Artists in Residence
Integration between science and art can take both fields to a new level of understanding. We are always interested in finding ways to collaborate with artists in the lab, including hosting artists in residence. We just hosted our first artist in residence in 2017, and look forward to hosting more in the future. If you are interested in visiting the lab as an artist, please contact Marjorie.
