On loan to SFI: James Drake's “Thank You Pontormo,” drawings #1284-1307, 2014 graphite, ink, and charcoal on book pages 76" x 144"

Recognizing that creative, curious individuals have always looked to the Santa Fe Institute for inspiration and intellectual stimulation, SFI's Broken Symmetry Society attempts to formalize those relationships by engaging with artists, writers, poets, musicians, and other creative thinkers. Discussions, talks, and onsite art exhibitions augment SFI’s creative environment where our scientists’ ideas and collaborations emerge.

Artists whose works are currently on exhibit at SFI's Cowan campus include:

James DrakeRead Me Feed Me, 2016, ink, charcoal, pastel on envelopes mounted on archival paper, 54 x 82 in.
