IN its efforts to enhance the art scene through educational, artistic and scientific endeavours, the Cultural Village Foundation-Katara, in collaboration with the Youth Hobbies Center and Qatar University, hosted an exhibition titled 'Art of Science', in Doha on Monday.
The exhibition was opened in the presence of the Deputy General Manager and Head of Operations of Katara, Ahmad al Sayed, media personnel and educational representatives at the Youth Hobbies Center.
The display, consisting of 44 photographs, explores the interplay and links between science and art, and presents an artistic interpretation of the spirit of scientific inquiry. The exhibition tastefully depicts the beauty of science as experienced by students, researchers and scientists working in scientific labs in schools and research institutions.
By doing so, the display encourages students to enjoy the subject of science, rather than studying it purely to pass exams and get grades. The photographs were captured in schools across the country and in the Centre of Advanced Materials (CAM) at Qatar University.
The 2017 Art of Science exhibition comes under an educational programme called Al-Bairaq. Through Al-Bairaq, students are selected, trained, and mentored to be research assistants at Qatar University.
