It is with pleasure that we announce the opening of SciArt Center, an organization devoted to the coming together of scientists and artists. With our partner organization, CENTRAL BOOKING, we are located in New York's Lower East Side.

At SciArt Center, we think artists and scientists seek answers to the same fundamental questions: who are we, why are we here, and where are we going? Both art and science build models of human experience in order to extend the boundaries of human capacity. Despite this common ground, artists and scientists are too often separate in their endeavors. In providing a physical space for artists and scientists to meet, collaborate, and experiment, we offer support and promote cross-disciplinary approaches and interactions. With exhibition opportunities in CENTRAL BOOKING's OffLINE gallery and Haber Space, we hope many of our members will contribute to showcasing the wonderful potential of science and art collaborations.

SciArt Center will also host an assortment of programming. Through science-themed exhibits, film screenings, workshops, speaker series, and our bimonthly magazine SciArt in America, we aim to stimulate and cultivate the growth of partnerships between the arts and sciences.

The Center's membership program offers varying levels of access and benefits for those who wish to support the center's growth and development to those who wish to utilize the center for their short-term or long-term projects. Our 'Supporting Memberships' are suited for those who with to help sustain the center, and our 'Think Tank Memberships' provide a variety of access and benefits for those who wish to partake in our 'Think Tank' communal work. All Think Tank and Supporting members will also enjoy our event series and the benefits of joining a well-established SciArt community. With the pursuit of scientific and artistic understanding within the larger paradigm of intellectual unity, SciArt Center will encourage the connectivity and transdisciplinary approaches needed for the 21st century.

As a community-based organization suited for artists and scientists working across disciplinary boundaries and their patrons, we depend on all of our members for support. If you are interested in becoming a member or donor and would like more information about SciArt Center, please email us at today!
