ASU News: Alda, Krauss explores science and art during ASU Origins Event, January 16, 2015

Join stage and screen legend Alan Alda and Lawrence Krauss for an intimate evening of conversation for the inaugural Origins Project Dialogue. Science and Art: Long Lost Lovers will be a candid and unscripted conversation on the importance of scientific literacy and the role of science and creativity in our society. This will make for a thought-provoking and interesting night in the beautifully restored Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix.

Alan Alda hosted Scientific American Frontiers for over ten years and starred in numerous plays, films, and television shows including Emmy Award winning roles in The West Wing and M.A.S.H.  Mr. Alda is the inspiration behind the annual Flame Challenge, where scientists are challenged to explain a basic scientific topic in language an 11 year-old can grasp. A New York Times best-selling author, Alda is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Lawrence Krauss is an author, professor, physicist, public intellectual and Director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University. He is called upon to share his views worldwide on many diverse topics and is a sought after speaker for events ranging from the World Economic Forum to the Larry King Show.
