Exhibit Opening: The Art of Symbiosis

The Art of Symbiosis: A Showcase from the Build of Natural Science Illustrators, Finger Lakes Chapter


The natural world has evolved over billions of years by developing extraordinary relationships between different species and populations. These symbiotic relationships, both cooperative and destructive, demonstrate the importance of long-term partnerships for a healthy ecosystem. From mysterious microscopic organisms to amazing plant life, insects, and large mammals including humans, many species’ survival is interdependent on one another. A new exhibit featuring works by the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators – Finger Lakes Chapter opens in the Mann Library Gallery on September 4. The exhibition brings art and science together to help us understand the importance of interconnectivity and how better-informed decisions will help address the challenges of biodiversity loss, food insecurity and environmental conservation.


A reception in the Mann Gallery will celebrate the exhibit’s opening on Tuesday, September 12, 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. All are welcome.
