MSU SciComm is a student organization aimed at promoting awareness of the different realms of science communication and providing opportunities for students to engage in them. This year we are bringing a unique opportunity to the East Lansing community. MSU SciComm and the MSU Broad Art Lab are seeking researchers interested in sharing their research with the community through science-art (SciArt). We aim to facilitate collaboration between scientists and local artists to create a platform where the pair can produce a work of art and share it with the community in Fall 2019. Some funding and space to work will be provided.
The theme of this program is "Life"; all art or science that fits within that framework is welcome. Interested scientists should submit project abstracts to msuscicomm.org/sciartexhibition no later than March 8th. Abstracts will be posted on the website for artists to view after submissions have closed. An information session will be held on March 18th, 6 - 7:30 PM in Erickson 228 to provide more information. The end of the session will include a session where artists and scientists can discuss potential projects.
