Four in-person Open VISIONS Forum: Espresso lectures will offer insights into the world of New York's visual and performing arts.

This spring, the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts welcomes the return of in-person Open VISIONS Forum (OVF): Espresso lectures, with four fascinating "insider" looks at New York City's vibrant arts scene.

Founding OVF Director Philip Eliasoph, PhD, professor of visual and performing arts in the College of Arts and Sciences, said, “As these challenging months of Covid-19 lockdown have forced many of us to find inspiration from within, our Open VISIONS Forum: Espresso programs strive to bring us collectively back out into the world of public ideas. I'd like to think of this as an 'open classroom without walls,' with curious learners—ages 18 to 88—finding enrichment in the ongoing journey of the 'life of the mind.'”

The OVF: Espresso series’ live, in-person programming will take place at either the Quick Center or the Dolan School of Business, on the campus of Fairfield University. Advance tickets are available at www.quickcenter.com for these upcoming programs:
