Distillations #115 – Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, this show celebrates the contributions of African-American chemists. Segments on George Washington Carver (not JUST the guy who invented peanut butter) and a glimpse into CHF’s oral history program. You’ll hear interview excerpts from Reatha Clark King and Linda Meade-Tollin, two women who overcame both race and gender stereotypes to achieve great success in their field.

Distillations #114 – Elements of Expression

This show explores the intersection of art and science, with highlights from CHF’s new gallery exhibit, Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry. The first segment explains how the development of oil paints in tubes helped launch the impressionist movement. Then reporter Ashley Milne-Tyte interviews artist Dove Bradshaw about creating art from the elements.

The CHF exhibit also highlights this beautiful representation of the periodic table: The Periodic Table Printmaking Project.
