A VCU libraries group visited the new FUTURES exhibit by the Smithsonian Friday, March 11. A special guided tour was provided by VCU alum Michelle Koppl (BFA ’18/A) who formerly worked at VCU ICA. A group of VCU alumni, library supporters and VCU parents joined us for the tour.

FUTURES was an immersive tour featuring new technology and interactive exhibits. The highlight of the tour was the hundreds of 3D-printed figures of women in STEM. Featured in the photo is Jaye C. Gardiner, Ph.D. She continues to work on her research at Fox Chase Cancer Center laboratory. Her research focuses on understanding the signaling that arises from cell-cell interactions in the pancreatic tumor microenvironment.

Thank you to those who were able to join us for the tour! If you would like to see the exhibit, FUTURES is free and open to the public through July 6.
