Second Saturday Conversations: Art and Science: Two Sides of the Same Coin
September 12, 2020, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Art and science are two sides of the same coin, each seeking to understand and describe the world around us; by bringing these two fields together we all have the opportunity see and experience the world around us in new and richer ways. This program will explore how art and science overlap and complement one another, highlighting how artists experiment much like scientists do, how scientists employ their creativity much like artists do, and how bringing these two disciplines together advances efforts in both.
Mark M. Miller, owner of Miller Medical Illustration, creates illustrations for a diverse group of national and international clients, such as the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, depicting a wide range of medical, biological, scientific, and veterinary subjects. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, an early interest in both art and medicine led him to combine a BFA in Fine Art and pre-medicine at the University of Missouri, Columbia, where he graduated with honors, and an MA in Medical and Biological Illustration from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Art as Applied to Medicine.
