ArtLab @ Vanderbilt Hosts Opening Reception January 18 at The Curb Center

Posted by on Monday, January 14, 2019 in Digital Humanities, Events, HART, News, Vanderbilt University, VRC.

Faculty, staff and graduate and undergraduate students will explore the intersection of art and science through a new exhibition that highlights the work of past ArtLab participants and introduces new ArtLab fellows.

Connecting the Dots” opens Friday, January 18, with a reception from 4 to 7 pm at The Curb Center, located at 1801 Edgehill Avenue. The event is free and open to the Vanderbilt community. On display through March 15, the exhibit will feature work by artists Jamie Wenke, genomics scientist; students Jacob L. Steenwyk and Eve Moll; Kendra Oliver, research instructor in pharmacology; and Marilyn Murphy, professor of art, emerita.



ArtLab attempts to connect artists and scientists within the Vanderbilt community. Participants gain experience in artistic and scientific processes and contribute to a work of art that is shown during a final exhibition.

“For me, bridging art and science is a way to open the beauty and complexity of science to diverse learners of all ages and backgrounds,” said Oliver, who started ArtLab as an interdisciplinary workshop at Vanderbilt in the fall of 2017.
