Science meets art in “The Art of Data” an exhibition now open at DePauw University’s Richard E. Peeler Art Center.

Remaining on view through July 15, it is free and open to all.

Under the guidance of Dan Gurnon, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, and in collaboration with the Peeler Art Center curatorial staff, 11 seniors in DePauw’s Science Research Fellows program have selected representations of scientific data from their respective disciplines for this exhibition.

The images and displays represent data that the students found visually compelling, and data that illustrate important concepts or techniques from the students’ own fields. A short explanation of science behind the image, written for non-scientists, accompanies each submission.

Scientific fields represented include biology, chemistry, physics, geoscience, psychology, computer science and public health.

The galleries at the Richard E. Peeler Art Center are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Sunday 1-5 p.m., and are closed during university breaks and holidays.
