Break out your best green for the launch of the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2017 – Gregor Mendel, celebrating the founder of modern day genetics. The evening will include insights into Mendel and his peas by Director of the Mendel Museum Ondřej Dostál and lecture by Villanova University Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics Edward Guinan on Beyond Peas and Genetics - Gregor Mendel’s “Other” Sciences: Bees, Sunspots, Meteorology and Tornados on September 14, 2017, at 6 pm. The launch will also feature the opening of the exhibition Gregor Johann Mendel – Science, Beliefs, Politics.   

Explore the multitude of pioneering scientific discoveries and political and civil contributions Mendel achieved as a teacher, monk, beekeeper, biologist, meteorologist, and ultimately Abbot, the ecclesiastical leader for sixteen years. In the end, was he a man of God or a man of science?       

Share in a toast to a new season of the festival in Washington, DC – MORE PEAS PLEASE!             

The event is part of the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2017-Gregor Mendel. For more information, please visit
