Art of Science Travels to Paris, France
A new and improved version of the RCSB PDB's exhibit will be on display in Paris, France at the end of May. The Art of Science uses the context of an art exhibit to introduce audiences new and old to to the beauty of the biomacromolecular structures and biology available in the PDB.
The two shows will be open to the public:
- May 19 - May 23: Villejuif Bio Park. RSVP to attend the opening reception on Monday, May 19th at 6:00pm.
- May 24: Sup'Biotech Open House
Since its beginnings in an art gallery at Rutgers University, the show has been hosted around the world including Texas A&M University, EMBL-Hamburg, Germany; University of Wisconsin-Madison; California State University, Fullerton; Purdue University; and Hyderabad, India. The exhibit toured mostly between 2002-2007, with a recent iteration in Egypt in 2013.
The current exhibit includes images from the original Art of Science show along with new works inspired by important Molecule of the Month topics, molecular artist Irving Geis, and the International Year of Crystallography.
This event is curated by Christine Zardecki and Maria Voigt (RCSB PDB) and coordinated by Julien Muzard (Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers). Please contact Dr. Muzard with any local questions.
Upcoming events for the Art of Science are scheduled for the end of 2014 at McPherson College in Kansas and at the Delbarton School in New Jersey. For additional details, please contact email@example.com.
