Art and the Life Sciences

Lynn Fellman, local artist, student of the Life Sciences and interviewer extraordinaire, will discuss her work and insights at our March chapter meeting. Ms. Fellman has been an independent digital illustrator and designer for many years but is best know for her integration of her art with Hap Maps of individuals’ ancestry resulting in what she has trademarked as DNATM Portraits. (Hap Maps make use of genetic markers in our chromosomes to trace the patterns of human migration from our common origin in Africa.) She has recently received a commission from the University of MN Medical School for a work to be titled “The HapMap Project” which will show the multicultural diversity of the student population. She has also been named ‘creative associate’ with the new Center for Art and Science at the U of MN’s Center for Bioethics. In her work and studies, Ms. Fellman has attended many conferences (where she has displayed her work) and interviewed many scientists. Many of these interviews were broadcast live on Air America and are available on her website ( She is a frequent guest and interviewer on ‘Atheist Talk’, the local atheist talk show on AM950 (Sunday mornings 9:00 am.) Ms. Fellman holds a BFA degree from the University of Minnesota.
