The Art of Science was sponsored by the Newton South fine and performing arts department in 2015. Invention and innovation are the undercurrents of this mural that celebrates STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) education. From left to right you can "read" the mural. A timeline of innovation though out history begins with the Lascaux Cave Paintings, the evolution of lions as an art form from different cultures, pioneers of science (Raphael's School of Athens, da Vinci, Newton, Marie Curie, Mariah Mitchell, and Ramanujan) , to the present depths of research, and into the future that is yet to be shaped. This mural welcomes viewers to interpret, synthesize, and be inspired by what they have learned here at South and beyond. The right half of the mural asks viewers to take ownership of how they will contribute to our collective future. It was designed by the artist based on ideas and drawings of the students. It was painted by the students during art class and on weekends.
