The University City Science Center has partnered with biotech company and uCity Square resident Integral Molecular to host an artist-in-residence program focused on biotechnology. Based in Philadelphia, the goal of this program is to provide access, opportunity and awareness for artists to explore the ever-changing world of biotechnology.
Please join us on Thursday, July 19th at 12 p.m. for a lecture by our current Artist-in-Residence Deirdre Murphy, to be held at Quorum, 3711 Market Street, suite 800.
Deirdre Murphy has been researching the effects of climate change on bird migration, using the visual data that scientists share with her to conceptualize and execute her paintings. Her fascination with avian migratory patterns and the effects of global warming have led her research to Hawk Mountain Bird Sanctuary, Powdermill Nature Reserve and Drexel University’s Academy of Natural Science and most recently the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge.
