Artists whose work reflects the intersection of science, art and the research interests of scientists at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory are invited to apply to participate in its third annual “Art Meets Science” exhibit from July 1 through Sept. 30.
Artists with work in any medium are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due by March 15. The first 25 artists to apply whose work reflects the exhibition’s objectives will be accepted into the exhibition. Each artist will be asked to provide up to four pieces of work, ready to hang or display.
The exhibit will be curated by Annette Carvajal from the Mount Desert organization Art in Public Spaces LLC, who said that the exhibit will be about “exploring ideas, understanding process, and being open to possibility in the worlds of both science and art.”
