SfN 2014, Here I Come!

I’ll be showing my work at this year’s Society for Neuroscience meeting (aka SfN2014), which takes place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in DC from November 15-19. Around 30,000 scientists, writers, policymakers and others involved in all facets of neuroscience attend this meeting, so I’ve been painting a whole bunch of brains and neurons for them. I’ll also debut two new neuron-themed scarves there. I’m excited and nervous! It’s a lot different than any show I’ve ever done before, so I really don’t know what to expect.

If you’re attending SfN2014 and want to find me, I’ll be part of the Art of Neuroscience exhibit, located on the L Street bridge that links the two buildings of the convention center. We’re across from the SfN Information booth and near Hall D, where the special lectures are held.

If you’re not registered for the conference and still want to see me, there are two times when the exhibit is open to the public: On Saturday, November 15, from 11 am to 1 pm, Chef Bryan Voltaggio will speak about how he strives to create culinary treasures that transform how his guests think about food. That’s in Hall D, right near me, and sounds like fun! On Tuesday, November 19, from 3-5 pm, there’s a forum on science funding that is also open to the public. If you want to come to either of these events, please let me know and I can help you get a pass in advance.

All my people attending SfN2014, please spread the word that I will be there with paintings, scarves and petri dish ornaments, perfectly timed for busy scientists to buy for the holidays!
