Frogs: A Conversational Dissection

Forum Gallery


Margaret Honda's new sculpture serves as a point of departure for an interdisciplinary conversation. Join Jennifer Sheridan, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles at Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and Christopher Nygren, Assistant Professor and Director of Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, to consider the nature of the frog—from its anatomy and evolution to its moral symbolism and its role as muse to artists.

This event is free and open to the public. Please meet in the Forum Gallery.
