An Evening of Art +Science–the collaborative process begins. Dr. Eva Feldman, director of the University of Michigan’s A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute, talks with artist Beverly Fishman, who will create art based on her research, about commonalities in the fields of art and science.
The artwork that results from this collaboration and those of 18 other artist-scientist pairs will be auctioned April 21 at MOCAD in Detroit to benefit the Taubman Institute’s Emerging Scholars Program.
