Fee: free, RSVP by September 30

This lecture features Barrington Irving, the first African American to fly around the world solo and a National Geographic explorer. Irving's passion to explore, inspire, and educate others led him in 2014 to launch the Flying Classroom, a K-8 STEM+ digital curriculum that challenges students to design innovative solutions to the problems he investigates.

Before launching the Flying Classroom, Irving created a nonprofit, Experience Aviation, which offers hands-on, STEM-based programs and career guidance to middle and high school students in Florida, Texas, Georgia and Detroit.

The event also includes a panel of individuals from the aviation industry and STEM who will talk about diversity and inclusion in the industry and academics, including issues faced by women in STEM.

Sheilah Wilson: Cindy Sherman as Feminist Question Mark
Sponsor: Wexner Center for the Arts
Tuesday, 1 pm
Location: 1871 N High St, Columbus, OH 43210
Fee: free

How do we understand artist Cindy Sherman’s work in the context of feminism when she has repeatedly disavowed any relationship to feminism writ large? In this afternoon gallery talk, artist and professor Sheilah Wilson (Denison University) will look at historical and contemporary questions of intent as they relate to Sherman’s depiction of the gendered body in space.

Sheilah Wilson has exhibited her work internationally and been the subject of solo shows including If Becoming This at Antioch College, Ohio (2012); Build Your Altar to this Moment at Enjoy Gallery, New Zealand (2013); and Despair/Despair Not at Nuit Blanche, Toronto (2013). Currently associate professor of studio arts at Denison University, Wilson has been working on projects analyzing the traces between history, story, and the land.
