Attend the Inaugural Thought Partners Conversation Series Event at the Weisman Museum This Wednesday
On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at Noon, Seaver College studio art faculty Gretchen Batcheller, John Emison, and Kate Parsons will explore art and faith at Pepperdine as part of Thought Partners, an ongoing conversation series that invites scholars, artists, philanthropists, and curators who bridge these spheres of inquiry in novel ways that can inform the future of the Weisman and its place on the Pepperdine campus.
On Thursday, October 13, 2022, at Noon, curator Rotem Rozental, executive director of the Los Angeles Center of Photography and previously the chief curator and senior director of arts and creative programming at the American Jewish University, will discuss Judaism, creative identity, and contemporary art. Patrick A. Polk, curator of Caribbean and Latin American popular arts at the UCLA Fowler Museum and a lecturer in the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance, will discuss lived religion, sacred space, and shrine-building in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 2, 2022, at Noon. Additional programming will be announced throughout the academic year.
All programs are free and open to the public, and advance reservations are not required. Conversations will be held on the second floor of the Weisman Museum unless otherwise noted. For more information, visit the Weisman Museum website.
