Artown Photography Exhibit & Open House

July 20, 2023 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Photo from our photography competition of wildfire arial view.

During Artown we are celebrating the winners of DRI’s annual photography competition and inviting the community to attend this free event for science enthusiasts of all ages. Our scientists and staff travel the globe conducting their research. Along their journeys, they return with more than just data and samples – they capture striking snapshots of the places they explore, from the desolate deserts of Nevada to the intricate depths of a microscope.  We will also be hosting an open house during this time with free lab tours on a first-come, first-served basis and drone demonstration in the courtyard. Come and check out all of the great work that our scientists are doing. This event is made possible, in part, with support from the Edna B. and Bruno Benna Foundation.
