The Research and Innovation Office (RIO) has recently announced the recipients of its Artist-in-Residence program. The projects will bring art and science together to illuminate important questions and big ideas.
One of the selected projects features visual artist Jenny Schmid, “who will consider reproductive health and health care access in collaboration with University of Minnesota Center for Bioethics Assistant Professor Jaime Konerman-Sease and Wangensteen Historical Library curators Emily Beck and Lois Hendrickson. This project will merge past and present images with the goal of highlighting women’s interactions with reproductive health and current political conversations surrounding health care access. This collaboration will result in an onsite and online exhibition.”
RIO is providing approximately $50,000 to fund the two projects, which are expected to be displayed or performed in fall 2024.
