Nationally known multi-media artist Catherine Chalmers, who explores the lives of cockroaches and other creatures that the general public disdains, will speak on “Sex, Food Chains and Cockroaches” on Wednesday, Jan. 7 at the Wyatt Pavilion, University of California, Davis.
Her presentation, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., is the second in a series of four lectures on “The Consilience of Art and Science,” a centennial colloquium sponsored by the UC Davis Art/Science Fusion experimental learning program. The lectures are free and open to the public.
The Wyatt Pavilion is located on Old Davis Road, just southwest of A Street, across from Wyatt Deck.
“Catherine Chalmers investigates the natural world, from food chains to insect sex, revealing new points of view about our place in the ecosystem,” said Art/Science Fusion co-director Diane Ullman, associate dean of Undergraduate Academic Programs, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and professor of entomology.
