The Art of Science brings together 6 pairs of NYC scientists and artists for a 6-month collaboration to create works that exploring the exchange between two seemingly disparate disciplines.
Artists and scientists immerse themselves in their counterpart’s world. Artists visit the lab to learn about the science and participate in experiments. Scientists visit the artist's studio to learn about the artistic medium and participate in the artist's craft.
Works produced as a result of the collaboration may focus on any aspect of the experience, including insights into research methods, the scientific concepts involved, new discoveries, human impact, and so on. Past collaborations have created works in paint, sculpture, mixed media installations, dance and musical performances.
The Art of Science hosts a final exhibition of the works, seeking to provide new and unique perspectives on science to the NYC community.
