our Museums for All program. For more information on Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss, please call (956) 682-0123 or visit www.theimasonline.org. IMAS is located at 1900 W. Nolana Avenue, McAllen, TX 78504.

    Contact: Abigail Alaniz   956-682-0123   aalaniz@theimasonline.com
   

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is pleased to present Imaginary Botanicals: Sculptures in Glass by Kathleen Elliot, an exhibition of works from the last decade by California-based artist Kathleen Elliot in the Central Gallery of IMAS from May 20 through September 10, 2017. Elliot creates sculptures out of flame worked glass, using a variety of botanical forms including leaves, flowers, fruits, pods, and vines that convey a sense of fantasy and mystery.

Her work has moved from the representational to the imaginary, in which plant forms incorporate human characteristics and convey a sense of fantasy and mystery. Her sculptures are modern studio glass, a blend of art, science, and technological innovation that embrace the notion of glass as a medium for creative expression, in contrast to its use in industrial production.

Prior to being an artist, she had a career as a hairstylist; then built a career in organizational development. In 1991, an invitation from a friend to try glasswork in his garage paved the way to a new life. Elliot took to working with glass immediately and began teaching herself the art of making glass beads, which she pursued for the next eight years. This introduction to flame work, working with a torch directly on glass, was to serve as the basis for her future sculptural projects.

Elliot took her first glassblowing workshop in 1996 and studied art at De Anza College. She attended the Pilchuck Glass School for three summers where she studied with leading glass artists Laura Donefer, Robert Mickelsen, and Shane Fero. The Imaginary Botanical series explores and plays with the notion of imagination, using whatever ideas struck her: a plant and cyclone hybrid, a botanical giraffe, a plant ballerina. It’s a fun series.

The exhibition Imaginary Botanicals: Sculptures in Glass by Kathleen Elliot is organized through Katherine T. Carter & Associates. Join us for all of our new programs and activities! General admission is FREE for IMAS Members; $7/Adult; $5/Senior or Student with ID; $4/Child (4-12). Ask us about our Museums for All program. For more information, please call (956) 682-0123.

In June, IMAS celebrates 50 years of serving the Rio Grande Valley Community. On June 2, 1967 the Junior Service League and the City of McAllen obtained permission to start the museum as the McAllen International Museum. We opened our doors on October 26, 1969 and have since evolved from a quaint 5,000 square feet building to a 50,000 square feet building with a new name, the International Museum of Art & Science, and hosting premier exhibition and education spaces which allow us to showcase art and science exhibitions from around the world, present engaging programs and activities for kids and adults, and foster a love of learning.

IMAS proudly boasts our American Alliance of Museums (AAM) accreditation, being a Smithsonian Affiliate and member of the Institute of Museum & Library Services and the Association of Children’s Museums program Museums For All. In addition we are a participant in The Association of Science and Technology’s reciprocal museum program allowing our members to enjoy free general admission access to over 300 associated museums, zoos, aquariums, and other non-profits both nation and worldwide.

In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we are offering our valued community a golden opportunity to purchase the Family Membership for $50 ($25 savings) from June 1 to June 30, 2017 and join us as we embark on our journey to the future. By becoming an IMAS member you enjoy the Museum’s innovative exhibitions and programming events as often as you like for one price. You can be a part of our mission and help us realize our vision to become the #1 destination in Texas by becoming a full on sensory experience for learning and inspiration.

Oscar Alvarez: Of Beasts and Butterflies will be on exhibition at the McAllen Public Library from June 25 through September 10, 2017. Brownsville self-taught artist Oscar Alvarez is by day a funeral director. In his second career, he is a painter of fantastical, playful and mysterious images. Delving into his rich imagination, Alvarez creates paintings that play with the contrast between our dreams and our nightmares. Circus themes, fantastical animals and brilliant colors mingle with monsters, flames and darkness. The beasts and butterflies speak to the dichotomies we all experience in our lives.

Sergio Gonzalez will discuss the lives and the people that first came to the RGV in the 1740's. 

The Weslaco Museum is launching a new program this summer with the help of many local living historians and "experimental archaeologists." These programs will offer some wonderful opportunities to get a firsthand look of what people used, how the items were made, what they were used for, and how they impacted our history. 

This would be a great program to promote to students as it will inevitably be very hands on and help bring history alive in some respects.

Steve Lanoux uses some of his life’s journey to investigate conflicting demands for water in the state of Texas, the bureaucratic maze that faces residents and industries, and some of the economic factors that influence decision-making about water. This presentation takes us from the salt water bays and marshes along the Gulf of Mexico to the underground reservoirs deep beneath the surface and shows how they are all tied together into a single system managed by many different agencies with an equally diverse set of priorities and regulations. In addition to Mr. Lanoux holding a Doctorate in his education, he is passionate about being a Texas Master Naturalist and certified Water Quality Monitor.

 

This presentation on Tuesday, July 11th is hosted by Rio Grande Valley Chapter Texas Master Naturalist at the Cameron County Extension Offices, 1390 W Expressway 83, San Benito, 78586. Come at 6:30 PM for a social half-hour, with the business meeting and presentation beginning at 7:00 PM. These meetings are free and open to the public. If you are interested in water rights and issues in Cameron County, you will enjoy Steve’s presentation.

Don Drefke will look at the goods that were used by traders in their dealings with the local native american inhabitants. Some discussion of basic native clothing may be looked at.

The Weslaco Museum is launching a new program this summer with the help of many local living historians and "experimental archaeologists." These programs will offer some wonderful opportunities to get a firsthand look of what people used, how the items were made, what they were used for, and how they impacted our history.

Introducing even one more way you can recycle your surplus goods! Take your plastic bags from the food store, gift shops, and discount centers and make them into something creative – woven into such items as a tote bag, a sit-upon, a beach mat, or a basket. The verb: to plarn! 

Plarn (short for plastic yarn) is crocheted or knitted into useful objects, while removing the bags from our landfills and giving you a new summer activity. A workshop in “Working with Plarn” will be hosted and conducted by the Rio Grande Valley Chapter Texas Master Naturalists on Wednesday, July 19 from 1-4 PM at the Cameron County Extension Office, 1390 W Expressway 83, San Benito, TX 78586. The fee is $10 for the workshop (bring your own size 10 or bigger knitting needles OR size N or bigger crochet hook, whichever is your tool of preference), or $15 if you need a hook or needles. Each person should bring all those pesky plastic bags lying about the house, and a pair of scissors. 

Learn how to convert plastic bags into plarn, then to construct mats, coasters, bags and baskets from the plarn you make. It is fun, it is easy, and a great summer activity the kids can join in. You can teach them! If you don’t need any accessories, take the benevolent route and make sleeping mats for the homeless and donate them. To register, contact Heidi Linnemann at hhlinnemann@aol.com or call 956-797-2872. Register yourself, your activity directors, or your Girl Scout Troop leaders! Check out the workshop on the RGVCTMN website at www.rgvctmn.org and register with Paypal.

Looking for some summer night fun? Start with IMAS popular Stars & Skies Parties as we explore the evening skies above Rio Grande Valley.

Each party is a unique and new adventure!

On August 3rd, join us as we explore the science behind the total eclipse occurring August 21st with exciting hands-on activities. Discover the different types of eclipses and what they look like here on the Earth.

Ruben Cordova will investigate the clothing and equipment of the Apache Scouts. Some discussion on Apache culture will also be included.

The Weslaco Museum is launching a new program this summer with the help of many local living historians and "experimental archaeologists." These programs will offer some wonderful opportunities to get a firsthand look of what people used, how the items were made, what they were used for, and how they impacted our history. 

This would be a great program to promote to students as it will inevitably be very hands on and help bring history alive in some respects.

The Board of Trustees and the Museum’s staff members are excited to announce Collage 2017: IMAS 50th Anniversary, a black-tie celebration, which will take place at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) on September 16th from 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. Mark your calendars and reserve your tickets to join us as we honor both individuals and businesses that have supported us over the past 50 years. Collage is one of the longest running fundraisers raising critical funds and is one of the most eagerly anticipated social events of the year that benefits IMAS. These funds allow us to continue creating an inspirational legacy by providing life enhancing art and science exhibitions, educational programs, and cultural events serving to inspire our visitors to “Think. Discover. Experience. & Create!”

This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the International Museum of Art & Science also known as the McAllen International Museum (MIM). The Museum was chartered under the laws of the state of Texas on June 2, 1967 through the efforts of the Women’s Junior Service League and the McAllen City Commission to increase the quality of life for the citizens of the Rio Grande Valley and to provide activities in the arts and sciences that are meaningful, educational, and available to the public.

The Museum was dedicated and formally opened to the public on October 26, 1969. During that time the Museum presented and showcased collections in art, science and history. The Museum staff members and Board of Trustees made acquisitions to grow the museum’s collection of Mexican folk art and contemporary art of the region. In addition to art acquisitions, the Museum also collected scientific specimens of rocks, minerals, and sea life including coral and shells.

In 1974 when the McAllen citizens voted to construct a new 21, 000 sq. ft. building at its present location on Nolana Ave. through a city bond. The Board of Trustees raised $400,000 for new exhibits, furnishings and landscaping. In 1982, the Board of Trustees narrowed the focus of the museum to the arts and sciences and in 2001 an additional building was added and the name changed to the International Museum of Art & Science.

Today IMAS has 50,000 sq. ft. of exhibition, programming and outside sculpture and play space. IMAS is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), is a Smithsonian Affiliate, a member of the Association of Science and Technology Centers and Museums for All program. IMAS, the largest art and science museum in the Rio Grande Valley, hosts over 70,000 visitors a year. IMAS has delighted visitors by featuring the finest national and international art and science exhibitions while providing exceptionally engaging educational programs since its establishment on June 2, 1967. A must see exhibition at IMAS is the Science on a Sphere, located inside the IMAS Theatre. There are only 145 Science on a Sphere theaters throughout the world.
