Through the Eyes of the Lynx is the first of two Galileo’s World exhibitions developed in collaboration with the University Libraries and the History of Science Collections. This exhibit showcases the written works of The Academy of the Lynx, one of the world’s earliest scientific societies, stretching Europeans’ understanding of the life sciences, and its most well-known member, Galileo Galilei, who brought his expertise in mathematics, engineering, literature, art and medicine, expanding the Lynx understanding of the physical sciences.
In celebration of OU’s 125th anniversary, Galileo’s World is a series of exhibits, events, and programs at the Bizzell Memorial Library, the Sam Noble Museum, the National Weather Center, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Headington Hall, the Robert M. Bird Health Sciences Library, and the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Library. Starting August 2015 through 2016, Galileo’s World illustrates connections between science, art, literature, music, religion, philosophy, politics, and culture.
