Cultures of Creativity: The Centennial Exhibition of the Nobel Prize is on Display at The New York Hall of Science

[8 March 2005 - New York] What is creativity and how can creative activity be encouraged? Which is more important to the creative process: the individual or the environment? The Centennial Exhibition of the Nobel Prize that will be on display in the Great Hall at the New York Hall of Science from March 12 to May 30, 2005. This exhibition examines these questions by presenting selected Laureates and atmospheres from the 100-year history of the Nobel Prize. This traveling exhibition doesn’t provide specific answers, but gives visitors the chance to think about the questions themselves. It encourages you to think in a new way, to question the world as it is and to strive for a better world, however an individual chooses to define that world. ... Among the Hands-on Discovery Tables is "Roger Sperry – left and right brain functionalization" where you can examine a realistic model of a brain, guess which animal each brain picture belongs to, and view various optical illusions.

    Creativity is the act of being creative. What is being creative, it is a state of mind. The individual is more important than the enviroment because each individual not only "see's" things a unique way, but has various mental "enviroments" and models.
