"The Captivating Cosmos" Panel Discussion
Seton Hall > News & Events 

"The Captivating Cosmos", on display at South Orange's Pierro Gallery, is a multi-disciplinary exhibition that blends the field of astrophysics with contemporary artwork. On December 12, Seton Hall University will be hosting a panel discussion associated with the exhibit that intends to open up a dialogue between the disciplines of art and science. Panelists will explain how both creativity and scientific reason complement one another.

In the words of Stephen Hawking "we are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special." "The Captivating Cosmos" aims to further that understanding by presenting this knowledge in creative new ways. The panel will be moderated by the exhibition's curators, Alyssa Dreliszak '14 and Meaghan O'Connor '14, who are both graduate students in Seton Hall University's MA Program in Museum Profession.

Panelists will include Dr. Marian Glenn, Professor of Biological Studies at Seton Hall University, as well as two of the artists featured in the exhibition, Assunta Sera and David Mazure. Guests from all disciplines are invited to attend.

"The Captivating Cosmos" is on display at the Pierro Gallery through December 21. The gallery is located in the Baird Center, 5 Mead St., South Orange, NJ.
