“Art in Focus” Podcast: “Nature’s Mirror” with Environmental Studies Professors Tara Pisani Gareau and Noah P. Snyder

The McMullen Student Ambassadors are pleased to present Art in Focus, featuring an informal discussion between professors from various academic departments at Boston College. With each new episode, we aim to uncover a new perspective on the works on display, informed by research and methodologies in areas of study across the University. Each conversation will bring the exhibition’s works “into focus” as both historic records and living objects that trade in today’s cultural and economic capital.

For the third episode of Art in Focus, we have invited Professors Tara Pisani Gareau and Noah P. Snyder from the Environmental Studies Department. Each professor was asked to choose a single piece from Nature’s Mirror, and share anything and everything that strikes them as interesting or curious. They chose the works featured here.
