John and June Allcott Undergraduate Gallery: Artist/Scientist, works from ARTS/BIOL 409

Black-and-white on cream image of a circular pattern of ants converging around a dense black ant core at the center. Ants lay down pheromone trails that they use to follow each other--certain kinds of ants can end up following each other en masse in a circle, until they all die.

Students in this “Art & Science” class split their time in a classroom, lab and art studio. Taught by Bob Goldstein (biology) and Beth Garbowski (studio art), the class merged biology and printmaking—creating screen prints based on the images collected in the lab. In another class, students used their own phone cameras to capture microscopic images of ordinary things — from an Extreme Air Head candy to dryer lint! Now see their work on display in the John and June Allcott Undergraduate Gallery and the 2nd Floor Breezeway of Hanes Art Center.

Free and open to the public. Reception, Friday, February 8, 6-8 pm
