Birgit Pruess Artist Reception
Wed Apr 17, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join us at the Spirit Room in Gallery II for the exhibition of Birgit Pruess’s “Science Inspired Art,” a series of jewelry creations inspired by the diverse, ever evolving, nature of Science. As a trained biologist who sought balance in her life, she found bringing Science into Art did just that while making it less intimidating for the casual appreciator.
Birgit Pruess came to the U.S. from Germany in 1992 to become a scientist. Upon moving into the field of Microbiology she studied how to manipulate the regulatory network of the bacteria to develop novel prevention techniques for bacterial infections. Eventually, seeking a creative outlet, she took up photography and wire/ bead jewelry, that she has slowly developed into her own special niche of science inspired works.
“Science Inspired Art” is made possible through funding in part by North Dakota Council on the Arts and the Arts Partnership.
