Monthly Meet Up on First Wednesday of the Month. Brighton District Library., 100 Library Drive, Brighton, MI
Art + Science = BioArtography! with Deborah L. Gumucio, Ph.D. Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 6:30 p.m. Brighton Library
In the course of their research, scientists use stains to add color to otherwise transparent tissues, to enable detailed observation under a microscope. The tissues might be from the human body, from a mouse, a fruit fly, or even a grain of yeast, but once stained, these amazingly beautiful structures appear as vibrantly colored, abstract-like works of art. Each year, a jury of artists and scientists at the University of Michigan cull through submissions from researchers across several disciplines to select the microscopic images that will be reproduced as art prints or notecards for the BioArtography Project, which are then sold at the Ann Arbor Art Fair.
