The Art of Science: Images from the Institute for Genomic Biology 2.0 exhibits some of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign research addressing significant problems in the environment, health, and energy use and production. Research instrumentation in the Core Facilities at the Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) provides state-of-the-art resources for biological microscopy and image analysis for faculty and students from across campus and to scientists in Research Park. This exhibit illustrates the IGB's commitment to scientific discovery and the collaborative spirit that makes it all possible.
The idea of this exhibition originated from a Champaign business man, Doug Nelson from BodyWork Associates (link to http://www.bodyworkassociates.com/), who had a vision that Science is Art. Mr. Nelson wanted to help bridge the community with the University through an art exhibit. He continues to support public engagement and outreach efforts at the IGB with the community. We appreciate Indi Go Gallery (link to http://www.indi-go-art.com/) enriching the Champaign-Urbana community by showcasing the work of artists who reach beyond the boundaries of the mainstream.
