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.
