In honor of Leonardo's 50th birthday, this party is an invitation to people in Southern California and at SIGGRAPH who have in some way intersected with Leonardo over the years. People who have contributed as authors, academics, advised graduate students, graduate students participating in LABS, LASER participants and people in the community who are interested in the intersection of art/science/technology.
Because of space restrictions, we are requesting rsvps so that we can do a head count.
50 Years of Celebrating the Community
Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.
Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
