Science & Art
This exhibit looks at how science and art work together to inspire innovative creations that enhance our lives and open our minds. Your visitors will meet five scientists who have used both science and art in their work, and learn what inspires them. There will also be plenty of opportunities to experience science and art firsthand with several hands-on interactive activities.
What does Origami have to do with geometry?
Why is a worm considered art to some?
How is music created from a micro-chip?
And how can a nanometer of water become a fun, interactive experience?
All these questions and more are answered in the Science & Art exhibit developed and created by the Science Museum of Minnesota for the Arkansas Discovery Network.
“Visitors can expect to see, hear and interact with works of art that illustrate how science and art intersect in real life. As visitors make their way through the exhibit, they’ll be encouraged to listen to their inner scientist and indulge their inner artist.”
— Diane LaFollette, former Network Director, Arkansas Discovery Network
Science & Art is organized into five “mini” exhibits featuring projects created by artists who have specific masteries in scientific areas. The displays are designed to show that art and science aren’t the same thing but have much in common. Visitors will also experience how art can be used to convey scientific ideas and phenomena and experience science from a fresh point of view.
