Data VisualizationData Visualization: Contributions and Insights from the “Museum of Cognitive Art” – Guest Exhibit by Zoraya Cruz-Bonilla and Kirsten Pagan, Glenn G. Bartle Lobby

Beginning with the use of symbols and the first bar chart, there has been a long history of presenting data that would otherwise be incomprehensible. At the crossroads of science and art, the creative transformation of data has spurred visual story-telling with a tremendous return on investment. However, in the age of big data what are the ethical responsibilities of presenting data in a manner that is unbiased, accurate, accessible and honors the factual? This Data Visualization exhibit aims to explain.

This guest exhibit was curated by Zoraya Cruz-Bonilla and Kirsten Pagan from Student Affairs Assessment and Strategic Initiatives and can be viewed in the Glenn G. Bartle Lobby. It will be on display August 2018-May 2019.
