Science helps us understand our world, but art helps us understand science.
This exhibit features illustrations and models from a wide range of scientific fields, as well as tools and techniques artists use to help explain complex scientific information. From insects to ink, dinosaurs to digital imaging, art and science are more closely linked than you might have thought! This exhibit is also on display in the Lower Level Display Cases of the Downtown Library.
The exhibit runs through July 22.
This unique nature photography exhibit by Gale Nobes, Michigan artist and former chairman of the Muskegon River Watershed Council, consists of twenty-five black and white infrared photographs. Enjoy these stunning images of the beaches, dunes, woodlands, and weather that make up the Lake Michigan environs, with special emphasis on the rugged, wind-swept beauty of the dunes. Many of these photos also focus on the subtle and intricate textures and patterns caused by the collaboration of wind, water, sand, and time.
Nobes’ black and white infrared photography creates images that are at once surreal and evocative of the beauty of the natural world. Digital infrared photography allows him to revisit the expected view of nature, quite literally, in another light.
The exhibit runs through July 27th.
