Event description
Rebecca Kamen (Resident Artist, University of Pennsylvania) reflects on science and art as co-catalysts for making the invisible visible.

About this Event

“I never made a painting as a work of art, it’s all research.” Pablo Picasso

Drawing inspiration from astronomy, neuroscience, philosophy, and physics, sculptor Rebecca Kamen explores the curiosity and creativity that unite the sciences and the arts. Mobilizing her own restless curiosity, across the fields of science, history, and culture, Kamen conceptually reimagines and visually reinterprets the scientist as artist and the artist as scientist.

Kamen is Artist in Residence at the Computational Neuroscience Initiative and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship, the Pollack Krasner Foundation Fellowship, and the NIH Office of the Director Honor Award. Kamen is Professor Emeritus of Art at Northern Virginia Community College.

This event is free and open to the public.

Sponsors: American University's College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Art, Department of Philosophy and Religion, Department of Physics, as well as the "Curiosity, Mindfulness, and Education" Humanities Lab Working Group.
