UNIVERSITY OF MAINE, HITCHNER HALL

Hitchner Hall, the Microbiology Building at the University of Maine Orono, through the Per Cent for Art Program of the Maine Arts Commission, purchased six monoprints and commissioned six more for a body of work for a permanent installation titled THE AESTHICS OF SCIENCE. The six purchased works included images of monocellular organisms already of interest to the artist, and the six commissioned works were made as part of a collaboration between the artist and the department heads, who contributed imagery from their fields of inquiry.
