Science to Art

Friday, July 21, 2017 to Sunday, September 3, 2017

The Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute’s (KCALSI) fourth 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 and curated by Erin Dziedzic of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

The works in the exhibition will be available through a silent auction held at the 2017 KCALSI Annual Dinner at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland on September 19, 2017. All proceeds from the 2017 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 City and the Greater Kansas City Science & Engineering Fair, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
