More Information

Hollins University is hosting a week-long symposium designed to highlight and investigate how both art and science utilize the creative mode of thinking and making to discover new solutions to difficult problems.

Free and open to the public, Transect/Intersect/Transform is a series of events held March 4-8 that integrates art and science, and involves faculty, students, local artists and scientists, and community members.

The symposium includes an art exhibition, readings and performances, a panel discussion, a participatory art project, and a talk by artist and biologist Andrew Yang, who works across visual arts, sciences, and natural history. His art has been exhibited from Oklahoma to Yokohama, and his writings have been published in journals such as Biological Theory, International Studies in the Philosophy of Science, Current Biology, and Leonardo.

Yang is currently an associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a research associate at the Field Museum of Natural History, also located in Chicago.
