Ecological Reflections art exhibit at National Science Foundation

We’re pleased to announce that an exhibit featuring artwork from North Temperate Lakes LTER’s “Drawing Water” exhibit, Bonanza Creek LTER’s “In a Time of Change” series,  and Harvard Forest LTER’s artistic residency program are being exhibited at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA.

True to the ideas behind Ecological Reflections, all the works of art are accompanied by an explanation of the science behind the art, as can be seen in the following photo.

More information (including additional pictures) on the NSF exhibit can be found on “Drawing Water’s” Facebook page. The NSF press release mentioning the exhibit can be found here. The Introduction to the art display can be found here.

The show will be on display at NSF for two months. Afterwards, the exhibit will be featured at the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting (August 5-10; 2012, Portland, OR.) It will then travel to the LTER All Scientist Meeting (September 10 – 13, 2012; Estes Park, Colorado.) We will continue to provide updates as this exhibit makes its way across the country.

Needless to say, we are  thrilled with the level of outreach this exhibit provides, and wish to congratulate the artists, scientists, and personnel who made this possible.
