Opening Artists Reception
Saturday, September 7th

Science and Art are two aspects of human cultural activity and experience. We find aesthetic inspiration from structures found in nature, and works of art can provide novel insights to scientists.
Only our age of extreme division of labor brought about a separation between science and art.
