"To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; study the art of science. Learn how to see.
Realize that everything connects to everything else." Leonardo da Vinci
2017 was SPARK, a year long celebration of the relationship between the arts and science.
One of the goals was to establish partnerships and collaborations, and one of the outcomes was the formation
of the ARTS-SCI group, which continues the spirit of SPARK. This group of faculty members has collaborated
to sponsor events and offer curricula designed to foster discussions about the convergence between the arts and science.
Since then, a group of undergraduate and graduate students formed SEMINARIUM, a club with a similar mission.

The ARTS-SCI group formed to bring together faculty with an interest in the intersection of the arts and sciences, and in exploring how we can collaborate to bring this discussion to a broader audience. These collaborations have led to a lecture series, exhibits, formation of a student-led club, courses and lots of ideas. We invite others to join us; contact Jerri Bartholomew for more information.
