The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture is currently partnering with the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC in publishing the proceedings of A Virtual Symposium: Visual Culture and Bioscience.
With technical support provided by CADVC staff and the Office of Instructional Technology at UMBC, the National Academy of Sciences hosted the online conference during the first two weeks of March, 2007. Over 25 internationally recognized scientists and visual artists explored three topics during the course of their discussion: imaging in art and science, artists in the lab, and social and cultural implications of visualizing the biosciences. The publication will be distributed internationally through Distributed Art Publishers (D.A.P.) in New York.
