A colorful new art installation by Jim Cogswell titled “Unseen Worlds” wraps around the glass exterior of the University of Michigan Biological Sciences Building and Museum of Natural History
The mural explores the world of microorganisms and has been in the making for more than three years.
Cogswell, a professor at U-M’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, said the concept of the project was to reflect on the exterior of the building what happens inside its walls.
“Our hope is that visitors will be drawn to these delightful, human-scale microorganisms and want to discover how these unseen elements impact our world,” museum director Amy Harris said in a statement. “This installation serves as an invitation to discovery.”
The exhibition will be on view through 2023.
