"A collection of 16 textured quilts inspired by scientific photographs of biological structures is being exhibited at the Center for Care and Discovery, marking the beginning of a series of art installations set for the new hospital pavilion.
Returning for its second showing at the University of Chicago Medicine and Biolological Sciences following multiple requests, “Art Under the Microscope: Bioartography Quilts” will be on display from Monday, June 3, through the end of August."

More images of the quilts can be found at the website of the Washington, D.C.,-area art quilters from a group called Fiber Artists @ Loose Ends who created the pieces.
