Event Navigation

This lecture, originally scheduled for October 29, has been postponed to February 4. The lecture will now take place in McConomy Auditorium.

Spanish artist Jaume Plensa creates sculptures and installations that aim to unify individuals through connections of spirituality, the body, and collective memory. Plensa’s work in steel, glass, stone, light, water, sound, and other materials can be found in public spaces around the globe, including at Bonaventure Gateway in Montreal, Millennium Park in Chicago, BBC Broadcasting Tower in London, and Shanghai IFC Mall, among many others. He is the recipient of numerous international awards including the Medaille de Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, awarded by the French Ministry of Culture, and the Velázquez Prize for the Arts, awarded by the Spanish Minister of Culture.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
