The Denison Museum is a teaching museum with its primary focus on encouraging students and faculty to incorporate art and cultural heritage objects and visual literacy into their courses. As part of our engagement with the academic curriculum, the Denison Museum creates exhibitions from the permanent collection and by bringing in external works to enhance student classroom experiences.

As humans we share many experiences, most of us have felt rain, heard thunder, or experienced a sunny day. As individuals, we each interpret, share, and communicate this information differently. Nathalie Miebach explores the intersections of art and science by translating scientific data related to meteorology, ecology, and oceanography into woven sculptures, musical scores, and installations. Miebach examines how digital technologies and traditional crafts combine to give a more nuanced expression and understanding of information.
What are the ways we see information across campus? As we think about how we teach and learn, in our classrooms and within our disciplines, how do we share this information? In what ways does this information rely upon its discipline? These are just a few of the questions we hope to explore with this exhibition from the gallery walls, to hallways, classrooms, and concerts across campus.
