The Princeton University ‘Art of Science’ exhibition explores the interplay between science and art.
Entries are chosen for their aesthetic excellence, their scientific or technical interest, and for their universal appeal that crosses cultures, languages and age groups. The 2017 selections, currently on view in the Friend Center atrium, drew from more than 170 submissions from a wide range of disciplines from astrophysical sciences to history, and includes images and videos by undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, alumni and staff.
Judges for the competition were James Steward, the Nancy A. Nasher-David J. Haemisegger, Class of 1976, Director of the Princeton University Art Museum; Emmet Gowin, professor of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts, emeritus; and Jeff Whetstone, professor of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts.
The exhibit is free and open to public during Friend Center hours, weekdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. View current and past exhibition galleries on the Art of Science website.
