Archbold Biological Station – Timeless: Art, Science and Nature

February 10 – March 29, 2024 

At Archbold Biological Station, scientists and artists work in tandem on long-term ecological and environmental studies. In the living laboratory/studio that is Archbold, they are building a picture of Florida’s ancient lands and its inhabitants over time. While science relies on facts, and art on imagination, the two approaches can merge, as this exhibition of works created at Archbold suggests. Included are images by scientists who leverage their artistic skills to further their research, and compositions by artists who access scientific knowledge in their aesthetic investigations. Media include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, music, video, and installation by Dustin Angell, Reed Bowman, Mark Deyrup, Mollie Doctrow, Michele Oka Doner, Maria Eisner, Thomas Eisner, Evelyn Gaiser, Deborah Mitchell, and Kristy Sullivan. This exhibit is made possible by the generous support of Bradley S. and Marta E. Pollitt and Family.
