The Waterhouse exhibition contains finalists' pieces from Australia’s premier natural science art prize and commemorates the birth of the South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick George Waterhouse. The prize invites established and emerging artists to present their perspectives on the scientific issues facing our planet, and the exhibition ignites thought and debate among viewers. This year, the Waterhouse includes greater opportunities for artists working in a variety of media to explore and comment on natural science and the world around them.

The exhibition comprises of finalist entries as selected by internationally recognised judges and is a compelling display of science seen through the eyes of compelling artists.
