"On Beauty, the Limit, and Failure"

A presentation by Chancellor's Distinguished Guest Michael Jones McKean

6 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in Brookens Auditorium

McKean's lecture will focus on his own research and work as they relate to specific individuals throughout history who have been intensely driven by quests that ultimately ended in failure.

His installation project "The sunshine of our last day," built specially for this exhibit, is on display in the Visual Arts Gallery through March 27.
