Figure 1: Scientists and Artists Picture the Intangible
Where: gallery F. at Scarritt-Bennett Center
When: Panel discussion 7 p.m. tomorrow. Exhibit through Nov. 14
The relationship between science and art is a fascinating subject to broach, and Figure 1 is a great place to begin. Tomorrow, gallery F. will host a talk in conjunction with the exhibit, and will feature the opinions and perspectives of the artists and scientists whose contributions make up the show. The gallery generally hosts artist talks with each of its exhibitions, but since this one's firmly planted at the intersection of art and science, the multidisciplinary aspect of tomorrow's talk will be unique. Moderated by Jeffrey Williams and Adrienne Outlaw — who has been making work that blurs the boundaries between science and art for years — the discussion is free and open to the public. It's a great opportunity to be part of a conversation that has been on a lot of artists' minds since critics first compared painting to alchemy.
