As a freshman, Jarrod Russo, a biology major from St. Louis, thought research was daunting. When he applied to be a part of the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (ASH) program’s The Art of Death research team, he didn’t think he stood a chance at being accepted.
To his surprise, he was invited to join the team within two weeks.
The Art of Death explores viewers’ reactions to death imagery in the arts by combining digital storytelling, psychology and art history. “Personally, I’ve found that accepting death is difficult, and the concept is a tough one to grapple with,” Russo said.
Now a senior, Russo looks back on his time working on the project and is excited to share the exhibit with the Mizzou community.
“When I look back at the three years of research I did through ASH Art of Death, I feel lucky,” he said. “I got to meet some seriously interesting and impressive professors and students alike. The ASH program was a great experience for me all around, and I am more than happy I was a part of it.”
The Art of Death exhibit at the MU Museum of Art & Archeology runs through Oct. 18.
