The twenty-first century will be the century of play

More than 1,000 artists are affiliated with this art movement, and it is redundant to duplicate the represented artists of the site in this list. Most artists who work with science centers, such as the Exploratorium in San Francisco, the Technorama in Winterthur, Switzerland and with numerous science museums around the globe are part of the movement. But many artists made significant additional contributions in terms of writing and various initiatives beyond their art work, also other professionals made such contributions, and these visionaries are listed in this list.
