The CCCA and CIVA present the 11th Annual Biola University Arts Symposium:
Openness to Experience: Rethinking Creativity & Aesthetic Intelligence.

This FREE one-day symposium will explore contemporary understandings of human creativity and imagination, pressing into the possible implications for the artist’s studio, the academy, and the communities we live in. This event will feature the cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman (PhD, Yale University), the scientific director of the Imagination Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and coauthor of the new book Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind; as well as artists Matthew Luhn (Story Supervisor, Pixar Animation Studios), Leah Samuelson (social practice artist, Chicago), Kiel Johnson (artist, Hyperbole Studios, Los Angeles), and Betty Spackman (installation artist, Canada).

Accompanying this symposium is the exhibition Extra-Ordinary Things, featuring the work of Lynn Aldrich, Steve Roden, Olga Lah, Kiel Johnson and McLean Fahnestock.

All are invited to this event; no registration is necessary. Lunch will be provided.
