Empathy Through the Visual Arts

Date Of Event * Thursday, February 1, 2018
Time *
6 PM
Location *
Layton Gallery
Cost *
none
The Details *
Empathy is possible because we are human. Because we are human we can choose whether to exercise it or not. It is this human potential that we hope to encourage by bringing together the artists and their work in this exhibition. The current polarized political and cultural landscape we live in has created an urgency and relevance for the consideration and understanding of this human trait that represents the best of what we can aspire to.

Join moderator Professor Leslie Fedorchuk as she discusses the role of empathy in the visual arts with the Curator and several participating artists from HUMANLY POSSIBLE: The Empathy Exhibit, now on view in the Layton Galleries.

LRC TIp of the Week: Food for Thought on Homework Organization

Peer tutors know that sometimes prioritizing homework becomes a challenge. Some of them opt to use this strategy:

Work on the homework that you are least interested in first, that way you can finish off with something that is fun and you don’t put off the other stuff.

For additional strategies, stop in and talk to a peer tutor face-to-face. Someone is available MondayThursday, 11-6pm
