Explore the Art of Science at CSUS

Discover the link between science and art this spring with visual artist Suzanne Anker's at the ninth annual Festival of the Arts at California State University, Sacramento.

Anker, a professor at the New York School of Visual Art, will give a lecture, "Art and the New Genetics," at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 28, in Kadema Hall Room 145. Her installation, "Gene Culture: The Art of Suzanne Anker," will be exhibited in the Else Gallery, March 26 - 31.

Anker's work is an exploration of genetic imagery - chromosomes, molecules, DNA sequences - that investigates the kinship between artistic images and science.

"I am interested in the intersection between art and biology," says Anker. "It's the role of art to question the unquestioned and explore the role of visual metaphors. The new science of genetics provide a particularly fertile field for artistic investigation," says Anker.

The CSUS Festival of the Arts is March 23 - 31 and will include free and ticketed events such as lectures by cinematographer Mark Herzig and Aaron Betsky, the curator of architecture and design at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, puppetry, dance, cabaret, poetry, flamenco fusion, a production of Heather McDonald's play Dream of a Common Language and music performances by internationally acclaimed recorder player Marion Verbruggen as well as the CSUS Jazz, Symphony, Orchestra and Choir ensembles.
