New York City's American Museum of Natural History is about to unveil a new exhibition spotlighting the artsy side of science. In this video, the curators behind the exhibition explain why they're taking a good long look at scientific beauty.

The exhibition opens on June 25 and runs for an entire year. Here's the description from the museum's website for the exhibition, which is entitled "Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies."

Whether Museum scientists are studying parasites, people, or planets in other solarsystems, cutting-edge imaging technologies such as infrared photography, scanning electron microscopes, and CT scanners now make it possible to examine details that were previously unobservable. This exhibition, curated by Mark Siddall, curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology, features more than 20 sets of large-format images that showcase the wide range of research being conducted at the Museum as well as how various optical tools are used in scientific studies
