Celebrating UC San Diego Art Innovation

Sheldon Brown, Chancellor Khosla, Jack Greenstein

Chancellor Khosla recently visited the University Art Gallery to see the Harold Cohen, Creating Computational Creativity exhibit, featuring numerous large-scale prints created over a 40-year period.  Cohen, who taught at UC San Diego from 1968 to 1994, was an early adopter of the computing/art connection.  While the Chancellor viewed the exhibit, Department of Visual Arts Chair and Professor Jack Greenstein and Professor Sheldon Brown shared insights into Cohen’s pioneering work in art and artificial intelligence.  The University Art Gallery was founded in 1966 and has a longstanding commitment to showcasing diverse artistic practices.
