Celebrate creative science and art displays

Don Edler with his work of art titled "Energy"

Wondering what scientific research today’s undergraduates are pursuing? Want to view the next generation of artistic influence? Learn about the latest in both science and the arts at the Celebration of Undergraduate Creativity in the Arts and Sciences Event from 11- 4 pm. Sunday, Jan. 24 at the University of Florida Cultural Plaza.

Undergraduate students from Emory University, Furman University, Louisiana State University, Morehouse College and the University of Florida will participate. The Florida Museum of Natural History and the Harn Museum of Art will feature scientific research posters from disciplines such as chemistry, biology and physics as well as two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. In addition to displaying science posters and art, the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts will host students presenting dance, theatrical and musical performances. Students will be available to discuss their work and answer questions during the event.

Last year’s showcase featured more than 150 art and science undergraduate projects with nearly 1,200 guests. More than 125 science entries and 50 art entries have been accepted for this year’s event.

Don Edler, a UF senior majoring in sculpture, submitted his work for the event. His oil painting, “Energy” depicts CERN’s particle accelerator.

“It seemed like a really good opportunity that meshed well with my work,” Edler said.
