News posts

The Museum’s video featuring the exhibition Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies has been selected as the winner of a 2012 Webby Award in the Technology category. The Webby Awards recognize Internet excellence, and members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences choose the winners in each category.

Picturing Science, currently on view in the Akeley Gallery, tells the story of Museum research through spectacular large-format images. Photographs range from multicolored meteorite montages to CT scans of shark skulls, showcasing the importance of visual tools in each of the Museum’s research departments as well as the fusion of science and art.


The winners were announced on May 1, 2012, and will be honored at the 16th annual awards broadcast live from New York City on May 21.
