The exhibition 'Ilustraciencia 7' is a selection of 40 works by participants in the sevents edition of the International Award for Scientific and Nature Illustration organised by the National Museum of Natural Sciences of Madrid (MNCN-CSIC) and the Catalan Association of Scientific Communication. The initiative also has the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and the 'La Caixa' Foundation.
The travelling exhibition shows visitors the work of professionals in scientific and naturalist illustration. An animal, a mineral or the reconstruction of a landscape from millions of years ago can be represented by means of an illustration, using different techniques, but always with scientific rigour.
In 2019, 500 works were submitted to the competition, of which the professional jury selected 40 for this travelling exhibition. Two students from the UPV/EHU master's degree in Scientific Illustration, in which the Laboratorium Museum collaborates, were selected: Amaia Torres and Mikel Rodríguez.
