July 24-28, 2017

The Art, Robotics & Technology for Youth summer robot workshop offers middle school children (entering grades 5-8 in Fall 2017) an amazing opportunity to learn and experiment with robot art projects! Students will create and build unique working robots and will participate in art and robotics activities. Students will be supervised by professors Debra Burhans, PhD (Canisius College), and Karthik Dantu, PhD (University at Buffalo). The workshop will culminate in a presentation of student robot projects on Friday, July 28 at 11:00 am. Visit our ARTY page for application and other important information.

Spring 2017 – Joyce Hinterding and David Haines

April 19-28


David Haines and Joyce Hinterding, live and work in the Blue Mountains of Australia. They maintain independent practices and also collaborate on large-scale art works that explore diverse subject matter, often with a focus on revealing the unseen and the unheard. These works often incorporate Joyce’s investigations into energetic forces and David’s concern with the intersection of hallucination and the environment. We are confirming details with the artists concerning a public lecture and installation on campus. Check back soon, and join our mailing list to stay informed!
