The Creative Mind was made to highlight the contributions of African Americans in the fields of medicine, mathematics, engineering and science. The exhibit consists of a series of educational panels designed and produced by the National Academy of Sciences in Washington D.C.

“We are committed to promoting this understanding with our partners, and hope that visitors come away better prepared and determined to tackle issues with the same passion as those featured in the exhibit,” said Frank Castellanos, Bank of America President of Hampton Roads.

General admission has been reduced to $7.57 on opening day courtesy of presenting sponsor, Bank of America.

“Bank of America believes that exhibits such as The Creative Mind have the power to inspire visitors to get involved with and solve big issues we face today, and those we’ll face tomorrow,” added Castellanos.

The exhibit is set to open on January 15 and will be on display through April 2. The exhibit will feature the following experiments that have been adapted from real-world discoveries:

  • Modeling the Future: How Scientists Understand Climate Change
  • Plastic Pollution, Lifelong Solutions: Techniques for Recycling and Reusing Plastics
  • Using Salty Seas to meet our Water Needs
