Art of Science Reception and Awards

Free Event

In science, as in art, the practitioner pursues moments of discovery when observations become greater than the sum of their parts and begin to reveal an untold story. The Art of Science initiative recognizes the creative and experimental nature of science and challenges UCSB researchers to visually communicate the beauty inherent to scientific investigations. Visualizing these discoveries connects scientists, artists, and the community at large. The Art of Science initiative encourages researchers to express the joy of scientific discovery through aesthetics.

Join us in our 4th annual event to capture the imagination and share the beauty of science through photographs and images that describe some aspect of research; whether it be spectroscopic images of a new material, data from a series of simulations, photos of a device or instrument, or some other aspect of research captured visually.
