Solving Complex Challenges Through Art and Science

daVinci Art Science Roundtable

The daVinci art science roundtables are a facilitated monthly series of exploratory discussions for artists and scientists to talk about the culture of their two fields and how they might collaborate more meaningfully. Ultimately, the discussions also explore how collaborations intersect with public understanding of science. The roundtables began with the basic assumptions that discussion between the artists and scientists had the potential to create new knowledge and ideas that would be of interest to the participants and eventually to the public as well. “Over the centuries art and science have come together and come into conflict, learned from one another and built upon shared insights,” said Joan Weinstein, director of the Getty Foundation. “We have faith that the remarkably diverse and inventive approaches taken by all the partner institutions will produce revelatory results and productive civic dialogue.” We will reference a recent article in the Getty Online Magazine about whether art and science can solve complex challenges of the 21st Join us for this free event on Friday, July 12, 2024, from 1pm to 2pm EST.

The dynamics of molecular clouds are extremely complicated. Join us for a Roundtable discussion of the ways that art is being used to create new models of the Universe. We will reference a recent artcle in Scientific American about Nia Imara who is both an artists and astrophysicist.

Description:

As we near the holidays we reminisce about the past. Our memories good and bad flood our thoughts. What are the ways we can use the arts to make sense of the past, to create lasting positive memories of the year gone by, and to record our thoughts in photos, paintings, drawings, words, and poetry. Come learn how to end this year and start the next through the practice of journaling.

Bringing Nature Home: Harvesting through Art

Location:

Fresh Pond South, South Dennis

Description:

When you think of this time of year, the thought of harvest and bounty come to mind. In this fall walk we will explore the many ways in which nature prepares for the coming winter though storing and harvesting the bounty of the summer’s growth. Can you capture these last moments of fall before the first snows of winter through your own special art form? What will others create? Come share your creative expressions with others as we gather in the beauty of nature.

Shadows

Location:

Pogorelc Sanctuary, W. Barnstable

Description: 

As we move into the month of shorter days and longer nights, shadows become a predominant feature of the landscape. We will go on a shadow walk and learn both the science of shadows as well as the ways they can be used in our painting, sketching, and photography to build compositions that may even border on the surreal. What better way to begin your winter months than with the time change embraced by the shadows of nature. The walk is intended to introduce participants to the science concepts through the arts as well as some techniques for capturing the best impression. The walks are designed for artists, photographers, and families of all ages and ability levels. Each walk represents a unique perspective of Trust lands. ($10 members/$15 nonmembers)
