A new exhibit on display at the Wond’ry honors the discoveries of Vanderbilt’s Nobel laureates by translating them into beautiful works of art.
Vanderbilt’s Nobel Laureates: A Visual Tribute to Discovery and Innovation has been installed on the second floor of the Wond’ry at the Innovation Pavilion, adjacent to the new Engineering and Science Building. The exhibit’s designer is Robert Lavieri, a project manager in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
“My goal in this exhibit is to represent the theme of an entire lifetime of work in a single piece of art for each of Vanderbilt’s Nobel laureates,” says Lavieri. “In general, part of my mission is to provide a much wider audience (than just scientists) the ability to see and appreciate the wonders in nature that can’t be seen with the naked eye.”
Six individuals associated with Vanderbilt are Nobel laureates, each of whom is represented by an image in Lavieri’s exhibit:
The exhibit will remain installed at the Wond’ry at least through the end of the calendar year. Learn more about Lavieri here. Download the exhibit’s poster, with full explanations of each image and how they relate to each Nobel laureate, here: Robert Lavieri-Nobel laureates exhibit poster.
