Art + Science
Introducing 2018 Program Calendar
Art and science DO mix. While the two realms have distinct cultures, artists and scientists share a curiosity for the unknown. Creativity is as essential to the scientific process as it is to the artistic method.
In 2018, The Rockwell’s exhibitions and events will explore the intersection of art and science and the ways in which they complement each other with the shared vision of discovering something new. Don't miss this year's exhibitions, family programs, and events revolving around the theme of Art + Science.
