A SEAD White Paper has been posted for comment and discussion:
Opportunities and Obstacles Facing Scientists, Mathematicians, and Engineers Deeply Engaged in the Arts and Design by Carol Strohecker, Roger Malina, and Wendy Silk and is available here.
The White Paper resulted from interviews with 20 scientists : 7 women and 13 men. All the responding scientists have been working collaboratively with artists and/or designers for 5 years or more, some for as long as 20 years or more, with one reporting such collaboration dating back about 50 years.
