Memory is a powerful tool. Performances, architecture and visual art serve as cultural repositories, carrying stories and experiences through the ages and affecting people’s view on the world. The College of Fine and Applied Arts will present a thought-provoking discussion about memory at its next Uncorked and On Topic at 5:15 p.m. Feb. 4 in the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts Tryon Festival Theatre foyer.
The event will explore “Memory” through the eyes of two faculty members, Ollie Watts Davis, a professor of music, and Jeffery Poss, a professor of architecture. The scholars will explore the strong role that art plays in collective and individual memory. The moderator for this event will be Kevin Hamilton, a professor of art and design and the senior associate dean in the College of Fine and Applied Arts.
Uncorked and On Topic is in its second year, featuring faculty of different disciplines engaging in an intellectual exchange about the arts. Future programs are scheduled for March 3 on “Mastery” and April 14 on “Mega.” The events are free and open to the public.
