Inside IBB's First Summer Art Show
Jul 31, 2023 —
On Thursday, July 27, the Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) held a highly anticipated summer art show. Co-hosted by IBB and BBUGS, the Bioengineering and Bioscience Unified Graduate Students, the art show featured over 70 submissions from members of the broader IBB community.
The art show proved to be a summer highlight and source of excitement in the community. Participants showcased their creative talents through diverse mediums ranging from oil paintings to photography and blues music. More than 350 attendees admired the art pieces and mingled while enjoying refreshments.
"The intention of the IBB Art Show was to bring the IBB and Georgia Tech communities together for a fun event to highlight the fantastic talents of our faculty, staff, and trainees," said IBB Executive Director Andrés J. García. "I was blown away at the tremendous response, beautiful and creative works of art, and fellowship that we shared in this special event."
A panel of judges selected the winners and attendees voted for a fan favorite award. García presented awards to the competition's winners, listed below. The winning submissions will be displayed at IBB.
