Jennifer Ouellette is a nationally recognized science writer and the author of four popular science books.

From November 2008 to October 2010, Ouellette was the founding director of the Science and Entertainment Exchange, a Los Angeles-based initiative of the National Academy of Sciences aimed at fostering creative collaborations between scientists and entertainment industry professionals in Hollywood.

Lia Halloran’s studio practice has been in dialogue with science and nature for the past fifteen years and is the primary mediator between subject matter. Halloran’s work often makes use of scientific concepts as a starting point that interweave ideas about sexuality, intimacy and physical movement to produce merged projects that have included astrophysics, magnetism, perception, scale, gravity, giant caves of crystals and ice, cabinets of curiosities, taxonomy, classification, periodic table of elements, skateboarding, and interconnections within the above.
This program is free and open to the public. RSVP requested.
