In a world that is driven by high technology and specialization, it is easy to forget that people who gained mastery over multiple fields or disciplines have historically introduced the most fundamental changes in human culture.
Though commonly known as “renaissance men,” these thinkers, known as polymaths, appear in human history through every period and, in some cases, were not men at all.
This year’s Festival of Arts and Ideas will focus on The Polymath, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 and 18 in the Ballroom at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.
Both nights of the festival will be supplemented by a faculty and staff art show called Outside the Lines in the lobby outside the Ballroom that will include visual art as well as poetry and music.
Interested attendees are invited to arrive at 7 p.m. to take in the art show.
