Family Weekend: Artists Panel

A quick reminder about this Friday’s Family Weekend panel discussion, entitled “Why Keep the Arts in the Liberal Arts?”, to be held from 2.45 to 4.30 pm in Rose Hills Theatre.

Given the importance of the arts in the college’s Strategic Plan, the Parents Counci has brought together a panel of parents who have led distinguished careers in the arts, asking them to speak together about their work, their career paths, and the role of the arts in the liberal arts. The panelists include:

Charles Arnoldi (painter and sculptor)
Katie Arnoldi (novelist)
Thomas Hurwitz (cinematographer)
Avon Kirkland (filmmaker)

The panelists have also made themselves available for individual events to discuss their work in more detail: Avon Kirkland will screen and discuss his work Thursday at 4.15, in Edmunds 101; Charles Arnoldi will meet with students and discuss his work Thursday at 4.30, in Lebus 110; and Tom Hurwitz will screen and discuss his work with students next Monday at 4.00, in Steele 5 (on the Scripps campus).

More details about the panelists are included below. I’ll hope to see you there!
