This summer and fall, Grin City Collective brings together artists, writers, scientists, and educators for a special residency that uses innovation and design to build creative, interactive projects exploring the ways we interact with our world.
Molly Rideout and Kenji Yoshino will present, “CultureLab: Art + Science +Education” on Monday, July 28, at the Grinnell Regional Medical Center SE*ED program. Held at Drake Community Library, this free program is open to the public and begins at 10 a.m. Donations are accepted.
Residents at Grin City Collective are focusing on varied subjects such as microscopic art, alternate math history, green product design, and innovative apiaries where architecture meets urban design meets honey bees.
Rideout is the co-director of Grin City. A fiction and non-fiction writer from Madison, WI, Molly is the former director of Grin City’s parent organization, the Grinnell Area Arts Council.
Yoshino is a former Howard Hughes Medical Institute Baccalaureate Fellow in undergraduate science education at Grinnell College. He now serves as a facilities and project coordinator at Grin City Collective.
Looking forward on the schedule, Karla Erickson, associate professor of sociology at Grinnell College will present, “Making the Most of The Longevity Dividend: Visions and Plans” on Monday, August 4.
Parking is available at the Drake Community Library, along Park Street, on Fifth Avenue, and in the First Presbyterian Church parking lot.
