For its sixth collaborative, multidisciplinary exhibition, the WVU Art in the Libraries committee invites the WVU community to share their thoughts on how artificial intelligence (AI) might fields of study, work, career readiness and community engagement.
Exhibits Coordinator Sally Brown would like to work with a
variety of WVU classes, staff and groups in the fall of 2023 to develop content
Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Your Education and Fields of Work”.
Brown suggests those interested in participating begin by
asking themselves questions about AI, such as: What will the use of these
applications change about, for example, fields such as engineering, science, design,
business, media, agriculture, education, the humanities, the arts, community
development? How is AI already impacting you?
The exhibit will debut at the WVU Downtown Library in the
fall of 2024 and become part of the Research Repository of WVU.
Ways of participating might include:
- Inviting Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org, into a class session to do an interactive brainstorming exercise around the topic as it relates to your field of study.
- Projects asking students to speculate how AI might change their field of study. These might be a designed poster, a short paper with an image(s), a collage/artwork/creative writing, etc. Students could work individually or in teams.
- Professors write their own short response to the prompt with or without image(s).
- Other ideas to suit the course.
- Staff also may submit how AI might impact their position/field individually or in groups.
Contributions may range from the small to the large, tailored to suit your course objectives. The only mandate is to grapple with how AI may impact the future. A follow up reminder about potential course integration will be sent out in August. Deadline to submit materials is Dec. 31.

Brown is also seeking partners.
