Date/Time: 
Tuesday, August 28, 2018 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Contemporary artist Julie Heffernan will speak about her life and work, discussing the occasionally oblique connections between past events and later paintings, as well as the importance of powerful imagery in art history to a capacious mind. There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition and meet the artist, a reception following the lecture, and a film screening at 7:00 p.m. of "Managing Risk in a Changing Climate."

The lecture and film are co-sponsored by the Penn State School of Visual Arts John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series, Sustainability Institute, and the Institutes of Energy and the Environment.
