In the Guardian's report "Why the Arts are Essential to Science and Innovation", art correspondent Mark Brown revealed evidence that the arts and our inventive tendency are interconnected. The report quoted W. James McNerney, the CEO of Boeing, saying "The arts inspire innovation by leading us to open our minds and think in new ways about our lives - including the work we do, the way we work, and the customers we serve."
