Interdisciplinary Art — A Mixed Media Show is an exhibit of pieces created by the community, for the community. The exhibit will showcase artwork developed through collaborative efforts of local artists with UC Merced researchers, works by the community completed at Art Hop, and prose and poetry from local writers. For the research-driven art, twenty-two pairings of local artists and UC Merced researchers were created. After UC Merced researchers informally presented their research using notebooks, figures, pictures, videos and other visual aids, each UC Merced researcher and local artist pairing worked closely to create a piece of artwork to visually depict the research project and its broader impact. This exhibit will include a brief write-up of each researcher's work with its corresponding visual artwork, written prose or poetry, and community Art Hop pieces.
