How Does Your Garden Grow?The exhibit How Does Your Garden Grow? opens Thursday, October 9th in the Kemper Room on the upper level of Galvin Library. Sponsored by art@iit, this show continues the fascinating series of scientifically-themed art exhibits that have attracted attention all over the city.

From art@iit: “Experience the secret life of plants as captured by artists and scientists using x-ray and microscopic photography, time-lapse video and robot monitors. Whether it is the delicate structures of flowers revealed in Steven Meyer’s x-ray photography, nature’s silent rhythms seen in Roger Hangarter’s Plants in Motion videos, fluorescent plant cells in microscopic images by Michael Davidson, or David Bowen’s growth charting robot, How Does Your Garden Grow? provides a new way of seeing and appreciating the plant life around us.”

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm in the Kemper Room on Thursday, October 9th. The exhibit lasts through November 14th, and is open any time the library is open (library hours). For more on this and other exhibits, see the art@iit site.
