Internationally respected sculptor Otto Piene succeeded Professor Gyorgy Kepes as director of the CAVS at MIT in 1974. In his nearly 20 years as director of the Center, Piene built on the legacy of Kepes by fostering a creative collaboration of artists, scientists, and engineers at the center, including Stan VanDerBeek.  Piene will share his thoughts on VanDerBeek’s work in the context of the Center’s mission.

This discussion will take place in Bartos Theatre.
