Last Saturday the Susquehanna Art Museum in Harrisburg unveiled their new exhibit, Many Visions; Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India.  The exhibit is on view in the newly renamed Beverlee and Bill Lehr Gallery until May 10, 2020.  

The exhibit features 47 drawings and paintings from contemporary artists that highlight the four major indigenous artistic traditions known to India.  The work is displayed thematically, rather than being separated into different sections based on their cultural association, to showcase the shared artistic styles and traditions of all four indigenous artistic traditions. 

Alice Anne Schawb, Executive Director, and Lauren Nye, Director of Exhibitions, from the Susquehanna Art Museum appear on Friday’s Smart Talk to discuss the new exhibit.  

Also, Friday is Valentine’s Day when the world is thinking about love or at least that’s how we have been conditioned.  On Valentine’s Day, those who aren’t in a relationship may be looking for one.

No doubt there will be some who will utilize what’s thought of as a pick-up line to attract a mate. Often, its men using language they think is catchy or clever. However, research at Bucknell University has found women also will try to attract a man they have just met with what they say, but in a different way.

Appearing on Smart Talk is Dr. T. Joel Wade, Professor of Psychology at Bucknell University, to talk about new research.
