2023 is the 10th Anniversary of March Mammal Madness, celebrating the natural world through an evidence-based, simulated animal tournament played by hundreds of thousands of students annually. Join MMM Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Katie Hinde and librarian Anali Maughan Perry to kick off the pre-season with updated information on this year’s tournament and resources, some highlights from the last 10 years of MMM and a return of the lightning round! Register to receive the Zoom link.

Katie Hinde is an Associate Professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change and the Center for Evolution and Medicine at Arizona State University. She investigates maternal and infant health in humans, monkeys and other mammals. In 2013 she created the March Mammal Madness science outreach program and has continued to serve as Editor-in-Chief of an incredible team of scientists, illustrators, conservationists, librarians, designers and educators who deliver an unparalleled extravaganza of performance science. 

Anali Maughan Perry is the head of Open Science and Scholarly Communication at ASU Library. In this role, she leads efforts to provide outreach and education to the ASU community regarding open science and open scholarship practices, as well as overseeing ASU Library’s KEEP institutional repository and the ASU Research Data Repository. Most importantly (for this audience), she manages the March Mammal Madness library guide, and has only successfully chosen the MMM champion once (go #TeamRedKangaroo!).

You may know how a typical butterfly wing looks, but would you recognize it magnified by 100 times its normal size? Drop in to NatureSpace 311E on the third floor of Hayden Library for a fun microscope guessing game to find out!

View specimens through the microscope and test your knowledge of the microscopic level as you compete for prizes! Microscopic structure can tell us much about how organisms interact with their environments.

Learn these chemical and physical properties and put your own specimens under the microscope. You’ll be amazed by nature’s hidden structures!

Seek and Find is the theme for this creative cartography exhibition. For the 9th year, this exciting exhibition is a collaboration between the School of Art and the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub. As part of sustainable art practice and exploration of related disciplines, students in the Art on Paper course brought new meaning to vintage topographical and geological maps originally withdrawn from the library collection. Inspired by the opportunity to work with maps, each artist created a two-dimensional and a three-dimensional original work of art.

The exhibit is open at Fletcher Library on the West campus during regular library hours. Plan your visit at lib.asu.edu/hours

“Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.” - Henri Rousseau

The Vault Gallery presents, “Nature Imagined,” a new exhibit featuring the artwork of Robert Palmer on display in the Downtown Phoenix campus Library from Jan. 9, 2023 until May 8, 2023.

Robert Palmer is influenced by nature and surroundings. His paintings are more than landscapes physically seen, rather imaginative or a reflection of feeling on a space remembered. His paintings are reminiscent of the past; capturing a moment in time to preserve a memory. Palmer has taken out the figure in the painting, leaving the viewer  stage to focus in the plane. This transcendence from imaginative nature to reality is definitive in his work. The viewer is transported to an imaginative state from the canvas into nature. While the works look like natural places, they are really born from ethereal memories.

For over 20 years, Palmer has worked to capture the aesthetic and conceptual  mastery of nature. Although nature is difficult to construct in one painting, Palmer seeks to tell a story of infinite locations, drawn by the constant changing emanating celestial light. Palmer graduated sum cum laude from ASU with a bachelor's degree in fine art painting. He has been featured in various publications. When he is not painting Palmer enjoys spending time with his family.

The Vault Gallery is open to ASU students, staff and faculty. Visitors must make an appointment. Contact Jackie Young.
