Microscopy: an art? Yes, if it is pop. Pop Microscopy. Bridging Art and Science towards the Future: A Travelling Show at the University of Florida, June 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018 as a part of Legacies of Leonardo: Celebrating 500 Years of Inquiry


Microscopy, as a technique in scientific investigation, had a key role in uncovering the intrinsic beauty of nature, leading some to propose that microscopy could be described as an art or even an art form. But is microscopy, which is essentially for scientific data acquisition and analysis, really an art?

From June 1st to the end of 2018, Pop Microscopy. Bridging Art and Science towards the Future will become a traveling exhibit. Through beautiful images of cells, molecules, organs and tissues, this show will bring art and science together to uncover Mother Nature’s deepest and most beautiful secrets. You are invited to explore the intrinsic beauty of nature all around campus.

In the next six months, Pop Microscopy will rotate amongst these locations:
