The Science+Art Project

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."
   ---Albert Einstein, What I Believe, 1930

For the last 15 to 20 years researchers and scholars have been working on the relationships between science and art, working mostly quietly. Science+Art© will bring to the public the scope of this work. Intellectually and visually itís compelling material. It helps those who are science-shy come to science in a way thatís easy to grasp. It enlightens those who are mystified by art, by pointing out an intellectual and often scientific basis for understanding. And once these connections are done, it's almost impossible ever again to think about science and art separately.

Science+Art intends to be a fairly generous comprehensive look at the relationships between science and art.

"The arts like the sciences start in the real world. Then reach out to cue possible worlds, and finally to all conceivable worlds."
