If you’re planning on attending UVic’s upcoming Homecoming Weekend at the end of September, be sure to visit the Faculty of Fine Arts, where we have a number of fascinating events planned for visitors. But you don’t have to wait until the main events get underway on September 28 & 29—we’re so keen on our side of the Ring that we’re starting a few days early!
It all kicks it all off on September 26 with a pair ofVisiting Artist Talksfeaturing Luigi Ferrara andSusan MacWilliam. Ferrara—an acclaimed architect, designer, entrepreneur, educator and director of theInstitute Without Boundaries—comes to us as part of his participation in History in Art’s annual Faculty Research Symposium (more on that below). MacWilliam—a noted Belfast artist who has an ongoing study of significant events in the history of paranormal research—is in town for a pair of shows at Open Space, F-L-A-M-M-A-R-I-O-N and Persistent Personalities. Join Ferrara and MacWilliam at 6:30pm Wednesday, September 26, in room A162 of the Visual Arts building. There will even be a bar on hand so attendees can get a drink between sessions!
