Artist, activist and community planner Theaster Gates, Jr. (BS 1996 Community & Regional Planning / MA 2005 Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies), Chicago, will share key lessons on his personal experience and career, from his time as an undergraduate planning student at Iowa State to the complex ecology of his current artistic practice. Both informative and performative, his presentation will embody what it means to pursue a vocation in the arts.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with students and faculty.

See Gates' alumni portrait by Jim Heemstra in the VISIONS Across America exhibit at the Brunnier Art Museum this month.
