Moderated by John Paul Ricco

Featuring: Bill Ayers, Krešimir Prugar, Terry Smith, and Orrin Wang

Show and Tell (4-5pm)

MC: Hannah B Higgins

Bring an image or object, show it and tell us about it!

At the juncture of seeing and saying, Mitchell’s pedagogical exercise of “Show and Tell” has taken two generations of students through the ekphrastic pathways of visual culture. Here’s your opportunity to bring an object or image (could be anything...but must be fun!) and talk about it as emblematic of Tom’s books, seminars, friendship or one of his hobbies.

If you are interested in participating please indicate by email to Higgins.Hannah.b@gmail.com
