Congress: Science Sketching Exhibition at the UAB Campus
15 Dec 2016 to 17 Feb 2017
Science Sketching Exhibition at the UAB Campus
During this year, the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) has carried out an outreach project aimed to explain the research carried out in the centre through the art of sketching. For this project, 5 professional sketchers put on the lab coat and gloves and immersed themselves in the plant and farm animal research world. Through their drawings and annotations they explain didactically the different projects and discoveries made by CRAG researches. These drawings and those from the nearly hundred sketching amateurs who visited CRAG on an open house, set up an exhibition, an audiovisual and a book.
The exhibition of the illustrations and photographs of scientific sketching can be visited at the “Sala Teatre” at the UAB Campus (Plaça Cívica, Campus de Bellaterra) from 15th of December 2016 to 31st of March 2017.
The book presentation will be on the 8th of February at 13h at the “Sala Teatre” at the UAB Campus (Plaça Cívica, Campus de Bellaterra).
For the book presentation, four PhD students will present their respective research programs using the sketches of the book. Furthermore, we will count with the presence of the professional sketchers Mercè Godàs and Alejandro Santos, who will talk about the challenge that supposed drawing the scientific concepts.
Two books will be raffled among the assistants!
Entrance is free without previous reservation. Limited seating.
