7th Annual Art Scientifique

  • Chris Sorenson Studio

Art Scientifique was created to celebrate the beauty that is often found as the result of scientific inquiry. This unique crossover show represents work not only from artists but scientists as well. The artwork displayed represents the wide and diverse nature of science from Astronomy to Zoology and everything between. This show, now in its seventh year, draws entries from artists all over the United States.

Sponsored by California State University Fresno - College of Science and Mathematics.

Two mosaics by Johannah, "Mitosis/ Cell Division" and "Rods & Cones/ Photoreceptor Cells," were accepted into this month long all-media show.
