WHAT:In Sea of Cortez: A Leisurely Journal of Travel and Research, co-authors Ed Ricketts (a marine scientist) and John Steinbeck (a writer) expounded on "... the knowledge that all things are one thing and that one thing is all things—plankton, a shimmering phosphorescence on the sea and the spinning planets and an expanding universe, all bound together by the elastic string of time." They recommended that "it is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.” Since their collaboration was published in 1951, innumerable other connections between artists and scientists have educated and energized participants in both fields. Join us in celebrating the art in science and the science of art through collaborative works addressing the ocean sciences.
