"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

The Art-Sci collaborative aims to build a bridge between art and science by sharing diverse perspectives and providing opportunities for faculty and students to explore this interface. We draw from OSU’s rich history of scientific innovation and artistic creation. We inspire connection by establishing partnerships and collaborations, hosting workshops and by sponsoring events that foster discussion about the convergence of science and art.
