Pixels and Perspectives: The Intersection of AI and Art

Thu., Jun. 27, 2024, at 6:30 p.m. | Join the conversation with renowned experts and local artists as we showcase the WKAR original short form video, Pixels and Perspectives. Produced as part of the NOVA Science and Society project, Pixels and Perspectives explores the intersection of AI and art, as well as the implications that AI has on the present and future of our society.

This event is free, but RSVP here is recommended.

The evening begins with a reception featuring an interactive art activity led by MSU Museum. Light refreshments will be served.

The event will showcase a live art demonstration by two artists: one specializing in traditional techniques and the other utilizing AI. Both artists will create artwork inspired by a predetermined prompt, offering a unique blend of human and artificial creativity. While the artists create, guests can partake in a panel discussion with experts in AI, public policy, computer science, and more.

The evening will be hosted by Ashlee Smith, WKAR senior director of content and education.

Demonstrating artists include:

  • Marissa Tawney Thaler, Independent Illustrator
  • Mark Sullivan, CoLab Studio Creative Director at the MSU Museum
