Biological Aesthetics Call for Works

Biological Aesthetics:
September 29, 2011 through November 19, 2011

Biological Aesthetics is open to all artists who's work references biological subject matter, traversing the boundary between science and art.  This exhibit seeks to inject our audience with the notion that science and art are not separate ventures, and that inspiration and innovation are closely linked. All mediums will be considered.
