Can science influence the arts in extraordinary ways as the understanding of our natural world evolves? We are pleased to be exploring this connection in a new live virtual programming series called “The Art of Science: Conversations with Creatives in Science” featuring a variety of visual artists, writers and photographers with scientific backgrounds in a conversation about how their scientific understanding of the world influences, enhances and guides their art.
This will be a series of three free evening programs from March through May 2021 broadcast live on Zoom. Each program features up to three artists on a panel and will be conversational in nature. Panelists will share how their understanding of science has shaped their own artistic journey, give the audience “tips and tricks” for aspiring scientific creatives, and audience members will be encouraged to ask panelists questions. More information about each program can be found on our Facebook events page, located here.
