ArtSci98, a two-day symposium to be held in the Great Hall at
Cooper Union on April 4 & 5, 1998.  There, 40 of our nation's
most curious minds:  research scientists, artists, educators, writers,
and science and technology professionals, will present their work in
relation to issues of discovery, creativity, innovation, invention, and
current challenges. The goals of Art/Sci'98 are to dispel
misconceptions,
confirm suspicions about the advantages of multi-disciplinary learning,
and take an affirmative step in the direction of narrowing the personal
and professional schisms between scientists and artists and the general
public.
