Harry and Mildred Remis Auditorium (Auditorium 161)
Ticket Required

How can Dutch art from the 17th century propel conversations and inspire new ways of thinking, creating, and innovating?

The Dutch have a long history of being inventors: from the microscope to Wi-Fi, Dutch inventions have helped build the modern world as we know it. Join a conversation between panelists from the art and the science worlds exploring how creation, invention, and innovation are related and necessary for growth to occur, and look at the roles the Netherlands and Greater Boston have played in creating and inventing through the centuries.

Copresented by the Center for Netherlandish Art and Netherlands Innovation Network.
