Gazing Deeply: The Art and Science of Mammoth Cave


What do scientists and artists do?

Why are both arts and sciences vital to a well-rounded education in the 21st century?

How can creative human endeavors inspire us to act in support of our home planet?

Gazing Deeply explores these questions, showcasing how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world. 

The exhibition will tell a story about the work of scientists and artists in connection to Mammoth Cave. This story brings the vital connection between arts and sciences together to showcase how each is, independently and collaboratively, creative human endeavors that help us better understand and protect our world. This exhibition is curated in partnership with Dr. Chris Groves (Geology) and Julie Schuck (Art).
