As artists, designers, and scholars navigating the ever-evolving landscape of art-making in a digital world, it is with great excitement that we host a panel discussion titled, “Who Made This? Navigating the Intersection of AI and Artistic Pedagogy.” Featuring several SAIC faculty currently engaged in conversations and work within and around artificial intelligence (AI), this hybrid panel and group discussion will be an enriching exploration of AI and its usefulness in art higher education.
