The Stanford Arts Institute is sponsoring a year long program organized around the theme of cosmology and the arts: Stanford Arts Institute launches Imagining the Universe program – Stanford Daily .

Imagining the Universe will combine

the arts, humanities and sciences to explore our understanding of the universe. Program events include a speaker series, musical performances, art exhibits and even a freshman course on cosmology.

The goals

are to find and develop points of contact and connection among these different approaches, to deepen our understanding and appreciation for the richness of the universe, and to appreciate what we can learn about ourselves from the way we depict our cosmos. Through a related set of events and programs, the project will aim to engage multiple audiences: Stanford undergraduates and graduate students, specialists in relevant fields, and the broader community.
All public conversations are free and open to all.
