Tonight dancer and MacArthur Fellow Liz Lerman joins Tikkun editor Michael Lerner, biologist Stephen Palumbi, and Stretcher’s own Meredith Tromble in conversation about genetics, art, and society moderated Kenneth Foster, YBCA Executive Director and Performing Arts Curator. Lerman’s latest work, Ferocious Beauty, opens at YBCA tomorrow night, was created while she was in residence at the Human Genome Project. Lerman says, “Let’s bring the scientists and the artists together and ask some questions about how professions demand purity, about the impact of action on the nature of inquiry and whether it taints our purpose.” The panel, in the Forum room at the Yerba Buena Center, is free to the public and starts at 6:30 pm.  From more information, visit the YBCA Web site.
