In honor of award-winning writer and physicist Dr. Janna Levin’s visit to Ball State University for her talk in Sursa Hall on October 20 at 7:30 p.m., a team of faculty and staff invited Ball State students to submit original pieces of art, poetry, short writings, film and music that celebrates the Webb telescope and team, and the human propensity to ask deep, difficult questions while gazing at the stars. Pieces were chosen by a team of faculty and students to be performed at the Charles W. Brown Planetarium during this unique event on Oct. 19. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with Dr. Levin about her career and efforts to bridge the perceived gaps between art and science. Have an idea to pitch?
