Creativity in the
Environment

Sandbox: Creativity in the Natural Environment. Washington College's initiative for interdisciplinary collaboration merging art and science.

SANDBOX draws students and faculty from the Departments of Art and Art HistoryMusicDramaLiterature, the Humanities, and the Natural Sciences, and welcomes participation from other academic departments. Outreach in the form of collaborations with surrounding art museums and institutions is also an important component of this new program.

Each fall the program welcomes a Distinguished Visitor who collaborates with a member of the Washington College faculty. The end result is a unique project that incorporates and addresses environmental concerns unique to Chestertown or the Chester river region. Through Sandstorms (experimental events teaming creative minds from different disciplines), lectures, films, and course development, SANDBOX works within the academic structure to focus attention on those opportunities afforded by collaboration

 

SANDBOX is funded by a grant from the 
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
