On Monday at 6 p.m., East Jefferson Wellness Center instructor Terry Rappold leads relaxing Tai Chi exercises in various art galleries at… 6 Wednesday Al-Mizan ‘Al-Mizan’ is the Arabic word for balance - both the familiar measuring instrument and the metaphorical pursuit of justice and harmony in all human endeavours. For hundreds of years after the advent of Islam, Arabic was the language in which mathematics and science were most actively studied. The intellectual achievements of scholars in the Islamic world were matched by the emergence of a highly distinctive visual and artistic culture. This exhibition explores the connections between the sciences and arts in Muslim societies. It presents highlights from the Museum’s collection of Islamic scientific instruments alongside medieval manuscripts, metalwork and ceramics on loan from other major collections.

The Use of Visual Information in Art Acknowledgments: I would like to thank Nicolas Pioch for his excellent work on Le WEBLouvre where many of these images have been maintained. In addition to providing an excellent collection of art images that I have used extensively, he has been very helpful in tracking down specific pieces and genres to help illustrate certain points that I have discussed in these pages. I also wish to thank Efthimios Mavrogeorgiadis and Dave Vezie for their development of the Orthodox page with its collection of icons that I used for the section on how icons represent depth. Lastly, but in no way the least, I wish to acknowledge Margaret Krantz for her invaluable help as proofreader, editor, and critic of the efforts here.

Expeditions and Discoveries - Sponsore The fourth in a series of online collections from Harvard University, Expeditions and Discoveries delivers maps, photographs, and published materials, as well as field notes, letters, and a unique range of manuscript materials on selected expeditions between 1626 and 1953. The collection is made possible with the generous support of the Arcadia Fund. In the 19th and 20th centuries, Harvard University played a significant role—as underwriter, participant, collector, and repository—for pace-setting expeditions around the world. For Internet users, Expeditions and Discoveries provides selective access to Harvard’s multidisciplinary records of those expeditions. Created by the Harvard University Library’s Open Collections Program, Expeditions and Discoveries offers important—often unique—historical resources for students of anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, botany, geography, geology, medicine, oceanography, and zoology.
