The Nasher Museum took part in Duke’s “Bass Connections: Brain & Society” endeavor with a multidisciplinary research project involving Duke undergraduate students. The team, including Marianne Wardle, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Programs and Head of Education & Interpretation, organized the installation Seeing Color: Art, Vision, and the Brain, which explored color and brightness in art and the visual system. The project culminated with an international symposium at the museum.
