The Beauty of Science Now on View at the ASRC

Science and art converge in an unusual exhibition featuring images of brain cells, photos of trees, and paintings inspired in part by the eyes of endangered animals.

The show, called Objects & objectivities: Convergences in epistemic divergence, is on display at The Graduate Center’s Advanced Science Research Center.

The exhibition was funded by Vigdor’s PSC CUNY grant. The exhibit is open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Dec. 21 at the ASRC (85 St. Nicholas Terrace, fourth floor, Manhattan).
