Housed in Fronczak Hall, the home of the Department of Physics, this permanent exhibition, uses visual arts and interactive displays to encourage nonscientists to understand and celebrate the discipline of physics in a non-intimidating and entertaining way.  To help demystify physics and to underscore its omnipresence in our modern world, this permanent, interactive ‘Physics and Arts Exhibition’ at UB features several original works of art that were created especially for the exhibition.


The bronze Atom Corral is a dramatic, abstract three-dimensional replica of an “atom corral,” which is a visualization of the electron probability cloud for a giant two-atom rubidium molecule.
