Event: Converging Currents: Where Art and Science Meet

Join MARINE for an evening dedicated to exploring the integration of art and science. A panel of artists will speak about their experience working at this interface, and will discuss how art can be used to improve science understanding, communication, and integration into society.

Where: Moss Landing Marine Labs
When: Saturday, October 8th, 5:00-8:30pm
Register HERE by October 6th

The evening will conclude with a reception in a pop-up gallery of artwork submitted by students, faculty, and other science-inspired artists in the MARINE community. Appetizers and drinks will be provided!

We are seeking artsy scientists or artists inspired by science to display their work during our pop-up gallery reception. If you are interested in submitting a piece of art, please click here for more information.



Enid Ryce

Enid Baxter Ryce (nee Blader) is an artist, filmmaker and musician whose investigations explore the lyrical relationships resonating in places between ecology and hidden histories.

Daniel McCormick and Mary O'Brien

Daniel McCormick and Mary O’Brien create sculptures that have a part in influencing the ecological balance of compromised environments. They have collaborated for over twenty years to create environmental art installations which have a remedial trajectory. Their projects move away from an anthropocentric point of view. These works are intended to give advantage to natural systems, and after a period of time, as the restoration process is established, the artists' presence diminishes, and the end result is remedial.

Daniel McCormick is an interdisciplinary artist/design professional with integrated skills in the fields of environmental design, sculptural installation and ecological restoration. He was educated at the University of California, College of Creative Studies and has a BA from the College of Environmental Design.

Mary O’Brien is a sculptor and creative director. She uses film, video and sculpture to explore the nature of shifting cultural identities in communities. She has a BA in Political Science from Marquette University and a Certificate in Studio Arts from UC Berkeley.
