A Symposium on the Intersection of Art and Science at Wesleyan
Artists: head to Middletown this weekend and hug a scientist. Choreographer Liz Lerman (pictured) curates "Innovations: Intersection of Art and Science," a two-day Wesleyan symposium co-hosted by the school's Center for the Arts and its Hughes Program in the Life Sciences. Lerman tapped brainy-pants from the MIT Center for Art, Science and Technology, the Raw Data project at Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics and academics from Virginia Tech, the University of Colorado, Yale and its own Middletown campus to talk about art and science research, teaching and activism. Lest you think it's all going to be dry and academic-like, take a look at the symposium website; there'll be panels and breakout activities, including something called "ethical movement." Sounds dicey.
