CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Artistic interpretations of science can be seen in a number of locations throughout the University of Northern Iowa's Rod Library through the month of April. The displays are a collaboration among UNI professors in the College of Natural Sciences and Arts in April, UNI's month-long celebration of arts and culture.
In the glass display case near the main library entrance, are displays portraying Art in Mathematics. 'Geometric designs in quilts,' is three quilts, including one based on the pythagorean theorum, assembled by Catherine Miller, assistant professor of mathematics, and 'Polyhedra constructs,' was assembled by Jason Robando, assistant professor of mathematics, and created by his students.
Another display, on the third level, includes more than 15 examples of 'Biological Illustration,' featuring the pointillism illustrations of animals, people and landscapes by Jeff Tamplin, assistant professor of biology.
Art in the Earth Sciences is depicted in a four level photographic display located on the east exterior walls of the general stairwell, featuring 'Geology-Philomicrographs, crystal and mineral photographs,' on the lower level; 'Topographic earth surface views' on the second level; 'Meteorology-views of the clouds and sky' on the third level; and 'Astronomy-Hubble telescope views of heavenly bodies' on the fourth level.
