To begin the second annual Biopolitical Cultural Festival, we honored the memory of beloved colleague and friend Charlie Weiner, who passed away in January. The inspiration for including an evening of the arts at the Tarrytown Meetings came largely from Charlie, a life-long activist, scholar, and educator whose foundational work on the social, ethical and political dimensions of science went hand-in-hand with his love for jazz and folk music and the arts in general. We commemorated his remarkable life and contributions to our work as we carried on the tradition of the Biopolitical Cultural Festival at the 2012 Tarrytown Meeting. The evening opened with a few remarks from Shelly Krimsky followed by a musical tribute composed by Doug Pet and performed by Doug on the saxophone with Jason Yeager on piano.
