Art in the Details: A look at the role of art in science

With so much beauty in the natural world, why does the misconception that art and science are vastly different persist? Join us for discussion and dessert as we hear from artists, researchers and academic professionals about the role art has played in scientific research. From the formative work of Santiago Ramon Y Cajal, to modern imaging and beyond, how might art contribute to scientific understanding in the future?
