Event description

Description

Choose your adventure at the Hopewell Valley Arts Council's "get smART Luncheon Learn" on June 16 at Princeton University's historic and beautiful Prospect House and Garden.

  • Remembering the Sounds through the lens with photographer Benoit Cortet, former assistant and studio manager for Annie Liebovitz, and a noted portrait and commercial photographer for leading magazines. Followed by a docent-led tour of the exhibit Revealing Pictures: Photographs from the Christopher E. Olofson Collection at the Princeton University Art Museum.
  • The Art of Thinking: Neuroscience & Politics with Princeton University Professor of Molecular Biology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute Sam Wang, followed by a docent-led tour of Art of Science, a curated selection of photographs and video images drawn from the world of science.
  • Princeton: The Evolution of a Campus and its Landscape with Princeton University Associate Director of Grounds & Landscaping Devin Livi. Livi himself will lead a tour of Prospect Garden and the north campus after the luncheon.

Each program includes a private, catered lunch at Princeton University's historic and beautiful Prospect House & Garden, the former residence of Princeton University presidents including Woodrow Wilson (FUN FACT: Wilson's wife, Ellen, designed the beautiful garden in the shape of Princeton's shield); a talk of your choosing from the selection above; plus, after lunch, you are invited to join an optional walking tour that's been selected to compliment your lunchtime learning experience.

Registration and self-guided tours of Prospect Garden begin at 11:30. Lunch begins promptly at noon; speakers will end around 1:30.

Optional after-lunch walking tours as listed above with your "adventure" will leave Prospect House at 1:45 and end by 3pm. (You, of course, may leave at any time.)

Proceeds of this event will go toward scholarships for Hopewell Valley Central High School seniors who continue to study any aspect of the arts in college, and to further the HV Arts Council's activities to support art appreciation and participation in the everyday in Hopewell Valley.
