Student Showcase, Physics Meets the Arts

Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 1:30 pm3:00 pm

First-year Yale University undergraduate students present creative projects that fuse science and art. The projects are the culmination of a seminar titled “Physics Meets the Arts,” a semester-long exploration of fundamental physics concepts through the visual and performing arts designed and taught by Ágnes Mócsy, Presidential Visiting Fellow and Visiting Professor in the Physics Department and Wright Laboratory. Over the spring semester, students engaged deeply with the Gallery’s collection to discover innovative ways of seeing and understanding the connections between physics and the arts.

This program is jointly supported by the Yale University Art Gallery and Wright Laboratory.
