Touring the Senses

March 2–March 23, Thursdays, 4–5 p.m. @ Various NMC locations


Curiosities, the library’s ongoing “un-book club” takes on the wondrous world of the senses! Special guest hosts will help us explore our tools of perception through the lenses of visual arts, culinary arts, audio tech, adaptation and neurodiversity. Each discussion session will feature an interactive sensory experience at different locations across NMC.

  • Explore how our eyes and brain work together to make meaning of art at the Dennos Museum Center with featured co-host Craig Hadley, Museum Director
  • Experience taste, smell and flavor at Lobdell’s with Jim Morse, Culinary Instructor
  • Learn about neurodiverse sensory experience and tools for adaption with Leanne Baumeler, Director of Disability Services
  • See, hear and play with sound waves with Maria Ulrich, Audio Tech Instructor

Registrants will receive the full syllabus of materials, which includes an hour or less of reading, watching or listening time for each week. Register now to participate in this free series!
