The program

The Art of Science brings together 6 pairs of NYC scientists and artists for a 6-month collaboration to create works that explore the fusion of two seemingly different 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.

At the end of the collaboration, the artists’ works can focus on any aspect of the experience, including insights into conducting research, the scientific concepts involved, new discoveries, or the human impact. Past collaborations have created works in paint, sculpture, mixed media installations, dance and musical performances.

The Art of Science’s final exhibition of the artists’ work provides the NYC community a unique way to learn about science through an artist’s lens.
