Speaker Series 2015 Kickoff: Dan Jacobs AB '81
Please join us Tuesday, February 10th for the Club's 2015 Speaker Series kickoff. Harvard alumnus and current DU art professor Dan Jacobs '81 will discuss the reclamation of an 80-year-old, long-lost DU campus Shakespeare mural.
"Reclaiming Campus Memories: John Thompson's "Shakespeare Mural" and the role of visual art in campus memory at the University of Denver"
A great university campus is not only a place of learning, but also a place where important social bonds are formed for the good of students, alumni and the community at large. Visual art and the built environment play an important role in this process, providing the setting for long-lasting memories and attachments. The story of the rediscovery and restoration of an important artwork on the University of Denver campus illustrates the power and potential of visual art and architecture on campus.
From the lot, walk northeast toward the intersection of University and Evans. As you near the road, you will pass between the Daniels College of Business on your right and Margery Reed Hall on your left. The Reiman Theater is in Margery Reed Hall, immediately in front of you when you enter.
If parking in Lot 304N lacks, there is a public parking lot on the southeast corner of University and Evans.
