The UC Davis Art-Science Fusion Program is the brainchild of Professor of Entomology Diane Ullman and ceramics artist Donna Billick, locally known for her The Dancing Pigs and Cow Fountain pieces located at The Marketplace and the sculpture entitled Mediation (art) in Central Park Gardens. The program has recently received a great amount of publicity. They are housed in the Environmental Horticulture Building.
Some of the public art that has been born out of this program includes:
- Tree of Life Mosaic Fall 2006
- Early Childhood Laboratory Mural Fall 2007
- A Street Bridge Mural Winter 2008
- Nature's Gallery Court created 2008, installed a few years later after being displayed at the U.S. Botanical Garden in Washington, D.C.
