It is also the name of her recent book. From Biosphere 2, built in the '90s (yes, it still exists) to the worlds largest desert at the Henry Doorly Zoo, her images reflect both the incongruity and the educational and research benefits of these "human-created" natural worlds.

Be inspired by this local painter showing at Lakeside Gallery through the month of March. Lakeside Gallery is located in East Duluth at 4431 E Superior Street.

Last month Adam Swanson opened a new show called “Art and Science” at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe in Duluth.

“Art and Science” expands on his common threads of humans, animals and their coexistence in the world.  This new body of work brings in ideas of energy, sustainability, machines and how humans have the ability to change their impact in the world.  Swanson said “The more we learn about our surroundings, where we came from and who we are, the more likely we will thrive in a universe of endless possibilities.”
