Leonardo Art/Science Evening Rendezvous (LASER Series)

This is an Archive of a Past Event

The LASERs (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) are part of a national program of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversation with an audience. The Stanford LASERs are jointly sponsored by the Office of Science Outreach and the Stanford Arts Institute. Each evening event presents four artists, scientists, thinkers, inventors and scholars who are working on paradigm shifts, allows the audience to socialize, and encourages people in the audience to briefly introduce their work.
