Plant Cell Atlas Art and Science Exhibit
We are hosting portable art and science exhibits at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutes, and Primarily Undergraduate Institutions to raise awareness of the impact that plant research can have on society, the environment, and the economy. These exhibits take the forms of 4 banners centered around a plant science topic per exhibit, which lasts for one semester or 2 quarters. The inaugural exhibit, showing in Fall 2021, features historically significant Black figures in plant science with short biographies of each scientist and art that highlights their research. The second exhibit in Spring 2022, will focus on impressive feats of plant biotechnology such as phytoremediation and vaccine production in plants.
