Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve discovered some fun new resources. The Public Art in Chicago blog focuses on our city’s local sculpture, with side trips into all the other art you can see without going inside. Wunderkammer is a journal of art inspired by the environment.
Somehow we missed this when it first came out: the Brainbow neuron-staining technique is gorgeous and useful. Also gorgeous and useful: advanced 3D printers that produce artificial insect wings. And finally, on this week’s topic of museums and conservation, remarkable conservation work on a dress made with 1000 beetle wings.
