Cannot agree with art and science being the same! Three main reasons:

1You do not necessarily need any educating or training in the subject 
to enjoy, or even perform, art.  Singers are born with a gift, just 
like ball-players.  so are those who can draw.  Sure most of us can 
do a bit with tuition and training.

2 People in arts and science can discuss arts with equal intellect and 
knowledge.  Arts people cannot discuss science without specialist 
knowledge (and, probably, training)

3 Science is like an ever expanding pyramid.  It is all built on 
knowledge that has been established before (and that really means 
established, not guessed or opined).  The essence of science is to try 
and disprove a hypothesis or theory.  Art is like it or not.

Two different things - reality and abstract, fact and figmentation

There speaks a self-opinionated scientist (I hope!)
ps, I like art.
pps I love science
