GNSI-DC Mtg. - Visualizing Science: The Art of Communicating Science

Event Date: 
September 18, 2018 - 3:30pm to 6:00pm

A Special Meeting at a Special Time and Special Location!

Join us on Tuesday, Sept 18th at 3:30 PM for a special GNSI-DC gathering at the Washington DC Headquarters of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for a celebration of Science Illustration!


Ever try to explain what you do as a scientific illustrator or science visualizer? Do you get blank stares? Well, come engage with people who appreciate science and are interested in science collaboration with art as the partner. Join the discussion about examples of science communication from your fellow members.

In coordination with the Guild’s 2018 Special Exhibition, Visualize: Art Revealing Science, the AAAS will host an afternoon colloquium, a panel discussion, about scientific illustration and its role in science communication. The panel consists of four fellow Guild members:  Sally Bensusen, moderating; Alice Tangerini, Diana Marques and Britt Griswold. Also on the panel will be a scientist from the National Museum of Natural History speaking about his experiences working with illustrators. Each participant will speak briefly about their work, followed by a panel discussion and, finally, questions from the audience.

There will be a reception to follow after the colloquium.
