Visualizing the Cosmos

Exhibit by Pierce Williams,
Posner Center intern
Spring 2017

This exhibit considers strategies shared by the arts, humanities, and sciences for visualizing invisible things in order to better understand them. Reaching back to Galileo’s sunspot engravings from the early seventeenth century, and forward to the aesthetic choices of scientists rendering images from the Hubble Space Telescope, the exhibit showcases visualizations in print, pixel and paint by great minds of the last five hundred years.

Posner Center gallery and exhibits are open Monday-Friday from 1 to 4 p.m., except holidays and during designated VIP events.
