OtziNEW! This spring we will be offering tours of our new Ötzi the Iceman exibition led by DNALC educators. Hear Ötzi's story and find out what we have learned about Neolithic times from studying his body, clothing, and equipment. Then, move into one of our laboratories to further explore details of this 5,300-year-old murder mystery! Visit our museum page for more information and to purchase tickets.

A BOLD Connection

9:30 am–11:30 am
Ages 10 – 13; chaperone required

The Seattle-based artist Joseph Rossano has partnered with biologists to engage the public around the science of DNA barcoding and how it is being used to catalog the world's vast—and threatened—biodiversity. Rossano's series BOLD is named for the Barcode of Life Data Systems and is currently on display at the DNALC. Come learn about the science of DNA barcoding and how it gives us a deeper understanding of the natural world, explore ways art can be used to bridge the gap between scientists and the general public, and meet the artist!

Participants will:

  • Tour the BOLD exhibit
  • Learn how DNA barcodes can be used to uncover hidden biodiversity
  • Create Joe Rossano-inspired biodiversity art

About the Artist
Joseph Rossano integrates cutting edge technology and science with his art. Rossano engages and challenges the viewer to reflect upon mankind's impact on our planet and its varied ecosystems. Much of Rossano's youth was spent in New York's Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains, formative years that evolved a life focused on creating environmental awareness through Art.
