Beginning Wednesday, October 8, RIT's William Harris Gallery will host "Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science" on the third floor of RIT's Frank E. Gannett Hall. The exhibition is part of a collaborative photographic art piece and book project led by Norman Barker and Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue, featuring images from more than 60 medical science professionals. "Hidden Beauty" seeks to examine how the technical and aesthetic abilities of scientific photographers are enhancing and expanding the field of medical science. Advanced imaging technologies, like electron microscopy scans and spectral karyotyping, will feature prominently in the exhibition along with other images used by medical professionals every day to diagnose disease and illness.
The exhibition is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will end on Friday, October 31. Exhibition co-curator and science photographer Norman Barker will host a talk at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 15, in the auditorium of RIT's Chester F. Carlson Center, followed by an open reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gallery at Gannett Hall. The exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information, call (585)475-2884.
