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.”
