On May 11 at 8:30 pm at the internationally-acclaimed Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw, award-winning American artist Amy Karle and 20 prominent Polish artists will open their long-awaited exhibit Layers of Life. The project hosted by the Copernicus Science Center and directed by Karle, will present a collection of Bioart and STEM projects created with new technologies to reveal social and environmental dynamics. The exhibition is the culmination of the first ever Arts Incubator program launched in Poland by the U.S. Department of State. Arts Incubator is an international cultural exchange initiative that sends distinguished American artists overseas to partner with local community members and organizations to address social challenges – such as economic equity or environmental sustainability – through public art and technology projects. During her month-long Artist-in-Residency at the Copernicus Science Center, Amy Karle has shared her cutting-edge digital and media art skills to empower women through the science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) fields. During the May 11 exhibit, participants of the workshops led by Ms. Karle will present their works and pitch their projects in order to win a prestigious grant to continue their work. The Embassy and U.S. Department of State are grateful to the Copernicus Science Center for their support of this important project and look forward to more fruitful cooperation in the future.
