Science and Art in the Art on Campus Collection

Traditionally, art and science have been treated as two separate disciplines, but when they are studied together it is clear to see the impact one has on the other. A great deal of creativity is required to make scientific breakthroughs, and art is just as often an expression of, or a product of, scientific knowledge. Join University Museum's Curators Adrienne Gennett and Allison Sheridan as they explore the intersections of art and science in the Art on Campus Collection. This tour will begin at the South entrance of the Molecular Biology Building.
