The ArtScience Movement in the USA first appears in the 1990s and rose to prominence in the early 2000s, initially championed by diverse communities around the world, at the forefront, our regional connection the Leonardo Publishing Group (https://www.leonardo.info) of the Internation Society for the Arts, Sciences, and Technology located in the San Francisco Bay Area, now working in collaboration with ARTECA, the digital publishing project of The MIT Press.
That vision of ArtScience swiftly found common cause worldwide, with formal commitments from every major institution of learning. MIT, Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, Harvard, and most notable the Le Laboratoire Cambridge, a one-of-a-kind culture lab exploring the intersection of art and science through exhibitions, public programming, in combination with radical culinary cuisine.
This was followed in train by the ArtScience Cultural Lab and Café founded via the impetus and agency of Professor David Edwards, PhD, with projects from the small ensemble to large foundation-driven and national prestige projects like the internationally renowned ArtScience Museum located in Singapore.
