November 21, 2019

Amy Lesen, ByWater Institute Research Associate Professor, and Ama Rogan, Managing Director of A Studio in the Woods, spoke at the DC Arts Science Evening Rendezvous on October 17, 2019.

Inspired by a series of residencies pairing artists with scholars, Lesen and Rogan have embarked on a journey to investigate the power of art-science collaborations: What makes them successful and effective? In what ways do they uniquely impact science learning and engagement? How can research enhance the reach of the art-science field?

It is part of the Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) international network of art and science salons.
