Perlman Teaching Museum Exhibit Featured on Minnesota Public Radio

January 26, 2012

The 1/25/12 edition of "All Things Considered" on Minnesota Public Radio includes a feature story on the current Perlman Teaching Museum exhibit, "Running the Numbers," on display through March 11 in the Kaemmer Family Gallery in the Weitz Center for Creativity. "Running the Numbers: Portraits of Mass Consumption" is the work of Seattle artist Chris Jordan, who presents huge color photographs -- assembled from thousands of smaller photographs -- based on statistical facts about American consumer culture. 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.
