Whether you're a total non-science person or the next Einstein, the Science and Art Cabaret was made for you.

Sponsored by the University at Buffalo and Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, the Science and Art Cabaret will be held from 7-9 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2009) in the Ninth Ward at Babeville's Asbury Hall, 341 Delaware Ave.

Admission is free and open to the public; a cash bar will be available.

The topic will be "Taking Nature Apart," and UB's scientists and artists will be weighing in while audience members join in and enjoy live music and poetry.

The Science and Art Cabaret is part of the Café Scientifique movement that has swept the U.S. and Europe; this is Buffalo's first.

The panel will feature UB physicists Will H. Kinney and Ulrich Baur; and Katharina Dittmar de la Cruz, UB assistant professor of biological sciences; and Gary Nickard, UB clinical assistant professor of visual studies.

Local artist Patty Wallace will do a reading and live music will be provided by The Vores (unplugged), Buffalo's late '70s alternative band, whose music is described as a combination of punk rock and surfer, and which features several UB folks.
