Art Break: Unsolved Mystery: Exploring the Classical Physics of Van Gogh’s Art
Tuesday, December 3 | Café at 10:30 a.m. | Program at 11:00 a.m.
Columbia College Assistant Professor of Mathematics Dr. Tyler Brown explores Van Gogh’s mark-making systems seen in famous works such as Starry Night that model fluid dynamics. Fluid dynamics of turbulent water or air is still an unsolved mystery of classical physics, and Van Gogh modeled it perfectly. Dr. Brown examines these dynamics to find patterns in the work of Van Gogh and others. Begin the morning at the museum at 10:30 a.m. with pastries and coffee sold at a pop-up café from Curiosity Coffee Bar. Program starts at 11:00 a.m.
ArtBreak is a program that looks at art through a different lens. Each session features a speaker sharing their interpretation of works of art at the CMA.
