"Science & Art " Juried Show
September 2 – September 30
Opening Artists Reception
Saturday, September 13th
6:00pm - 9:00pm
Critique of Artwork
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.
