Remembering Rosalind Franklin

Today's the last day to catch Rosalind Franklin: Discovering DNA's Structure at Smith Killian Fine Art Gallery on Queen. The short-lived show contains work by two collaborating artists, Clare O'Hagan and Denise Wyllie.

Franklin was a chemist who's probably best known for her x-ray photographs of DNA. Her genetic research was some of the earliest and most ground-breaking.  Tragically, ovarian cancer took her life before the fruits of that research were ripe.

Smith Killian has teamed up with the Center for Women to create this show. 80% of all proceeds will go to the SC Ovarian Cancer Foundation.

If you miss this weekend's tribute to Franklin, you can find out more about the artists and their work on their website: www.wyllieohagan.com
