Festival of Arts & Ideas - Contemplating Beauty

7:30 PM Feb 13, 2012 | Ballroom

Timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day, the University of Science and Arts presents the two-day, Spring 2012 Festival of Arts and Ideas: Contemplating Beauty.

The concept of ‘beauty’ is one that has been a part of human culture since the dawn of history. The idea of what is beautiful has changed dramatically over the millennia. Join us as we take a look at this most fundamental of human concepts through the lens of multiple disciplines and perspectives.

Presenters include Dr. Brenda Brown, Dr. J.C. Casey, Dr. Jan Hanson, Dr. Jerry Hargis, Dr. Sean Kelley, Leah Oxenford, Dr. Allison Palmer (of the University of Oklahoma), Dr. Zachary Simpson, Dr. Quan Tran and Dr. Stephen Weber.

As always, attending the Festival of Arts and Ideas provides free professional development points/hours for educators. Certificates will be available at the end of each night.

The second night (Valentine's Day) will close with a dance featuring swing, jazz, blues, rock and roll and rhythm and blues music. The band will feature Joe and Donna Settlemires, Dr. Dan Hanson, Rhenada Finch and Rob Vollmar as well as a number of guest singers. 

Both nights begin at 7:30 p.m. in the USAO Ballroom. Refreshments provided.
