BHC celebrates new Science Art Gallery

Steve Spivey, chair of the Black Hawk College East Foundation, speaking at the Science Art Gallery Dedication and Reception.

Black Hawk College celebrated its new Science Art Gallery at the East Campus with an April 11 reception and dedication.

The gallery – located in the Student Science Center in Building B – features eight pieces of art.

All of the paintings and photographs are science-themed, including an abstract portrait of rusted steel and images of rhinoviruses, streptococcus pyogenes bacteria, a vitamin C crystal and an X-ray of a cactus.

The purchase of the artwork was made possible by employees and friends of the BHC East Campus through the e4e (Employees for Education) Employee Giving Campaign.

The event was hosted by the e4e Committee and the Black Hawk College East Foundation.
