Working together is central to the very nature of the Institute for Genomic Biology and can be seen in its team-based approach to research, history and many successes. Another important part of the IGB’s mission is to forge stronger connections between science and society. The idea of the Art of Science exhibition originated from a Champaign businessman, Doug Nelson from BodyWork Associates, who had a vision that science is art. Mr. Nelson wanted to help bridge the community with the university through an art exhibit. Images from previous exhibitions are currently on display at Champaign’s Willard Airport and both Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway International Airports.
