Join us on January 19 at 6:30 for a special Book Club: Book Launch Event.
We'll be joined by author Mary Boehm as she discusses her new book, "Exploring Science and Art: Discovering Connections Between the Nature of Science and the Science of Art."
About the Book
What do Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso have in common? Can we learn about science by studying art? Many connections are just waiting to be discovered between the natural world and artistic techniques that have been used for centuries. Mary Kirsch Boehm systematically guides you through a look at science with an artistic eye, introducing an integrated and often overlooked view of the two disciplines. By exploring the materials and techniques of art and the science behind them, Boehm reveals just how interconnected our world really is.
About the Author
Mary Kirsch Boehm can detect the presence of an art museum from miles away, and she has done so during her travels around the world for many decades. Armed with art books, the science educator trekked from museum to museum in Europe for more than 40 years, and her passion for art and science has never diminished. Born in Lockport, New York, the retired science teacher has science degrees from Buffalo State College and the University at Buffalo and is now a docent at the renowned Albright-Knox Art Museum and the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, New York.
