Ruby Fridays

RUBY FRIDAYS is a new series of casual art talks at the Rubenstein Arts Center, free lunch included! Speakers include Duke faculty and students who have produced work during a Rubenstein Arts Center arts project residency, as well as visiting artists and local NC creatives. Learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

Christopher Lam is a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering and also an avid watercolorist who enjoys painting city skylines and animals in the traditional way. A residency at the Ruby this fall is his opportunity to engineer a 21st-century form of watercolor expression that is three-dimensional and interactive like a pop-up book.

For his Ruby Friday talk, Lam will share his work and the technique and technology behind it.
