An exhibition of scientific research photographs by Felice Frankel entitled “Visions of Science” will be on display at New York University’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò (located at 24 W. 12th Street) from January 18 through February 17. The event is free and open to the public; gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information the public may call 212.998.3862 or visit www.nyu.edu/pages/casaitaliana.
Felice Frankel is a research scientist at MIT. In this exhibition she displays with creativity and imagination some 30 extraordinary images of research in material science, nanoscience, biomaterials, and chemistry. What emerges is a truly original connection between science and imagination. “I do not consider myself an artist,” Frankel says, “because an artist has a very personal and particular point of view and communicates that part of herself that she wants the world to see. Scientific images can be very beautiful and probably artistic, but they are not art, and art is not science.”
Previously shown in Italy where the exhibition toured such cities as Genoa, Rome, and Milan, “Visions of Science” is supported by Bracco, a worldwide leader in global solutions for diagnostic imaging that is actively engaged in promoting culture, the arts, and scientific research.
