FSU is hosting a campus-wide celebration of creative cooperation between the arts and sciences
The connection between the arts and sciences has often been shaky. But an effort to promote and celebrate cooperation between the two areas will happen this week at Florida State University. College of Music Professor Iain Quinn said he posed a question to fellow faculty all over campus.
"What would you really like to do if it were a collaboration with another department? And to get all those ideas and throw them into the mix and see what we ended up with. And what we ended up with was a 4-day festival."
Called the Festival of the Creative Arts, Quinn said the free-and-open-to-everyone happening will start Thursday evening and last through Sunday. Here's just one highlight.
"On Saturday morning, there's a collaboration between the (FSU Flying High) Circus and the Marching Chiefs, both of which have distinctive presences on this campus, so we wanted to celebrate that as well."
The FSU Research web site has a complete list of events and locations over this week's four-day Festival of the Creative Arts.
