A DAVINCI PURSUIT POP-UP FUNDRAISER

Seeing the Unseen - Fall/Winter Fundraiser

The Hidden Worlds of Science and Art

We have amazing eyes. What we can see with the unaided eye is only a small fraction of what is possible to see with the aid of simple devices and techniques. From simple magnifying glasses to telescopes, microscopes, special cameras, and spectroscopes we are able to greatly expand our knowledge of ourselves and of the world around us. During this fall fundraiser, we are challenging you to use our small optics kit, for a $25 donation to the daVinci Pursuit, to view the world around you and take and post images of what you see using the kit. The best images will be posted on our website and on social media so that everyone can be inspired to learn new ways of seeing.

DONATE AND GET YOUR OPTICS KIT

For All of Us

Your gift enables daVinci Pursuit’s artists and scientists to create innovative programs, installations, and conversations within the diverse communities we serve. It has never been more important to make a gift to our work and ensure that we are able to continue serving the community.
