Showcasing the Comparative Anatomy Illustration course work of Winthrop University students, THE ART & SCIENCE OF ILLUSTRATION is the culmination of imaginative renderings reflecting both artistic and scientific influences. Under the guidance of Professor David Brown, the exhibition features the students’ field sketches and illustrations inspired by their explorative studies of mammalian and human anatomy observed while at the Museum of York County’s Naturalist Center.
