Let the good times roll… dice?

Come indulge in a relaxed night of randomized fun at the museum! Led by artist and self-described “mad scientist” Tyler Thrasher, we’ll enjoy an evening of fantastic “botany” paired with drinks and light appetizers. Come learn how to use randomness as a creative tool as we turn twenty-sided dice and real-world genetics into illustrations of believable fantasy flora. Bring a friend and explore your creative side as we learn, unwind, roll some dice, and just plain have fun.

No prior experience in art or worldbuilding is necessary to be part of this program—we welcome guests of all experience levels. All materials are provided, along with light appetizers and one glass of beer or wine. See you there!

Tickets are $30 ($27 for members), register online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 to reserve your spot today.


About the Instructor

With an undying love for nature and its respective curiosities, there are few things Tyler Thrasher’s brain isn’t obsessing over. Between his pursuits to crystallize the world, opalize everything, and hunt down some of the realm’s most unique plants, his passion to combine art and science every step of the way is his fire and fuel.

Chances are if you catch Tyler at a party, he’ll talk your ear off about exploring caves, growing minerals in his lab, playing Dungeons and Dragons, hybridizing new plants, electronic music, grappling with and overcoming trauma, and just how amazingly beautiful and mysterious this whole wide universe is.


Per the  CDC’s updated guidelines, we are now requiring all guests ages 2 and up and staff to wear a face covering indoors and while attending outdoor programs, except while eating or drinking. Masks will be available upon entry for those who do not have one. Guests may remove their face covering to eat or drink, and will be socially distanced from guests not in their party.
