WEYERS CAVE — Blue Ridge Community College will be holding an art exhibition starting March 26, featuring student and faculty work to highlight cybersecurity risks and spark conversations around Artificial Intelligence.

“Fractured Reflections: Navigating AI, Cybersecurity, and the Shifting Self” will open with a reception on March 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the BRCC Fine Arts Center.

The exhibition, which explores AI systems, ethics and data collection, is part of a project funded by the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative at BRCC, “Cyber Insecurity: Exploring Vulnerabilities of Artificial Intelligence Through Visual Art.” It will run until April 15.

CCI was an initiative established by the Virginia General Assembly in 2018 to serve as an “engine” for research, innovation and commercialization of cybersecurity technology. CCI’s 2023 Cyber Arts and Design Program, which includes BRCC’s project, “challenges the arts and design research community to reimagine and depict the results of cybersecurity research.”

BRCC received a $25,000 grant — the only community college in Virginia to receive funding through the program — from CCI in 2023 to create the exhibit. The project features interactive installations, photography, sculpture and digital art. The goal is to raise awareness for cybersecurity vulnerabilities and create an interdisciplinary platform between the arts and cybersecurity communities.

In October, the exhibition will be on display at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia.
