The Taubman Museum of Art is partnering with Jefferson College of Health Sciences for the 3rd Annual Senses and ScienceAbility Arts and Sciences Festival! With art and science-focused activities happening at The Taubman AND at Jefferson College of Health Sciences, this will be a day of immersion in the art and science worlds.

The 2019 Senses and ScienceAbility official theme is water, so you can expect hands-on, interactive activities showing the many ways we use water, especially in the arts!
