The UF Howard Hughes Medical Institute Science for Life program and the College of Fine Arts will team up to host the third annual Creativity in the Arts and Sciences Event on Sunday.
The free event will be held in the Reitz Union Ballroom and the Nadine M. McGuire Theatre and Dance Pavilion from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be open to the public.
The event will feature scientific posters, 2-D and 3-D art exhibits, and dance and musical performances.
The posters will be intermingled with the art exhibits, allowing attendees to view two different sides of the creative process, UF-HHMI Science for Life director Ben Dunn said.
“When you think about artists and musicians, they are coming up with new material all the time,” Dunn said. “Scientists also do creative things. We have to think of new experiments, new approaches. The very best students have creativity as part of their makeup.”
