The Art of Perception: Rethinking How We See

Thursday, November 2, 2017

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Jeanne d'Arc Auditorium, St. Paul Campus

What do you see when you look at a painting? How could a simple exercise cultivate your visual intelligence to help diagnose an illness or save a life?

In this public lecture, Amy Herman, art historian and author of Visual Intelligence, explores how close encounters with art can help you hone your ability to perceive and analyze the world around you. Herman's work with professionals in education, business and healthcare demonstrates that "astute observation is key to professional success."

Sponsored by the Evaleen Neufeld Initiative in the Liberal Arts and co-organized by the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health at St. Catherine University.

This is a free event — but registration is required. Reception and book signing will follow.

ASL interpretation provided.
