Science Stories is a unique project that brings together Pacific Northwest scientists and book artists to create engaging and unique artists’ books that offer new ways to interpret science and to tell a story. We have divided the Science Stories projects into broad topics: water, ice, mountains, flora, fauna, and human health. The website includes videos about each scientists’ research as well as information, images, and videos about each artist’s book project. The in-person exhibition of Science Stories runs from October 15, 2021, to January 14, 2022, at the Collins Memorial Library at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. Current public viewing hours are Monday-Friday 8 am to 5 pm. Check the Collins Library Website to confirm the viewing hours https://www2.pugetsound.edu/academics/academic-resources/collins-memorial-library/.
