Established in 1985, the Art of Science and Technology Program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science was created to further the organization's goal of increasing public engagement with science and technology. By using art as a medium for the presentation of scientific themes, the Art of Science and Technology Program is both an outreach service to the wider science community and an opportunity to make art an integral part of the everyday work environment of AAAS. Exhibiting artists have come from diverse cultural backgrounds, with a special focus on artists based in Washington, D.C.
The AAAS Art Committee formed in 2010 after the retirement of Virginia Stern, who led the art program for over two decades. Made up of staff members from across the organization, the Art Committee strives to bring thought-provoking exhibits to AAAS that will benefit the staff and the public.
