Contemporary Alchemy: Women in Art + Science

Join the American Folk Art Museum for an evening with contemporary women artists working at the intersection of art, science, and education, inspired by the interdisciplinary nature of the works on view in the exhibition Charting the Divine Plan: The Art of Orra White Hitchcock (1796-1863).

Bio Art Artist Suzanne Anker and NASA Senior Graphic Designer Sally Bensusen will speak about their practices and education projects working across the fields of art and science to experiment with new ways of learning and making. A conversation moderated by Co-Director of the New Radical Archives Workshop Katherine F. McLeod will follow.
