Merging Art and Science September 17th, 2015
Recently the DBG had the pleasure of hosting Nashville, TN based artist Carla Ciuffo for a collaboration with our Nanofibers team, resulting in a new traveling museum exhibit titled “Nano . Stasis” The objective of this multimedia exhibition is to unify a stunning advance in science with its artistic counterpart, in effect emphasizing how creativity, beauty and science are truly intertwined.
