As both a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biological Sciences and Artist in Residence in the Faculty of Fine Arts, Erwin Huebner “intertwines the unseen microscopic world with the art world.” Huebner’s focus has been the intersection of art and science in a wide variety of media. While his scientific research has honed in on cellular biology, as a multimedia and book artist, Huebner has explored the fantastic minuscule structures found in nature. Using such varied materials as microscopes, eggshells and plants, Huebner has designed books and structures inspired by such topics as microscopy, biology and physiology.   

The event will be presented via live stream and will include a Q&A.
