In light of the upcoming MSU Science Festival, a science art exhibit is being displayed in the halls of Brody Square. Peter Carrington, collections manager for Michigan State University’s Beal Botanical Garden, curated a selection of his illustrations for the exhibit.

The exhibit draws a connection to the ways you can combine an interest in art and interest in science.

“A science teacher in my high school had mentioned that there was such a career as scientific illustration,” said Carrington, who’s been doing science illustration for more than 40 years and been with the plant biology department since 2005. “And, so I began to illustrate my own entomological research. When I had second thoughts about entomology as a career, I moved into scientific illustration.”

The festival will run from April 12-24 and will feature many science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics activities. All events are free and open to the public.
