  Artistry & Necessity

June 9—September 3, 2006

Women with an interest in natural science and talent in art faced a challenge in an era when it was unusual for women to have their own careers. Our summer exhibit focuses on a handful of women who defied social convention and pursued their artistic endeavors with individuality making a unique contribution to the art of scientific illustration.

Learn more about the field of scientific illustration today as we highlight the work of four local women in a special exhibit accompanying Artistry & Necessity
