Engagements with Mary Shelley’s Masterpiece: A Sample of Student Work and Images from the Festival

Are you curious about Mary Shelley’s text and its renewed relevance to multiple disciplines in the 21st century? Through this art exhibit, you may encounter Frankenstein for the first time; or you may engage with the Fenway Frankenstein Festival for the first time.  Come see how a few Wentworth students have reimagined the story for today in the artistic responses that the book and the festival inspired. Our celebration of the novel’s bicentennial included all the other schools from the Colleges of the Fenway and was supported by faculty in multiple departments here at WIT.  The exhibit is open to the public and will run through Jan. 8, 2019.  For more information about exhibits please contact libraryexhibits@wit.edu.

Here are the slides that complement the exhibit of student photographs, artwork, and poetry. For even more images please take a look at Wentworth’s news story.
