Nichols Theatre, Student Center

Artist Talk: Matthew Klein - American photographer Matthew Klein is respected for both his fine art and commercial work.

The artist talk will include a slide presentation in Nichols Theatre and Q&A in front of Klein’s large-scale photographs displayed in Main Hall. This program is presented to celebrate the extension of the satellite installation of Threatening Beauty, on view in Main Hall through the spring. Free and open to the public.
