On December 11th there will be an art science and technology art show titled ORGANISM. This is a two part show. One part will have artworks created by both artists and scientists.  Participating scientists include ; Ciera Martinez, Anna Davidson , Brad Townsly, Dan Chitwood and Diane Ullman. Some Artists include: Daniel Brickman, May Wilson, Evan Clayburg, Daniel Mendoza, Sarah Julig, Dylan Wright, Donna Billick and Emily Schleiner.
Part two of the show will feature students form the Entomology 1 class which is housed in the Art Science Fusion program at UC Davis. These fifteen students have been writing curious tales about insects and illustrating those stories through their art pieces. The concept behind their art pieces is based on Cabinets of curiosities, a pre-linneaus collection of curiosities that were made popular among the affluent in 14th and 15th century Europe.
During this show you will experience glow in-the-dark organisms, art made of fungus, bones, and snakes…… large scale installation, live performance, sound art and tales about insects that are so curious they are almost unbelievable!
