Join photographers Bob Hesse, Jim Nickelson, and Thibault Roland for a discussion of the intersection between science and photography. Each artist will explain how a knowledge of science influences the creative process and will present samples of his own work. This discussion will be moderated by Emily Hanlin.
Please visit "New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenæum's Prints & Photographs Collections" prior to or following the panel discussion to view work by Hesse, Nickelson, Roland, and other regional artists. The exhibition gallery opens at 9 am and closes at 8 pm on the day of the event.
Registration begins April 3 at 9 am.

The Athenæum's five galleried floors overlook the peaceful Granary Burying Ground, and, as Gamaliel Bradford wrote in 1931, "it is safe to say that [no library] anywhere has more an atmosphere of its own, that none is more conducive to intellectual aspiration and spiritual peace." The building was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1966.
