Registration is closed

For his Enemies Project, Dr. Nelson Guda traveled to conflict zones across the globe to try to bring together people from opposite sides of conflicts. The diverse assortment of art works that came out of the project aimed at exploring the devastating consequences of hatred and loss. The artist and former scientist will talk about how this and other experiences uphold his philosophy that life actions are the purest form of art. He’ll talk about creativity and the creative process through the lens of work that has taken him from the halls of Congress to the slums of Kenya.

About our speaker:

Dr. Guda began his education in a dual degree program in physics and fine art at Carnegie Mellon University and later spent three years studying traditional arts in Japan. He holds a doctorate in biology from the University of Texas at Austin, where he also helped found and run the Environmental Science Institute. He now works full time as an artist. Dr. Guda’s work has been shown across the U.S. and in the United States Senate Building.
