On April 26, the award-winning American artist Amy Karle officially launched the first ever Arts Incubator program in Poland. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and hosted by the internationally acclaimed Copernicus Science Center, the Arts Incubator program is an international cultural exchange initiative that sends distinguished American artists abroad 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. Named one of the “Most Influential Women in 3D Printing,” Amy Karle was selected to lead the inaugural AAI program in Poland. During her month-long Artist-in-Residency at the Copernicus Science Center from April to May, Karle will share her cutting-edge digital and media art skills to show how art and technology can empower women through the science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) fields. During her introductory Artist’s Talk on April 26, Karle gave a multi-media presentation on her life’s work to a full-capacity audience. She also participated in a panel hosted by the Cutler expert and English philologist Joann Jesman and philosopher Dr. Aleksandra Hirszfeld.
