Silicon Valley Nexus: Art/Science/Technology Meetup www.meetup.com/svnexus

It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing” – Steve Jobs, 2011 This Meetup is for those interested in the nexus of Arts, Sciences and Technologies, a combination which so often produces practical and aesthetic works which delight us. Come drink champagne, listen to interesting speakers, and mingle with like minded people in an elegant gallery setting at the Nature Gallery in Los Altos. Join us, have some fun, and explore how art informs science, science informs art, and technology brings both to life. It’s free to become a member of SVNexus, event cost is $10-$25 and includes sparkling wine, yummy eats and a great speaker!
