CCBC Gallery: The Head and the Art


The Head and the Art

On view in the CCBC Gallery December 18, 2018–January 27, 2019

The Head and the Art was organized by Taylor Newman (PhD student in Foods and Nutrition) and Megan Prescott (PhD candidate in Microbiology), both at the University of Georgia. The exhibition was funded by a COMPASS Outreach Grant through the American Society for Cell Biology. It was originally displayed at the University of Georgia Science Library in late November. The statement below is from the exhibition organizers.

Both science and art seek truth and understanding through creativity, problem solving, innovation, and experimentation. Science makes the invisible visible. Art makes the unknowable knowable. Together, there is no limit to our ability to understand the world around us.

The Head and the Art is an interdisciplinary collaboration that pushes the limits for a better understanding of science and art. We paired 7 local scientists and artists for various science-inspired works. Our pieces cover topics ranging from forest entomology to mindfulness and psychology, using mediums equally across the board— metalsmithing, weavings, and even tattoo drawings. We also have pieces from 5 individual artist and scientist contributors, as well as work from local chemistry and art students. The goal is to appeal to those who do not usually engage with science through art that is both informative and interactive.

To quote Carl Sagan, “Not explaining science seems to me perverse. When you're in love, you want to tell the world.” We hope this exhibit inspires you to fall in love with science, and see that art and science aren’t so different after all.
