Saturday we hosted a great preview of What’s your Mantra? An Exploration in Academic and Creative Identities by visiting Hardman Family Endowment scholar and artist Alke Groppel-Wegener. Alke made her famous chocolate marzipan pistachio cake. Conversation flowed. Guests created stamped compositions. Over the next few weeks we will invite visitors to the exhibit to contribute different creations that reflect their understand of their identities as well as the different phrases or mantras that guide us through our days. We hope you will take part!
