Upcoming Public Lecture Series

Dec 7 at 5:30pm • Steinberg Auditorium

Artist, designer and animator Kelli Anderson will deliver the Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Visiting Artist Lecture.

Known for reinventing commonplace objects in ways that disrupt audience expectations, artist, designer, and animator Anderson is the creator of — among other projects — “This Book is a Camera” (2015), a pop-up book that transforms into a working camera, and “This Book is a Planetarium” (2017), which explores how paper taps into larger phenomena of light, time, sound and mathematics.
