    November 16, 2011


    Artistic Visions, Scientific Truths

    Alexis Rockman, artist, with James J. McCarthy, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Biological Oceanography, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, and Acting Curator, Malacology Department, Museum of Comparative Zoology. Moderated by Susan Dackerman, Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Curator of Prints, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums.

    Artist Alexis Rockman, whose paintings harness the power of metaphor to create compelling visions of our complicated relationship to the natural world, and ocean biologist James McCarthy, a leader in bridging science and policy in his work on global climate change, will discuss the interconnections of art and science in the 21st century. They will address how a broader public might be engaged in the dominant scientific issues of our time and highlight both the wonder and the urgency that inform their work.
