‘Next Steps’ – Visits to Studios & Laboratories

next steps

ARC is happy to announce that our very first ‘Next Steps’ session took place last Thursday, December 11th. The group visited the studio of Michael Krueger (pictured) and the labs of Town Peterson and Sandi Beard. It was fantastic to hear about what Michael has been working on while being a ¬†creative fellow at the Hall Center for Humanities as well as Town’s important work on mapping the Ebola virus in Africa, and Sandi’s work on the archeology of horses in the cultures of Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia. It was great that all three of these scholars were willing and able to present their work and working environment. Thanks to all who came out and we hope to have another session soon.
