Lectures, lectures (and talks) everywhere!

Happy almost Spring! Before the hot air blows for real come out and hear these Spring-time lecturers talk about their work. The events are free and open to the public but in some cases consider getting there early because rooms are small and crowds may be big. Thank you, Philly’s art schools for rounding up the talent for us. No doubt I missed some things. Anything juicy…feel free to add it in the comments. PS. I cherry-picked what I’m interested in so if you want to see the whole lineup for each school be sure to click on the link to the college’s website for more.
