The Princeton’s Art of Science 2014 exhibition showcases images of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. These images were chosen from more than 250 submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff, and alumni representing more than 25 different departments at PrincetonUniversity. They span research topics including fruit fly gestation, tropical fungi, silicon crystals in computer chips, Tanzanian wildebeest, and crystallized Vitamin C. Free with NYSCI admission.
