Pick up a copy of this year's Chicago Artists Month catalogue to read up on Josh Kurutz, PhD. Kurutz is a scientist and featured artist in the brochure, included for his involvement in the upcoming Science in Art exhibition at the University of Chicago this October.

Science in Art is a juried exhibition highlighting the visual work of scientists from the U of Chicago, Argonne and Fermi Labs, and work by Chicago artists whose subject is science. The exhibition was developed to help educate and engage the public in the processes, challenges, and benefits of science and technology, and as a vehicle for connecting scientists and non-scientists.
