  • Description

    Please join the University Galleries in the Constance and Linton Grinter Gallery located in Grinter Hall for Book STEAM, an exhibition curated by artist Ellen Knudson that features her work as well as others, which show parallels between the skills artists and scientists use. The exhibit will be on display February 29 through March 26, 2018.

    Artwork by Molly Kempson, Peter Malukzti, Emily Van Kley, Melanie Valera, Catherine Alice Michaelis, Emile Bess Shelton, Judy Rushin, Denise Bookwalter, Allison Milham, Michelle Ray, AB Gorham, Julie Chen, Lee Emma Running, Stephanie Wolf, Radha Pandey, Sarah Bryant and David Allen is included.

    On the surface it may appear that scientists and artists have little in common, but the truth is that success in either area requires creativity, talent, dedication, and hard work. Scientists seek answers via evidence and data; artists use intuition and aesthetics to tease out the truth. The fundamental aim of both is to understand the universe and humanity's place in it. The works on display in the exhibition demonstrate the artists' interpretations of the basic nature of our existence via literal and figurative translations of scientific concepts. They may or may not be "true" in a scientific sense, but these books make us feel something. Who can argue that is not just as important as a technological advance?
