A Perfect Union: Art and Science
Since the enlightenment of humankind, science and art have been the dual axes around which our culture revolves. Distinct but inseparable, they continue to challenge, enrich and fascinate us, often marrying their processes for the benefit of societal progress. At the University of Baltimore, an institution long known for its solid career preparation and practical education, science and art are gaining a foothold—and not just uniting, but colliding. This fusion results in the very scientific forensic exploration of art, unraveling paint splatters rather than blood spatter; the artistic, imaginative bent necessary to turn scientific NASA inventions into lucrative, commercialized products; and the bold, bright strokes of creativity that convert library science into an engaging, entertaining experience for children who can’t yet read.
This is what’s happening here at UB, as we prepare our students for a 21st-century world in which the age-old, multidisciplinary powers of art and science become increasingly critical to success across professional spheres.
