Edged Out: Exhibition of an art-science collaboration


Ashley Cecil has just completed a six-month residency in the RZ lab and will be exhibiting the results of her time with us at the Frick Environmental Center on June 28, 2018. Ashley’s “Edged Out” exhibition consists of a series of paintings and sculptural works about human influence on nature. The artworks specifically focus on the vulnerable state of amphibians, a modern canary in the coal mine offering us a prophetic glance at what lies ahead for all inhabitants of an ailing environment.

The story of Ashley’s residency and the resulting artwork has been featured on the NPR program Allegheny Front (WESA), the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Pittsburgh City Paper.

Come see what our lab’s art-science collaboration has to offer and celebrate the talent of Ashley Cecil at the Frick Environmental Center (open June 28 – August 31, 2018)!
