While a current and former educator, I used to question why the work of fine artists is displayed at the Museum of Science and Industry rather than at an institute of art, an art museum or gallery. Later I learned that our public schools have targeted a STEM curriculum. Then the art world promoted the STEAM curriculum which is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Fair enough…but the arts have always been Scientific, Technological, Engineered, and Mathematical. That is how the arts work! When schools focus only on STEM their curriculum is incomplete. It is impossible to eliminate the arts. – P. J. Stewart
