Art and science symposium open for submissions
Have an artistic piece to present or research to share?
College of the Mainland's annual symposium, "Being Human: the Art of Science and the Science of Art," will allow individuals to present publicly their work blending art and science.
“We want students to consider the interconnectedness between the arts and sciences,” said Dalel Serda, co-coordinator of the symposium with Dr. Veronica Sanchez. “The relationship between the two is often unacknowledged. We want students to consider all of this while (connecting) these concepts to what makes us human. It's a high order but one we're sure students will conquer in surprising ways.”
The Gulf Coast symposium is open to individual or group projects in fine arts, science, humanities, math or social and behavioral sciences. A symposium review committee will award scholarships to winners in each category.
To enter, participants must submit an abstract online at www.com.edu/symposium explaining their work and its importance in 100-200 words by April 2 at 5 p.m.
Individuals with accepted works will share them in a 15-minute oral presentation at the symposium on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The symposium keynote speaker is Dr. John H. Lienhard, professor emeritus of mechanical engineering and history at the University of Houston. He is the author and voice of The Engines of Our Ingenuity, a program aired by Houston Public Media at the University of Houston. COM art professor Mark Greenwalt will also speak.
