Watermill Center unveils its Scaler Lecture Series line-up, an annual series featuring distinguished scholars, artists and thinkers invited by Robert Wilson to speak on topics ranging across the arts and sciences. This year's lecturers include Kinan Azmeh (August 2), BG Muhn (August 4), Carl Schoonover (August 9), Wesley Enoch (August 10), Dr. Cornel West (August 16), and Mary Ellen Carroll (August 18). Aligning with Watermill Center’s mission to encourage creative experimentation, these innovators join the growing list of noteable sperakers, including Nadya Tolokonnikova, Fern Mallis, Philip Glass and Tom Hennes from prior years.
Lectures are presented midweek and space is limited. Spots in the free series tend to "sell out" quickly. Click here to reserve.
