In conjunction with the Blaffer Art Museum, the Cullen College of Engineering is proud to present the first event in the Your Brain on Art series on Tuesday, October 13th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The series is a groundbreaking collaboration between UH’s Noninvasive Brain-Machine Interface Systems Laboratory, the Blaffer Art Museum and Houston-based artists that seeks to understand what happens in the brain as people create and contemplate art.

At this event, artists Lily Cox-Richard, Jo Ann Fleischhauer, and Dario Robleto will play a variation of Exquisite Corpse, a collaborative, chance-based game made famous by the Surrealists in the 1920s.

Seating is very limited for this event, so please reserve a free ticket to guarantee seating. You may also find more details about this event, the artists involved and the Your Brain on Art series here.
