The Art Behind Science Series- Gallery Reception

8:00pm- Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

We tend to think of science and art as separate entities from each other in our daily lives. However, when we step back to appreciate the beauty of our world and the mechanisms under which the universe operates, we begin to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day. “The Art Behind Science Series” will work to promote the idea that art can be used to express and acknowledge the aesthetic qualities of science and our world.
Bill Snyder, the opening exhibit in the series, is an
astrophotographer from Pittsburgh, PA. Using advanced telescopic and photographic equipment, Bill captures images of “galaxies far, far away” for our viewing pleasure here on Earth.

Pitt Program Council invites you to join in the conversation about the relationship between science and art at the opening reception of the series on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, from 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM in the Jazz Hall of Fame outside of the Conney M. Kimbo Art Gallery in the William Pitt Union. Bill Snyder and other artists from the upcoming series will be in attendance to discuss their work and talk with students. Refreshments will be provided.
No tickets required, free for Pitt undergraduate students
