Leonardo da Vinci may be best known for his artistic masterpieces, but he was also an accomplished engineer and scientist. That mix of science and art helped inspire a local group of artists, scientists, teachers and citizens to launch the area’s first arts and science festival. BPR’s Helen Chickering caught up with one of the organizers, biologist Jason York.
Asheville’s first Arts and Science Festival will be held on Saturday, March 31 from noon to 6 p.m. at the Salvage Station. The event is free and welcomes all ages.
