The resulting designs are now part of a fundraising auction in support of the not-for-profit Discovery Centre. The #RadScience Art Auction is open for online bidding until Dec 14th. Please make sure to stop in at the Centre in downtown Halifax to have an even better look at these fantastic works of art and a look at the artists who created them.
