Exhibition Opening: Seeing the Invisible at Duke University Libraries
A new exhibition blending art and science opens at Duke Libraries later this week and features the work of Dave and Jane Richardson.
Seeing the Invisible: 50 Years of Macromolecular Visualization
The exhibit opening for Seeing the Invisible: 50 Years of Macromolecular Visualization will take place on Thursday, February 6, from 4 to 6 pm in the Chappell Family Gallery in Perkins Library. Jane and Dave Richardson will offer remarks in the Holsti-Anderson Room beginning at 5 pm with light refreshments available.
This exhibition of drawings, models, and digital imagery explores visualization of the complex shapes of proteins with a surprisingly strong influence from art and analogies. The materials are on loan from the Richardson Lab of Duke University and the Duke Medical Center Archives. Dave and Jane Richardson have spent over five decades researching these molecular building blocks of life and finding ways to help both scientists and other people better understand and appreciate their structures.
The exhibit will remain on display in the Chappell Family Gallery in Perkins Library from February 7-July 21, 2020.
