Art Displays

Science parallels art in many ways, not just as a subject matter but also as a source of inspiration. Here at Science World, we are proud to work with local artists who are interested in and inspired by science. Our art displays showcase different works of art within our false creek facility. Recent displays have included art work by Peter Holmes, Sharon Kallis, Michael Hall, Chris Waind and a group of art students from Emily Carr University. We also host an annual display of the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Contest winners.

Vancouver's Wild Neighbours​​​

Vancouver's Wild Neighbours

Connor Stefanison (1991) is a photographer from Burnaby, BC. His photography draws from knowledge gained throughout a life spent largely outdoors. Influenced by his outdoor background, Connor started photographing nature and wildlife in 2008. As the winner of the 2013 BBC/Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Eric Hosking Portfolio Award, his images have been displayed in museums worldwide. In 2014, Connor completed a biology degree in ecology and conservation at Simon Fraser University and plans on becoming a full-time conservation photojournalist.

The images displayed in this exhibition were all taken by Connor in the lower mainland of British Columbia. In fact, if you searched hard enough, finding all of these creatures would only require a trip to North Vancouver! The exhibition will be open until Friday, October 31.

Before checking out the exhibition, read our Q&A interview with Connor where he discusses the ambitions of Art and Science and where the two disciplines align.
