The Art of Curiosity

50 Visionary Artists, Scientists, Poets, Makers & Dreamers Who Are Changing the Way We See Our World

Written By: The Exploratorium
What do music visionary Brian Eno, kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen, science writer Mary Roach, Mythbuster Adam Savage, and Pulitzer-winning journalist Thomas Friedman have in common? They are all game-changers: scientists, artists, entertainers, and activists who revolutionized their fields with bold new perspectives and approaches—and they all had transformative, course-setting experiences at the Exploratorium.

Join them and 45 more brilliant thinkers and doers in a wonderfully playful, insightful, and sometimes incredibly moving journey to see how you, too, can harness your powers of observation, inquiry, and engagement to be the change you want to see in the world—regardless of who you are or what you do.

Packed with dozens of interviews, insights, and activities suggested by artists, scientists, poets, and politicians, this is a book that’s guaranteed to make you a more creative person. And maybe just change the world.
