    That depends entirely on what you consider to be art.

    I'm a musician, if that helps.

    My Chemistry teacher always says, "If you're an artist, theres a place for you in science." Whether it is depicting what a chemist is describing or his discovered or etc, I think he is right.

    I am an artist, i hav some of my work on the net, check the art and culture section 3rd from the top, i really need to update it but don't have the time. Art is vital to science, think of the renaissance

    Artist's impressions are valuable in science, they help the lay people understand what science is trying to achieve in the long run, it does not always come to fruition, but that's the scientist's and not the artist's fault.

    We can apply both science and art to everything that we do. The science is the knowing how to do it, the art is in its application and expression that comes from an expression of the ego.
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    I read an interesting story about an artist who uses math and specially polynomials to make art. He used some kind of computer programme to make amazing and colourfull "paintings".
    So as the art and artists are important to science, can science be used to make art.
