Radar Love - ASU Spring 2015 Exhibition Opening post

Had five of my photos on display at the “Bugs, Birds, Beasts and Blooms” during the ASU Spring 2015 Exhibition Opening. The exhibit is from January 12th thru May 9th, 2015, 8am to 5pm daily, except for holidays. Guided tours may be arranged by contacting carrie.tovar@asu.edu. Artwork for the exhibit is arranged on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

Exhibit Theme
Throughout history artists, scientists, and amateurs have examined the world around them and have recorded their observations in a variety of ways. The natural world can engage our senses and imaginations as well as be endlessly fascinating and full of wonders. Our surroundings are filled with an abundance of living things like bright flowers and plants, colorful birds, and intriguing insects.

The exhibit is located at the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus, University Center Building, 411 N Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85004.
