Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, 1st Floor, Purnell Center for the Arts
23 September–12 November 2017 (Miller Gallery Reception: 22 September, 6:00–8:00 p.m.)

Worlds Within is a unique collaboration between the Hunt Institute and the Miller Gallery. The two venues, at either end of the Carnegie Mellon University campus, are exhibiting botanical micrographs by British artist Rob Kesseler (1951–) alongside botanical wall charts from Carl Ignaz Leopold Kny's (1841–1916) series Botanische Wandtafeln (Berlin, Paul Parey, 1874–1911). Complementing the forms represented in these charts and micrographs is a selection of models of marine organisms made of glass by Leopold Blaschka (1822–1895) and Rudolf Blaschka (1857–1939) and made of glacite by Edwin H. Reiber (1881–1967), loaned by the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
