Gallery talk led by Northwestern McCormick School of Engineering students Andy Wehmeyer (Engineering, ‘25) and Dylan Brown (PhD, Chemical Engineering) on their resequencing of Dario Robleto’s portfolio The First Time, The Heart (A Portrait of Life 1854 – 1913) for its presentation at The Block.

Explore questions and ideas raised in The Heart’s Knowledge: Science and Empathy in the Art of Dario Robleto during gallery talks presented from perspectives across disciplines—from The Block, Northwestern University, and beyond.

Programs are open to all, on a first-come first-served basis. RSVPs are not required, but appreciated, as they help us anticipate attendance numbers.


Andy Wehmeyer is a sophomore at Northwestern studying mechanical engineering. He enjoys building and flying rockets. In his free time, he attends class. Find him reading on the lakefill, climbing a tree, or flying on a rocket (someday soon).

Dylan Brown is a PhD student in Northwestern’s Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. He graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BS in chemical engineering and North Carolina State University with an MS in forest biomaterials. At Northwestern, Dylan works on developing simple biological devices for detecting environmental contaminants to create technologies that allow people to easily gain information about water quality. Throughout his educational journey, he has been interested in the interface of art and science, how philosophies from each field can be used to advance the other, and how art can be a tool to increase societal engagement with new scientific topics.
