First District Congressional Art Competition Deadline Announced

Art is an important part of life and helps us visualize the world around us. Art uses a different kind of knowledge than math and science but does help us find new and creative ways of understand the world and its problems. Art and science often work together. Science drills into the details but art can create new connections among broad categories of research. Thus, art is not a wasted enterprise but one that can have significant impact on the breadth of our personal lives  but also science and business.
