UW Humanities and Arts Division faculty and respected local experts join together for a fast-paced evening of discovery. In this "short takes" event, each speaker will spend five minutes exploring the ancient tale of Orpheus and Eurydice through his or her own unique perspective -- including visuals. Join us and reimagine this legend through the lenses of music, art, geology, literature, religion, cinema and more.
