Ilus Art Presents Life Science Images to San Diego International Airport
Ilus Art, a company developing artwork from cellular images captured in the laboratory, announced today its participation in the San Diego International Airport's Life Science Exhibit, opening June 4, 2014.
The special exhibition entitled, "Taking Art to the Cellular Level", will shine a light on the research taking place at companies and research institutes in the Southern California area. San Diego has some of the brightest minds in regenerative medicine, and has long been recognized as a hub for biotechnology and life science research. The exhibit will be displayed in Terminal 2, which will welcome travelers from around the world, including those attending the BIO International Convention taking place in San Diego, June 23-26, 2014.
"Constance White, the Art Program Manager at the San Diego Airport, has a wonderful vision for the exhibit and we are excited to see it come to life," said Janet Hubka, CEO of Ilus Art. "Ilus was honored to assist Biocom with this project by using our unique printing technology to infuse all 20 images onto metal, creating beautiful and luminescent pictures."
Ilus is not only an art company, but is also dedicated to life science education and helping the public learn about the science behind these cellular images. The images are derived from vital research, in some cases documenting the curing or slowing the progression of disease.
"We are thrilled to be hosting information about Biocom and the exhibit on our website, ilusart.com," said Hubka. "Through the site, visitors can learn about the scientists behind these unique images, their company or institute, and the focus of their lab. Display's like this allow the public to see the beauty of the images, which will hopefully inspire them to learn more about the research behind them."
Ilus is honored to work with the many people involved in the project and wants to thank Arlene Arreola and Jennifer Landress from Biocom, Constance White, Lauren Lockhart and Karla Blancas from the San Diego International Airport, and Wendell Eckholm and Dustin Gilmore of Artworks San Diego.
