The Spirit of Truth-Seeking II
December 7, 2019 · 9:00 am—December 14, 2019 · 5:00 pm EST · Arts Council of Princeton
The Arts Council of Princeton will host an exhibit of pieces commissioned from “The Spirit of Truth-Seeking I,” in which Being Human invited local artists using any medium to capture the Friday, October 11 conversation among Princeton University Professor Robert George, Harvard University Professor Cornel West *80, and Princeton University President Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83. A closing reception will feature Professor George on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Inspired by the dialogue, the artwork will delve into the truth-seeking mission of colleges and universities. Each creation will consider the virtues needed if frontiers of knowledge are to be pushed back, understanding of complex matters is to be deepened, and wisdom is to be found. Co-sponsored by the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions.
Open to the public on Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm; closed Sundays.
This event participates in the Being Human Festival 2019 of the Humanities Council.
