Details are still being finalized but listed on https://uaoh100.org  are events that will be occurring throughout 2018.

Reception May 5 6pm Talk 7pm
Dr. Mark Changizi
Technology and the arts are often described quite differently. Technology is precise, highly engineered, rigorous, and the domain of the scientifically-minded nerd. The arts are built from loose sweeps, messy intuitions, emotions, and is the realm of deep spirits. In a challenge to these stereotypes, Dr. Changizi draws from his research in cognitive science and the origins of art to explain how it is that the arts amount to technology – the most important technology humankind has yet to discover.

Artful Books

Some change the shape of the book, or use multiple books in the creation of the finished piece of art.  Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture. On view in the Concourse Gallery, altered books from artists who take the art form to new places.
