"Scientific concepts [were] brought to life through art. The aesthetic integration made us see science in a new way, and the scientific dialogue made us look at the art in a new way. It was utterly unique and truly exciting to take part!"
— DR. LEAH SOMERVILLE, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

"This exhibit did everything I hoped... It was engaging. It was interactive. It was important and timely. Timed at a political moment when awareness of our own and others’ biases were bubbling to the surface, the exhibit provides a sort of anchor; It acknowledges the natural and unavoidable existence of bias while also not rationalizing their existence as acceptable. "

"This exhibit converts narrow mindedness into tolerance while challenging the open-minded. The diversity of media engaged all our senses."
— Raphaël Pestourie, PhD Candidate in Mathematics & Applied Sciences, Harvard University & MIT
"It’s easy to think of science and art as competing ways to see the world. [The Plenary] makes plain the opposite truth: science and art richly complement each other in explaining our complexity, subtlety, and humanity."
— Andrew Watson, Educator & President, Translate the Brain
