"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
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.
