Visual arts professor has lecture, symposium set

By Staff

UC Denver Assistant Professor of Visual Arts Maria Buszek spoke on Monday, Oct. 4, at the University of Nebraska Department of Art and Art History as part of its "Year of the Woman" programming, which also will include legendary artists Orlan, Martha Rosler and Carrie Mae Weems. Her lecture, titled "Personal, Political, Popular Culture: Confronting Some Issues in Feminist Art," critiqued feminist art scholars' difficulty with addressing feminist popular culture and activism as related to the lingering classism in the field of art history.

Next she'll help moderate "Crossing Boundaries: A Symposium on Feminism and the Arts," set for 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Oct. 15 at Colorado College's Gaylord Hall, Worner Center, 902 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs. Tickets to the lunch are $15; e-mail or call 719-389-6066 to make a reservation, which is required.
