There must be art times for biotechnologists too! Artists are always interested in the new and strange, and current biotech meets these 2 criteria.
Out of the programming events the free Technebiotics seems the most interesting and topic related:Technebiotics, The California College of the Arts 1111 Eighth Street, San Francisco November 2nd 2-5 P.M.
From the intro:
Part science fair, part county fair, this afternoon event will feature multiple live demonstrations and do-it-yourself workshops on a wide range of biological techniques and processes. Artists, scientists and educators will demonstrate cutting edge laboratory equipment alongside traditional horticultural methods and everyday organic reactions. Technebiotics is a place to learn about flora and fauna in an environment that mixes expert knowledge with playful experimentation.
With presentations of (why not performances?):
