POLLINATE a success at HUBweek in Boston
Jason Hoelscher, Gallery Director and Assistant Professor in the art department, curated a multimedia art exhibition called POLLINATE, which was selected as a featured event at the HUBweek art, science and technology festival in Boston. HUBweek, a partnership between Harvard University and MIT, brings together artists, designers, tech companies and science teams from around the world. In addition to Hoelscher, two other POLLINATE participants are from Georgia Southern, including Associate Professor of art Jeff Schmuki, whose work was part of the exhibition, and art graduate student Jessamy McManus, who contributed curatorial and organizational advice.
The POLLINATE exhibition was a popular stop for festivalgoers and the exhibition garnered lots of media attention. Schmuki’s collaborative work, PlantBot Genetics, was featured prominently in the Boston Globe. Other articles highlighting POLLINATE were on Boston.com, a subsidiary of the Boston Globe.
