Sharing #SciArt: #AGURocks, #DrawnToGeoscience, & #RhymeYourResearch

Last year we launched two sciart series here on the blog: #DrawnToGeoscience and #AGURocks. The goal was to not only showcase thee amazing ways of communicating science via art but to also show folks the creative process behind the creations; to pull back the curtain to hopefully lower the barrier(s) to entry for those who may have thought about scicomm via art but thought that it was too difficult/they didn’t have the talent. The response was…overwhelming. So many scientists and artists contributed.

We intentionally started small with just two areas to gauge interest. Well, interest was there, so earlier this year we introduced #RhymeYourResearch, modeled after our session at AGU’s annual meeting. We’re already off to a strong start and look forward to even more contributions!

So, you write music, poetry, or create art (of any sort), we want to hear about it. Submit your piece and take us through your creative process today!
