Carnegie Mellon Research Fellow Stephanie Flom Presents At "Mayflies and Matisse" Weekend Program, June 11-12

PITTSBURGH—Stephanie Flom, research fellow at Carnegie Mellon University's STUDIO for Creative Inquiry and director of the Persephone Project, along with psychologist Paul Pitts, Ph.D., will participate in a weekend program, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Jung Society, to explore how Flom's experiences with her imaginative mayfly art illustrate individuation.

On Friday, June 11, Flom will lecture about the process through which she created her mayfly drawings and cutouts. Pitts will follow Flom's lecture with a Jungian analysis of her experience. The lecture will be held from 810 p.m. in the Beckwith Lecture Room in Buhl Hall at Chatham College. The Saturday, June 12, workshop will focus on symbolism, mythology and local ecology. Flom will present specific information about mayflies and about the mythical Rusalka. Again, Pitts will follow with the Jungian perspective on these myths and transformations. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m.1:30 p.m. at the Lehner Grain and Cider Mill in Verona.

Fees for the public lecture on Friday, June 11, are as follows: $10 members, $12 non-members, and $5 students/seniors. Fees for the public workshop on Saturday, June 12, are as follows: $30 members, $40 non-members and $10 students/seniors. For reservations call 412-682-8172 x3.
