Join MAX at the Intersection of Art and Science

We are proud to announce that in our first year we will be presenting world-class artists, scientists, and artist-engineers in some of San Francisco’s most renowned venues.

In MAX 2019: A Space Festival with 3 days of programming at The Exploratorium, the California Academy of Sciences, and Z Space, we will present works, small and large, that explore the new space age, the extraordinary scientific advances in this field, and the effect on our lives.

 

 

The Outer Space

The Outer Space is a program put on by collaborator Ethan Lipton.

A couple buys an old spaceship to leave behind an overcrowded Earth in a musical about moving out and into the final frontier.

Ethan Lipton and his band take you on a journey about trying to run away from it all only to run into yourself, in space.
