TalkSTEM is pleased to bring you another Youtube video this week. Justine Ludwig shares her views on Art as it relates to Science, and presents her perspective that “Science and Art are in conversation with each other.” Justine is Director of Exhibitions at the Dallas Contemporary and has collaborated recently with talkSTEM on “An Evening Honoring Women in STEAM”, held at the Contemporary on January 22, 2016. You can hear her remarks from the event on the video on talkSTEM’s youtube channel. She is a firm believer in the value of both art and science to all people. Justine and talkSTEM hope that more and more young people will identify themselves as both artists and scientists and engage in the beautiful and fascinating conversations the two spheres have with each other.
