On Monday, March 25, an exhibit opened in Smith Hall at GW. The exhibit, entitled “art + evolution: exploring the creative mind,” is the product of collaboration between the Department of Fine Arts and the Center for the Advanced Study of Hominid Paleobiology (CASHP), and was curated by Roxanne Goldberg and CASHP students Kes Schroer and Serena Bianchi. It explores the origins of human creativity through the work of local DC artists, and photographs taken by CASHP members during their travels and laboratory work. Monday night, Anthropology Department professor Alison Brooks inaugurated the program with a lecture on symbolism and human evolution. On Thursday, March 28, the opening reception will be held in Smith Hall (801 22nd St) between 6:00 and 8:00 pm.
