Jeff will hold his talk among the artworks of the Western Gallery's current exhibition Looking Up: The Skyviewing Sculptures of Isamu Noguchi.
The Perspectives series invites WWU scholars from a range of backgrounds and interests to lead informal 45-minute discussions inspired by the current exhibition. The series emphasizes the unique ability of the arts to stimulate interdisciplinary connections and conversations. Perspectives are free and open to the public.
