Participating artists were invited to create an imaginative response ‘just beyond the edge of sight’ inspired by these enduring philosophical and scientific questions. Artists were assigned selected scientific books held in the John Martin Rare Book Room or Special Collections at the University of Iowa Libraries. On exhibit are the art works that were created alongside a selection of the scientific books used as inspiration. 

Join us for a reception on Friday, November 13th from 3:00-5:00pm
