Faculty of the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) collaborate with the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) and local Troy artists on two Art_X concerts to discover the art in science and the science in art. The concerts, which will be held on Tuesday October 6 and October 20 at 4:30 pm in the CBIS Auditorium, are free and open to the RPI community. Following each concert, there will be a reception hosted by CBIS in the Gallery of the CBIS Auditorium.
