From the lab to the lecture hall, creativity abounds on campus. As part of Pitt’s Year of Creativity, this year’s Science as Art celebrates creativity hidden in plain sight. Under the microscope, everyday items become fascinating, artistic images. But, for each image, it’s up to you to guess what, exactly, is being shown. Is it a microscopic view of an animal, vegetable, or mineral? Or none of these? The longstanding Science as Art exhibit, curated by Donna Stolz, PhD, and Jonathan Franks, MS, annually showcases works that blend the not-so-disparate fields of art and science. For the first time, the exhibit takes the form of an interactive competition via an online quiz open to all Science participants. So take your best guess—there’s even a prize in store if you have the most correct answers.
NOTE: The exhibit will be on display at Science 2018 from 9 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 17 to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18.
