A new exhibition, Rocks of Interest to a Young Geologist is displayed at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. The photographs in this exhibition were taken by Ruth Beer, a Vancouver-based artist, researcher and educator at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. The images engage with ideas inspired by geological rock samples.
In addition, Elspeth Barnes, Curator of the UBC Pacific Museum of the Dept. of Earth of the Ocean Sciences, has organized a display of rocks and minerals from the museum’s collection to accompany the exhibition.
