Art and Science Connection at Broad

Art and science are ways that we try to explain our place in the world and tackle unanswered questions. While they may seem to represent unrelated approaches to our understanding, they overlap in important ways that present opportunities to enhance both. Whether through paint brushes or petri dishes, the creativity, conceptualization, and discovery inherent to both art and science place them surprisingly close on the continuum of efforts to make sense of our world. Broad's artist-in-residence program allows leading scientists and forward-thinking artists to work, communicate, and learn together to benefit both science and art, spurring the creative thinking that drives innovation.
