Dr. Zach Simpson (right) holds class in the functional art installation known as The Circle. Simpson will present research from his first book, Life as Art: Aesthetic and the Creation of Self beginning at 7:30 p.m. on April 2 in room 124 of Davis Hall. A book signing will follow the presentation. Both events are free and open to the public.

The time was the middle of the nineteenth century. Long-standing monarchies all over Europe were crumbling. New ideas about science and society undermined commonly held ideas about the human condition that had persisted for millennia. The great thinkers of that time and the decades that followed groped insistently for some bedrock concept upon which they could base their quest for meaning.

Dr. Zach Simpson explores this search for an alternative to certainty in his first book, Life as Art: Aesthetics and the Creation of Self. Simpson is scheduled to share excerpts and observations from his research beginning at 7:30 p.m. on April 2 in room 124 of Davis Hall.

Dr. Sandra Mayfield (left), Lyle Novinski (center) and Dr. Michael Thompson will join keynote speaker Dr. Elaine Pagels for a panel discussion on the relationship between Christianity and art as part of the 2013. Emerson-Wier Liberal Arts Symposium. The panel is scheduled to convene at 2 p.m. in the USAO Ballroom on March 7

Since early humans first began to capture their impressions of the world around them in charcoal on the walls of caves, the urge to create art has been bound up in religious and spiritual impulses.

Though modern art addresses secular interests more than in times past, the history of art — whether painting, literature, poetry or music — has been woven into the history of religion.

Four scholars will come together for a panel discussion about the role of Christianity in history and art beginning at 2 p.m. on March 7 in the USAO Ballroom as part of the 7th Annual Emerson-Wier Liberal Arts Symposium at the University of Science and Arts.

The world-famous Texas Boys Choir performs in Chickasha beginning at 7:30 p.m. on March 1 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium. The choir will visit Lincoln Elemetary for a free performance earlier in the day.

In a world of manufactured pop idols and half-hit wonders, who bothers to learn how to sing anymore?

Just south of the Red River, the Texas Boys Choir maintains a time-honored tradition of training boys in the art of choral singing through adulthood. The result is what composer Igor Stravinsky referred to as “the best boys choir in the world.”

The Texas Boys Choir is scheduled to perform beginning at 7:30 p.m. on March 1 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium as part of the Davis Waldorf Performing Arts Series.
