Arts+Sciences: A Collaborative Model

Arts+Sciences will bring artists into the research process through an artist in residence program.

Art offers a pathway for CDCM to engage new audiences with the beauty, excitement, and impact of materials science and technologies.The artistic perspective not only communicates fundamental concepts in science to the public, it can also transform how scientists and engineers think about materials and stimulate new and creative approaches to CDCM research.

The artist residency enables artists to work with CDCM faculty to create contemporary art installations that demonstrate emerging science and technology, bringing fundamental concepts in science to the public in very tangible, engaging ways.
