Lindsay Olson is Fermi National Accelerator’s first Artist in Residence and is on the faculty at Columbia College Chicago. She is known for creating unusual residencies including a stint as the resident artist at Chicago’s Metropolitan Water Reclamation District. Her studio practice grows out of an intense curiosity about the ways our society is supported by science and technology. Scientific American, the Chicago Tribune, SciArt in America and the Chicago Artist Resource have featured her work. She has shown her work in many galleries in the US and internationally including Germany, Vienna, Athens and Geneva Switzerland. Her work is now touring both the US and in Europe.
