After careful consideration, we are temporarily closing the NCAR Mesa Lab and the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center to the public in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and protect our employees. This closure will begin March 12, 2020 until further notice and includes the cancelation of educational programs and tours of the exhibit areas.

Due to extended closure of the Mesa Lab building during the COVID-19 pandemic and related concerns, UCAR has made the difficult decision to conclude the Community Art Program.

The Community Art Program was conceived by NCAR's visionary founder, Walter Orr Roberts, as a way to welcome the public into our scientific space and build connections. For more than 50 years, our staff, our local community, and many thousands of public visitors from around the country and around the world have greatly enjoyed the work of our participating artists. This wonderful collaboration has connected us through the spark of inspiration and creativity common to both art and science. UCAR is grateful to have shared this amazing opportunity with so many.
