Sarah Sze Patzy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Lecture
November 2, 7 pm. Nasher Sculpture Center
Registration required: art.unt.edu/nasher-lecture

There is a bus going from the Art Building to the Nasher and back that evening. You have the opportunity to indicate whether you'd like to ride the bus when you register for a seat. Gather in the Lightwell of the building. The bus will leave at 4:30 and return by 10:00 pm. Once all the seats have been claimed, we will begin a waiting list. I'd ask those of you who have a seat you will not use to let us know so we can offer it to someone on the waiting list.
