SciArt, where science, art and communication collide, is looking for submissions. Who knows? You might win some cash.
For the past five years, the LU SciArt Exhibition has featured as part of Laurentian University’s Research Week. This year, they are working with students and researchers across the LU campus, as well as community groups and artists throughout Sudbury, to bring the sixth annual LU SciArt Exhibition to life.
The LU SciArt Exhibition challenges students, artists, and researchers alike to examine their work from new perspectives. Researchers are asked to express their ideas using artistic media, while artists are challenged to use their chosen medium to represent scientific concepts in unique and beautiful ways. In addition, each year local schools create innovative SciArt pieces that assist students to better understand their curriculum, changing the way they see science and research for the rest of their lives.
This year, a goal of the LU SciArt Exhibition is to feature pieces that show the connection between all fields of research and art. In past exhibitions, researchers in traditional science fields such as biology, chemistry, and engineering have been featured, alongside many amazing pieces from researchers in social sciences and humanities. This year, we hope to further highlight research in these fields, and increase engagement with researchers that don’t traditionally feel represented by science.
Following the exhibition at Laurentian, the LU SciArt exhibition will be on display at Science North from March 25-April 5. This is an amazing opportunity to showcase SciArt to a wider audience, and allows the work of talented artists and researchers to be seen by thousands of people in our community.
