Shown in “Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity”

NS Philip and Patricia Frost Science Museum Miami will host two new exhibits on campus on Friday, October 8. Guests learn about the skin characteristics of various organisms and “Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity, presented by the Miami Cancer Institute of Baptist Health.” Bilingual multisensory exhibit commemorates the East Coast premiere at Frost Science. “” X-ray Vision: Upside Down Fish Exhibits at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution’s Travel Exhibition Service (SITES) feature spectacular X-ray prints that reveal the internal structure of different types of fish, many of them are presented in the museum’s aquarium. .. Both exhibitions will be on display at Frost Science until April 3, 2022.

In Baptist Health’s Miami Cancer Institute’s Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity, guests explore the ever-evolving science of the skin as a complex organ and between living things and their environment. Examine it again as a living interface. A culturally important characteristic that shapes the way humans see, recognize and interact with others in the modern world.

In X-ray Vision: Inside the Fish, visitors explore the x-rays of the Smithsonian’s National Fish Collection. It represents over 70% of the world’s fish specimens and is the largest and most diverse collection of fish in the world. The images in the National Collection were created for research purposes, but the striking images show a natural fusion of science and art, a visual representation of the evolution of fish.

During the exhibition, 40 black and white digital prints of various types of fish are on display. Arranged in evolutionary order, these x-rays travel the long evolutionary stream of fish, allowing Smithsonians and other scientists to study fish skeletons without changing specimens, allowing scientists to include fish. A diversity that makes it easy to create lifelike images. Click here for more information.

“X-ray Vision: Inside Out of the Fish” is sponsored by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution Travel Exhibition Service (SITES). It was inspired by the book Ichthyo: The Architecture of Fish by Stephanie Kammer and Deborah Klochko (Chronicle Books related to the Smithsonian Institution, 2008).
