Art and science collide as artists investigate the natural world around them. The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize commemorates the birth of the South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick George Waterhouse. This biennial prize provides an opportunity for artists to investigate the world around them and present their perspectives on natural science.

Over the years the competition has become a much-loved fixture on the arts calendar, allowing artists and audiences to explore natural science through a range of creative outlets. It encourages artists to make a statement about the scientific issues facing our planet, and offers a valuable platform for them to contribute to the environmental debate.

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