Past Exhibitions

Life Forms

Visual Lessons in Biology

April 15, 2006, through June 16, 2006

Life Forms explored the boundary between art and science with anatomical atlases, student drawings, wax and plaster sculptures, films and diagrams of cellular processes, and the National Institute of Health’s Visible Human Project. The exhibition coincided with Dartmouth’s spring 2006 Humanities Institute, “Visual Pedagogy and Culture in the Life Sciences.”

Form and Presence
