Nikon Small World Exhibition

Special Event
Friday, Jan. 31, 2020 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Wistar Institute is hosting a special exhibition of the 20 winning images from the 2019 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. The collection offers a glimpse into a world that most have never seen - the intersection of art and science as viewed through the lens of a microscope. Wistar is the only venue in the region to showcase the exhibition.

This event is free and open to the public. You can view the exhibition at Wistar Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., February 3 to April 10, 2020.
