2017 Art Exhibit Winners
26th Annual High School Art Exhibition
Feb. 22 - Mar. 11, 2017 Ridenbaugh Gallery
Scientists seek to understand the vexing problems facing humankind including public health, the environment, and natural and manmade disasters. It is often difficult to explain the vastness of their research or the problems they seek to answer to the general public. What does a virus or bacteria look like as it travels through the air or body? What will our world look like in 20 years?
Some of the issues we face are so complicated and frightening that much of the population chooses not to look at the science, facts, and graphs. Art can help us communicate and understand important research. While scientists seek to convey knowledge through research and data, artists seek to change culture through their unique vision.
