In addition to the exhibition, on Saturday, April 7th at 2 pm, The Space Between - Symposium – Art/Science, an educational program sponsored by the Kent County Arts Council and underwritten by private donors, will take place at the Garfield Center for the Arts. The event is FREE and open to the Public.

Artist Greg Mort is a gifted amateur astronomer and was an early participant in NASA’s American Artist program. He served on the Board of the MacDonald Observatory and currently serves on the Executive Board of the Lowell Observatory and the Night Sky Conservation Foundation. New discoveries in physics and cosmology are challenging long held assumptions concerning the evolution of the galaxies and opening new opportunities for research and exploration. Abstract concepts often require metaphor so that we might understand their meaning. Throughout history the artist and the scientist have been challenged to create the language their discoveries demand. Greg Mort, a frequent speaker on the collaboration of art and science, has invited others on the forefront of this visionary quest to serve on the panel for the April 7th symposium.

Ambassador Cynthia P. Schneider will introduce the symposium. Greg Mort will serve as moderator and panelist. Dr. Richard Mushotzky, an astrophysicist and NASA X-Ray astronomer, Tom McCabe, Founder and CEO of McCabe Software, Rebecca Hoffberger, the Founder and Director of the American Visionary Art Museum, and Erik Neil, Director of the Academy Art Museum will complete the panel.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.
Albert Einstein
