    Art Meets Science in New Perlman Teaching Museum Exhibit

Melding art and science, artist Jessica Rath's "Take Me To The Apple Breeder" explores the seemingly simple apple—genus malus—highlighting the extraordinarily diverse possibilities within a single species of plant. Through ceramic sculptures and photographic portraits of new hybrid trees, Rath's exhibit highlights human intervention in the natural world, inviting mediation on notions of beauty within cultivated, domestic and wild landscapes.
