Art Talk: Rebecca Solnit

An Art Talk by author, cultural historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit will be tonight at the Art Museum beginning at 7 pm. A book signing and reception will follow.

UW Eminent Writer in Residence through the MFA Creative Writing Program, Solnit will discuss her month-long efforts with university students and members of the Laramie community to “remap” the community and its resources. An echo of Solnit’s work on the “Infinite City” project in San Francisco in 2010, the Laramie Atlas Project is a unique opportunity for artist, writers, citizens, and students to rethink—and reimagine—their neighborhoods. Please join Solnit, one of the most original scholars of America and its arts, in this presentation of the Laramie she and her collaborators have mapped so far.

This event is free and open to the public.
