NORMAN — The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History and the University of Oklahoma Sutton Lecture Series invites the public to “Humanizing Science: Lessons Learned from Artists,” a complimentary lecture from biologist Jamie Gillooly of the University of Florida, at 7 p.m. Thursday. A reception will accompany the event.

“Humanizing Science” will delve into Gillooly’s experience as a biologist working in an art department and the scientific training he gained from this experience.

Gillooly, who has worked on more than 50 published articles and four textbooks, also will discuss successful collaborations among artists and scientists in the laboratory, studio and classroom.

The Sutton Lecture Series was established to bring biologists to OU to present talks about natural history to general audiences. The series is dedicated to the public communication of natural history and is sponsored by the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Program, the Department of Zoology in the OU College of Arts and Sciences and the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.

Sam Noble is located on the OU Norman campus at Timberdell Road and Chautauqua Avenue.
