BRAINWAVE: “Entertainment, Education and Enlightenment from January to June”

Today’s email brought‘s “Visual Arts Brief” noting upcoming lectures at the school (subscribe here), indicating the first of the spring’s ART IN THE FIRST PERSON event as follows:

“For the spring 2008 semester, SVA is presenting its second Art in the First Person (AFP) lecture series. AFP kicks off on Tuesday, January 29, with a talk by Susana Martinez-Conde, a research scientist at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, who studies optical illusions; the lecture begins at 6:30pm at 133/141 West 21st Street, room 101C. (This event, along with other select AFP lectures, is co-sponsored by the Brainwave festival.)”

I followed the Brainwave link to find this interesting series of events:

BRAINWAVE asks how art, music, and meditation affect the brain and offers countless answers in more than a hundred public events, ranging from an exhibition of contemporary art and a cinema series to cutting-edge concerts, performances, talks, and panels.

This “only in New York” cultural festival is organized by six New York institutions: Rubin Museum of Art, Exit Art, Science & the Arts at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, The Philoctetes Center at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, and the School of Visual Arts, in association with the Public Programs/American Museum of Natural History.”

Check this out! An interesting blend of art and science.
