Five Tables of Cal Scientists’ Takes on Art


Drop by our art study centers on Free First Thursday for an up-close look at treasures from the BAMPFA collections, laid out on the five tables in the seminar area. UC Berkeley scientists give us their take on a nonrandom selection of art from our collections. Works on view might include: Harold Edgerton’s multiflash image of a tennis serve; kites flying high over Mt. Fuji in Hokusai’s simultaneously soaring and gravity-bound ukiyo-e print; Richard Misrach’s long-exposure night view of the temple and star tracks at Sounion, Greece; glorious close-ups of flowers in photos by Papo Colo and Marion Brenner; nineteenth-century cabinet cards of Thomas Henry Huxley, “Darwin’s Bulldog,” and much more.
