The 2018 Symposium will engage participants in an exploration of “living at the intersection” of engineering and the arts with thought leaders, researchers, artists, faculty, students, and professionals who create at or near this intersection. The symposium events are free and open to the public but advance registration is required online through Eventbrite. Seats are available for the morning, afternoon, and all day. REGISTER NOW
The Symposium will open from 6-7 PM with a performance of dance faculty member Rebecca Lazier’s There Might Be Others on Thursday evening in the Murphy Dance Studio at the Lewis Arts complex. Faculty and students will showcase their work bridging engineering and the arts from 7-8:30 PM in the Forum at the Lewis Arts complex.
On Friday, the symposium continues throughout the day in the Friend Center Convocation Room with a keynote lecture by American sculptor and fiber artist Janet Echelman. Lewis Center faculty members Martha Friedman, Aysnley Vandenbroucke, and Jeff Whetstone participate in panel discussions on such topics as asking questions, taking risks, form beyond function, and inspiration, collaboration, and process.
