3D Printing: Infinite Possiblities and New Challenges for the Art World

3D printing is impacting not just manufacturing, architecture, surgery, and fashion, but the visual arts as well. Many museums are 3D scanning their objects for creative re-use by the public, or for replication. Relatively low-cost 3D printers have also broken into the consumer market. A recent exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York showcased the broad range of artworks creted with this new technology. Please join us as we explore the promise and challenges of this new field. There will be a 3D printer at the program.
