The Art of Science Inspires Residency Program at Biotech Company

PHILADELPHIA (September 6, 2017) – A new kind of interdisciplinary artistic collaboration is happening in Philadelphia this fall.  The University City Science Center has partnered with biotech company and uCity Square resident Integral Molecular to host an artist-in-residence program focused on biotechnology.  The three-month pilot of the Art + Science Residency will begin in September with Philadelphia-based artist Orkan Telhan.

The Art + Science Residency’s goal is to provide access, opportunity and awareness for artists to explore the ever-changing world of biotechnology.  Telhan will have free reign of Integral Molecular’s lab space with direct access to biotech expertise and equipment at the company.  The Science Center will host a public lecture by Telhan on October 3rd at 5:00 p.m. to be held at Quorum, and progression of his work will also be documented online.
