Science and Art Cabaret 23.5: Tree of 40 Fruit
[ART LECTURE] The Tree of 40 Fruit is an ongoing series of hybridized fruit trees by contemporary artist Sam Van Aken. Each tree Van Aken has sculpted through grafting produces more than 40 types of stone fruit (peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, etc.) and the attendant variety of blossoms. Van Aken presents his multifaceted project—various parts science, art, conservation, and archive—at a special installment of the Art & Science Cabaret series at Hallwalls on Thursday, December 6. Van Aken’s talk is presented by Hallwalls, the Buffalo Museum of Science, Coalesce Bioart Lab, and UB College of Arts & Sciences.
