Seismique, a technology-fueled experiential art museum, opened at 2306 S. Hwy. 6, Houston, on Dec. 26. With more than 40 different galleries created by 65 artists and crafters, the 40,000-square-foot museum features 9 million LED lights and 111 projectors.

The museum’s exhibits explore topics such as extraterrestrial beings, artificial intelligence, immersive experiences, gamification and more.

Seismique’s mission, in part, is to support local artists, and to that goal, the museum reserved 12 of the galleries for Houston-based artists. Furthermore, the museum hopes to serve as an educational experience for local schools looking for technology-driven learning opportunities.

“I am really looking forward to seeing the expressions on peoples’ faces when they experience Seismique for the first time—I liken it to the equivalent of walking through a portal and into an alternative universe that is a feast for the senses,” Seismique creator Steve Kopelman said. “This year has been exceedingly difficult for the whole world, and we want Seismique to serve as something of a pandemic panacea—a place where visitors can transport themselves to another realm and find creative inspiration through the artistic manifestation of 40 different exhibits.”

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Seismique is operating at limited capacity and requiring masks. 346-202-6006. www.seismique.com
