Elizabeth Mazzolini, assistant professor in the Department of English and affiliate of the Department of Science and Technology in Society and Women's and Gender Studies at Virginia Tech, will kick off this My Take gallery talk about Jennifer Steinkamp’s digital art installation, Madame Curie, 2011. This series invites people from all walks of life to share their “take” on the art in the center’s galleries. These short talks (15 minutes) provide an inviting space for university faculty, students, and community members to experience exemplary works of art through the lenses of diverse disciplines. Join in an exchange of ideas, sparked by the galleries’ art, in a relaxed, social, and fun atmosphere. “My Take” rewards your curiosity with rich conversation among peers, deepening your enjoyment and engagement with art and its presence in our daily lives.
