Short Description:

This project is an art exhibit displayed in science centers and/or art museums nationwide.  Its purpose is to display and interpret original works by a science illustrator who, in collaboration with a scientist, has visited and documented hydrothermal vent ecosystems via travel in the deep-sea submersible Alvin.  The traveling exhibit was featured at the University of Wisconsin, Madison for most of 2011, and significant leveraging of the exhibit into workshops and a girl's career day called "Expanding Your Horizons" was accomplished at UW.
