Art and Science Connection at Broad

Art and science are both ways in which humans try to explain our place in the world and tackle unanswered questions. While it may seem that they represent polarized approaches to our quest for understanding, there are important common denominators that present fantastic opportunities to enhance both through their synergy. Whether execution involves paint brushes or petri dishes; the thinking, conceptualization, and self-discovery inherent to both art and science place them surprisingly close on the continuum of efforts to make sense of our world. Broad Institute regularly presents opportunities for scientists and artists to interact, with the aim of challenging their fundamental processes, and look at problem-solving in a new way.
