Installation view, "Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science" - Tang Teaching Museum, 2022

We learn this morning about "Radical Fiber: Threads Connecting Art and Science," a new exhibition at the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College which explores the influence fiber arts have had on areas of sciences as diverse as digital technology, mathematics, medicine, and neuroscience. The exhibit runs through June 12.

To tell us more, we welcome Tang Associate Curator Rebecca McNamara, who is the curator of the exhibition Radical Fiber and Sara Lagalwar, a Skidmore professor of Neuroscience who is one of the faculty consultants on the exhibition and who has been bringing her neuroscience students to the exhibition.

Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
