Busboys and Poets welcomes the DC Science Writers Association to the Pearl Bailey Room for A DC Science Café Event!

Picturing Science: The Joys and Concerns of Scientific Image-Making

Science is all about revealing the unseen or the previously undiscerned in the already seen. Depictions of nature date back tens of thousands of years in cave paintings. But the tools and techniques that today’s researchers, designers, and artists now can wield to compose visual representations of scientific discoveries has led to a veritable and always expanding Louvre of gorgeous and telling scientific imagery. This same facility in image-making also has opened up conundrums regarding the boundaries of science, art, and sound presentation. Join a discussion with three professionals who have been wrestling with those boundaries even as they have been expanding them. 

Now in its eighth year, DC Science Cafe is brought to you with support from DC Science Writers Association and encouragement from Busboys and Poets.

Free and open to the public.
