Duke University Superfund Research Program (SRP) Center trainee Casey Lindberg helped organized an exhibit highlighting the intersection of science and art called "The Art of a Scientist." Featuring visuals of lab work by 22 scientists, including photographs, micrographs, botanical prints, watercolors, and videos, the exhibit provided an opportunity for the public to explore scientific concepts in an accessible and engaging format.
In addition to featuring images from their lab work, some scientists created artistic representations of their work, and others were paired with local artists to bring their findings to life.
In an interview with WUNC radio, Lindberg told Frank Stasio that the exhibit was a wonderful way to see science and art intersect seamlessly.
Lindberg, who works in the lab of Richard Di Giulio, Ph.D., is exploring how exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other stressors impact fish.
She shared information about her research and the exhibit at a recent Duke SRP Center Community Advisory Board meeting. SRP Health Scientist Administrator Heather Henry, Ph.D., and Health Specialist Brittany Trottier attended the meeting and enjoyed hearing about the science and art exhibit, as well as other efforts by the Duke SRP Center to engage local communities.
