Join us for the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibition, which makes a beautiful case for the importance of data visualization.
The Places & Spaces exhibition showcases the visualization of complex data in innovative and beautiful formats, using groundbreaking methods for making sense of large streams of data. Each year new visualizations are added, culled from international and interdisciplinary submissions. Four new macroscopes have been chosen to travel with the exhibition, and will make their debut at Vanderbilt University.
These four macroscopes use data that varies tremendously in terms of subject matter and method of collection: city smells found on social media, a library collection mapped in time and space, institutional partnerships revealed through publications, and ship locations tracked by satellite. However, they all present data visually to make new perspectives possible.
The macroscopes will join the 100 maps of science, sculpture, and hands on activities that currently comprise the exhibition. The exhibition will be on display in the Central Library, Sarratt Student Center, Rand Hall, and the Wond'ry.
The Vanderbilt Child & Family Center will host its 11th annual Summer Camp Fair on Friday, February 24, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Light Hall, North Lobby.

The Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture program at Vanderbilt Divinity School is proud to host “Invictus: Twenty Works Celebrating African Americans’ Pursuit of Freedom and Will to Survive.” This exhibition will be open to the public free of charge beginning with its opening reception on Thursday, February 2nd (3-7 PM) and continuing through Friday, February 24th. The Art Room gallery is room G-20 on the ground floor of the Divinity School. For daily gallery hours please see www.religionandarts.com. The exhibition’s closing reception will take place on February 22nd from noon-2pm at the Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center on the Vanderbilt Campus.
“Invictus: Twenty Works Celebrating African Americans’ Pursuit of Freedom and Will to Survive”was curated by Yollette T. Jones (Associate Dean, College of Arts and Science) and organized by student Maya T. King (Junior, College of Arts and Science). Inspired by her coursework in African American history, King envisioned a visual art exhibition that would put “positive and uplifting images of African Americans in the public view.” The exhibition examines artists’ portrayals of African American struggle and survival in the United States beginning with the documentation of the death of Crispus Attucks at the Boston Massacre in 1770. On display are notable works by John Biggers, Elizabeth Catlett, John Wilson, Charles White, and others. Collectively, these images create a venue wherein the visions of great artists tell the story of black resolve in the face of social and economic difficulties.
The exhibition is sponsored by Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture Program of Vanderbilt Divinity School; co-sponsored by Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center, Office of the Dean of Students, College of Arts & Science, Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
