Artist, professor combine arts and sciences in deep sea
November 8, 2018
“This connection allows us to use the beauty of the deep sea to captivate people’s imaginations,” Joye said. “I want to continue this because I think it is an exceptional way to engage the public in what we do.”
The Nov. 2 event, sponsored by the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, was part of the fall 2018 Signature Lecture series and a plenary presentation of the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities, or a2ru, conference.
Their collaboration began when they met at a National Academies workshop just a year ago. Their conversations about how art can convey the beauty of the deep sea sparked a collaboration.
