Glass Microbiology, Luke Jerram

Description (Dublin Core)

This glass sculpture was created by an artist from the United Kingdom, commissioned by a “university in America to reflect their current and future research, learning in health, and its focus on solving global challenges.” This item shows how art has been part of the pandemic experience as a teaching tool. The experience of visual art can convey thoughts, emotions, trigger feelings and conversations, and is an important part of exploring and understanding how people are navigating the pandemic. This piece is part of a larger collection of virus sculptures, which have been featured in medical journals, and displayed in museum collections around the world.
