There’s a commonality of creativity driving arts and science, both are problem solving and render ideas about the world into a form that allows the viewer to connect. One way to make science more accessible is to highlight how science and art are connected. Whether you’ve got a scientist who isn’t afraid to perform on stage or someone who is painting a series of murals on lizards, we’re here to tell the public about it.
