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.”
This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and generously supported by the Harrington Gallery Fund.
Curated by Michael Dietrich, Professor of Biology / Nancy Anderson, Humanities Institute / Katherine W. Hart, Senior Curator of Collections and Barbara C. & Harvey P. Hood 1918 Curator of Academic Programming
