The Art of Science is a traveling exhibition from Museum Victoria. Whether they fly, swim, crawl, wiggle or walk, we are endlessly fascinated and inspired by the creatures of our world. The Art of Science showcases the uncommon beauty produced from 300 years of exacting scientific observation and illustration.
As exploration and science have expanded our horizons across time and space, the ability to capture and communicate the truths held in nature have become increasingly important. Scientific artwork is as important and astonishing today as it was in the 18th century.
In this exquisite exhibition Museum Victoria presents the development of scientific art from the State museum’s seldom seen collection of artworks and rare books, and stunning images produced with microscopes, macro-lenses, and computers.
The Art of Science is on from Saturday, June 01, 2013 – Sunday, July 21, 2013, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the Art Gallery of Ballarat and is in the Mars and Timken Galleries.
