DESCRIPTION

ENERGY is a collaboration of three art galleries in Batavia, Illinois: Fermilab Art Gallery, The Gallery at Allen+Pepa, and Water Street Studios.
Batavia has been nicknamed the "City of Energy" due to its history of windmill production and its status as home to the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). Each gallery will display art work that references a particular type of energy.

 

* Fermilab will showcase work inspired by potential energy, the energy stored in a body or system due to its position in a force field. 

* The Gallery at Allen+Pepa will feature work related to mechanical energy, the sum of potential and kinetic energy present in the components of a mechanical system.

* Water Street Studios will present work referencing kinetic energy, the energy possessed by an object due to its motion.
