The Tesla Project is an all-day extravaganza dedicated to celebrating the genius of Nikola Tesla, a visionary scientist and engineer whose electrical inventions transformed the world. His most famous inventions include: AC power, the induction motor, fluorescent lighting, and radio. Inaugurated in 2010, The Tesla Project includes an art exhibition, a line-up of bands, Tesla-Roadsters, computer enrichment activities for children, a film screening, Tesla coil demos and how-to-presentations. This year we’re planning for an equally-electric event, with the art exhibition on view July 5 through July 27th and a Tesla-era costume contest. The 2014 Tesla Project is co-organized by artist Cathy Savage and Art.Science.Gallery., and will benefit GirlStart, a non-profit that provides strategies, resources and programs to increase the numbers of young women pursuing education and careers in science, math and engineering.
