In November 2017, University of Alberta art professor Sean Caulfield was named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, joining his brother and U of A law professor Tim Caulfield, who was elected to the RSC in 2007. It’s rare, if not unheard of, for brothers to share this prestigious national recognition; rarer still, for the disciplines to be so disparate in nature.

We managed to get artist Sean and scientist Tim, together with Tim’s son Adam Caulfield (himself an Immunology major, and cellist for the University Symphony Orchestra), together to talk about how art and science can co-mingle in extraordinarily creative and collaborative ways.

For the full story from this extraordinary family (along with video clips from their conversation), head to Work of Arts.
