Regular object-based roundtables engage humanities and science faculty in lively discussion around art from the Smart's collection.
Typically, the interdisciplinary discussion is grounded by a handful of objects and brief presentations by two to three faculty members. The workshops center on diverse topics such as material, scale, beauty, and atmosphere.
Faculty from over 14 departments have participated in sessions to date.
