2018 Art in STEM Exhibition

4th Art in STEM Exhibition officially took place on March 29th, 2018 in Dirac Library at 5 pm. This year GWIS received a total of 36 pieces of beautiful art work submitted by both graduate and undergraduate students across all STEM fields (11 departments).

During the opening night,  all contestants and judges were invited to participate our event. We selected top two winners based on their judged scores in Scientific and Artistic value, and a crowd voted favorate. Winners will each receive a $25 check from the graduate school.

This year’s winners are EOAS graduate student Megan Behnke (Best Scientific Impact), Chemistry graduate student Pamela Knoll (Best Artistic Value), and Physics graduate student Tianhan Liu (People’s Choice). We also selected three finalists; Chemistry undergraduate student Lourdes Guerro, Chemistry graduate student Jamie Wang and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering graduate student Madhuparna Roy. Congratulations to all the winners!

The inaugural Art in STEM Exhibition was founded by former GWIS president Dr. Jessica Martinez in 2014. All the art pieces displayed during the evnet were submitted by our own FSU student researchers from all STEM field. The exhibition opening night was very effective in bringing scientists from diferent research areas together to learn about each other’s work. The art work displayed on the wall was a great catalyst to start converstaion amonst all the participants.  The event became an annual collaboration between Dirac Library and GWIS following the success of our first exhibit. Innitially sponsored by the American Society of Biology (ASCB), the Graduate School and Congress of Graduate Students (COGS) at FSU kindly provided the financial support for the 2015-2018 exhibitions.

All 36 art pieces will be on display in Dirac Library until Spring 2019.
