Graphic for production of Muse by Gaven Bell

This 2022 Creative Artist Award-winning one-act play is a contemporary rendition of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth exploring the relationship between art and science as Finn, a microbiologist, grieves the loss of Eurydice, the artist no longer by his side.

Gaven Bell is a senior majoring in biological sciences with a concentration in integrative physiology and neurobiology and minors in science communication and theatre.
