Drop by the Ruby at noon on Friday for a casual art talk and free lunch! Speakers include Duke faculty and students who have produced work during a Rubenstein Arts Center arts project residency, as well as visiting artists and local NC creatives. Learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

A couple of years ago, Ariana Eily, Casey Lindberg, and Hannah Devens—three graduate students in biology and biomedical sciences at Duke—hatched a “hair-brained fantasy scheme”—to curate an exhibit of science as art for the general public. That scheme became a reality last summer in Gallery 235 in the Ruby. Their exhibition brought the work of 22 scientists (including photographs, micrographs, botanical prints, watercolors, and two videos) together with visual responses by 13 local artists.

Join Eily, Lindberg, and Devens for lunch and learn more about this very successful exhibition and the commonalities between art and science.
