Subject: New episode of FRONTIERS airs 2/18!

Dear Science Enthusiast,

When you play a glass harmonica, do ghosts appear? When a sculpture is
restored, who speaks for the sculptor? When a computer creates a painting,
is it art? When a digital actor speaks, who's doing the acting?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN
FRONTIERS special, "The Art of Science," airing Wednesday, February 18 at 8
p.m. ET on PBS (please check your local listings to confirm date and time in
your area). Take a journey with host Alan Alda to the places where music,
painting, sculpture, and other arts meet modern technology. Sponsored by the
GTE Corporation, FRONTIERS is all about answers to intriguing questions
scientists at the forefront of discovery are asking!

Before and after every episode of FRONTIERS, be sure to visit our Web site
