    Paul Peck Center Gallery 32nd & Market Philadelphia, PA 19104

    Though widely known for innovation, entrepreneurship and civic engagement, Drexel has been a serious collecting institution from its very inception in 1891. In fact, it was the University’s forward thinking founder AJ Drexel, who provided the inspiration and resources to establish The Drexel Collection. The original collection grew and evolved over the years and now the University holds a series of impressive collections including the internationally renowned Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, The Robert and Penny Fox Historic Costume Collection as well as The Legacy Center, which documents the role of women in American medicine, and the Archives at Hagerty Library.

  • NanoArtography

    Friday, March 15, 2019

    8:00 AM-7:00 PM

    Main Building, 3rd Floor, Rincliffe Gallery

    • Everyone

    Exhibition from December 14, 2018 through March 15, 2019. By looking at materials under a microscope, scientists can understand how things work at very small scales and even at the atomic level. Sometimes, researchers see a scientific image that resembles a piece of art or has a beautiful feature. These images are often captured using electron microscopes and are in gray-scale. Scientists will then colorize the images using photo editing software to emphasize the unique features captured at the nanoscale. All of the images in this exhibition are from the A. J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute NanoArtography Competition (established in 2016 by Babak Anasori, PhD) an international competition which helps broaden the public’s understanding of the world at the atomic level and brings attention to Drexel’s groundbreaking materials science research.
