On a hot summer day, nothing is more appealing than stepping into a cool museum and exploring the array of interesting offerings—from famed French paintings and masterpieces of the greatest American artists to exhibitions examining the most horrific moments in global and United States history. 

Over the past weekend that I spent in Washington, DC, I had the pleasure of visiting ARTECHOUSE, an incredibly innovative museum that explores the intersection of art, science, and technology. The museum opened in DC in 2017 and has since expanded, now boasting locations in Miami and New York City. The vibrant visuals, topical relevance, and interactive components make this museum truly a one-of-a-kind, and I cannot wait to return in the near future to see ARTECHOUSE's latest installation. 

Below is a description of ARTECHOUSE's current installation, Renewal 2121, as written on their website.


Inspired by the annual cherry blossom season and utilizing the power of creative technology, Renewal 2121 seeks to inspire hope amid a global pandemic and concerns of climate change.

Transporting us 100 years into the future, it immerses us in an industrial city where nature fights to survive amid an overdeveloped metropolis. This is a future that will arrive if humanity continues unchecked at its current pace.

However, there is a hopeful message to be discovered as blossoms are seen peeking through the plastic, concrete and neon lights, ready to renew the season with the help of those willing to take action.
