While UC Santa Cruz Institute of the Arts and Sciences (IAS) has had to suspend in-person exhibitions and arts programming to support efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we firmly believe that communal engagement with art remains crucial. Art Without Distance, our new online program in art and culture, is committed to cultivating the arts as part of our daily lives, helping our minds stay open to the creative possibilities of even troubled times.
Leonardo Art & Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER) is an international program bringing together artists, scientists, and scholars for presentations and conversations. LASER Talks are a program of the Leonardo International Society for Art, Science, and Technology (ISAST). Recordings of past UC Santa Cruz LASERs are below.
