Video: Farragut North Opens at Weitz Center for Creativity17 February 2012
“Farragut North,” loosely based on Howard Dean’s 2004 Democratic primary campaign, opened this past weekend at the Weitz Center for Creativity. Directed by associate professor of theater David Wiles, the play is billed as “a classic tale of hubris set against a contemporary landscape—about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it.” Presented by the Carleton Players, a video trailer of the production is available. Tickets for the performance, which continues February 24-25, are available online.

The story on Minnesota Public Radio features Laurel Bradley, director and curator of the Perlman Teaching Museum, and Neil Lutsky, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Psychology, who first encountered Jordan’s artwork in 2010, and was impressed by the way in which it found creative ways to present quantitative data.
Northfield News Covers Collaboration Between Middle School, Carleton Students24 January 2012
The Jan. 24 edition of the Northfield News covered a neat collaboration between William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Psychology Neil Lutsky’s class and Northfield Middle School students around the new Perlman Teaching Museum’s exhibit, “Running the Numbers” by photographer Chris Jordan. “What they did was, they sat with their Carleton student and brainstormed about big numbers that had some relevance to their lives,” said John Bade, NMS art teacher. Bade had about 65 students participate in the art project, divided into 17 groups with one Carleton student assigned to each group. Lutsky’s students were responsible for trying to find a way to represent the large statistics they had found. “They liked having that college student in the classroom,” Bade said. “And the kids Neil (Lutsky) brought over were very engaging.”
