10TH BIENNIAL ART & SCIENCE EXHIBITION
The 10th Art & Science Exhibition aims to showcase the place where art and science meet. A call for submissions went out to students, faculty, and staff looking for works of art that reference scientific concepts or pieces of science that look like art. The resulting juried collection shows us that fine arts and the sciences are not at odds with one another, but in fact they are often one and the same.
