Science to Art

Friday, July 15, 2016 to Monday, September 12, 2016
Kemper East

The Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute’s (KCALSI) third annual Science to Art exhibition features intrinsic images found in biomedical research, which is often displayed on research journal covers. The purpose of Science to Art is to provide a platform for scientists to display and describe their research through the visual arts. Each of these remarkable images tells a personal research story and poetically captures the research performed by the scientists and their teams. These images were submitted by scientists from Columbia, Missouri to Manhattan, Kansas selected for this exhibition by arts and science professionals.

The works in the exhibition will be available through a silent auction held at the 2016 KCALSI Annual Dinner at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland on September 22, 2016. All proceeds from the 2016 Science to Art auction will benefit STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education in the community through the following organizations: BioGenius, Prep-KC, Science Pioneers, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
