JOSEPH GREGORY ROSSANO'S WHITEWASHED
Continues through July 15
Through this powerful exhibition, multi-media artist and naturalist Joseph Gregory explores how scientific truths have been systematically "whitewashed" by a culture focused on exclusively human needs.
Whitewashed features Rossano's interactive specimen boxes and video projections in collaboration with MacArthur Fellow Daniel Janzen and other leading scientists. The exhibition brings together new developments in art and science through a pioneering display of kinetic sculptures and video projections featuring QR coded links to commissioned essays by leading researchers in evolutionary biology. Rossano's installations at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma and San Diego Natural History Museum have received widespread acclaim. The exhibit also includes is the 1972 animated short The Last of the Curlews by nature writer Fred Bodsworth.
This event is open to the public. Free admission and parking.
Exhibition runs through July 15, 2013; M-F 9-5 pm or by appointment.
