About the Artwork

The objects grouped together here were donated in the 1960s and 1970s to the institutional precursor of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery. Their relocation to the Science Complex is part of an initiative to make available works from that collection to select locations throughout Concordia. Such endeavors within a university environment allow for, and encourage, a crossover of knowledge. The history of the relationship between the arts and the sciences is a rich one of particular significance today when so many artists are fascinated with scientific research and models.
