SSEC’s graphic artist, Sofia Elian, is featured in a new Smithsonian American Art Museum Exhibit. The “Alexander von Humboldt and the United States: Art, Nature, and Culture” exhibition places American art squarely in the center of a conversation about Humboldt’s lasting influence on the way we think about our relationship to the natural world.
Over a dozen experts from the Smithsonian Institution whose work could be linked back to Humboldt were featured in the exhibition. Much like the explorer, Elian’s graphic designs and art work at the Smithsonian Science Education Center surrounds expressing scientific concepts through illustrations.
