Science and Art

Conceptualize, experiment, reflect, wonder, and inspire; science and art have a lot in common. But bringing them together makes it even more exiting. In the context of 100 years Wageningen University & Research, various creative expressions can be admired and experienced on and around the campus. It is up to you whether it is artistic science or scientific art. Mind you, some expressions only have a temporary character.
