Botanical Garden Education Center

“Balance,” a sculpture by Chapel Hill artist Tinka Jordy, above right, won best in show when the winners of the 21st Annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibit were announced Oct. 4 at a reception at the North Carolina Botanical Garden. “Mandala of Earth and Sky,” by Frank Holder of Greensboro, top left, received a Merit Award.

Also pictured is the garden’s new Education Center, dedicated Oct. 12 and designed as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum building. The center consists of three buildings connected by covered breezeways. Funds to help build the $12.5 million center have so far been contributed by more than 500 individuals and from a UNC student approved fee for renewable energy projects.

‘Learned  in Science, Explored  in Art’

"Dyslexia"

“Cloning: DNA Transfer Technology"










“Is Medicine an Art and a Science?” On Oct. 14 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., the Health Sciences Library will host a panel discussion – followed by a reception – that seeks the answer to that question, based on the exhibit “Learned in Science, Explored in Art.”

The acrylic paintings and collages, now on view through Dec. 30, are by Wolfgang Ritschel, an emeritus professor at the University of Cincinnati. In the collection of 35 works, Ritschel explores the world of medicine through visual art.

Ritschel had formal training in painting at a young age but went on to pursue a successful career in pharmacology and medicine before returning to art full time.

Paintings from the exhibit include “Dyslexia,” top left, and “Cloning: DNA Transfer Technology,” bottom left. www.hsl.unc.edu/ritschel
