Sculptor and lecturer Rebecca Kamen investigates how the arts and creativity can enhance innovation and our understanding of science. Kamen’s artwork is informed by her research into cosmology, history, philosophy, and the common threads she finds through different scientific fields. She has lectured and exhibited nationally and internationally in China, Hong Kong, Korea, Austria, Chile, Egypt, Spain, and Australia. Her artwork is held in numerous collections. She has received fellowships and awards from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Arts Council of Fairfax County, VA, and Chemical Heritage Foundation. As an artist-in-residence in the neuroscience program at National Institutes of Health, Kamen interpreted and transformed neuroscience research into sculptural forms. She is Professor Emeritus of Art at Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria, Virginia.  

Kamen’s residency is sponsored by Carolinas HealthCare System.
