Attendees Invited to Use Twitter at Oct. 2 Martinez Celaya Lecture
Omaha - When University of Nebraska Visiting Presidential Professor Enrique Martinez Celaya solicits questions at his Friday, Oct. 2 lecture at the Joslyn Art Museum, he’ll do so not only from the audience but from the World Wide Web.
Attendees are invited to use Twitter to ask Martinez Celaya questions, either prior to the 7 p.m. lecture or during the lecture from their cell phones. Simply end each tweet with #joslyn to add it to the queue on Friday. Organizers will monitor Twitter during the lecture and pose these questions to Martinez Celaya. Questions can also be asked from the audience.
Additionally, those unable to attend the Friday night lecture can follow the discussion in real time at the UNO Twitter account: http://twitter.com/unomaha
Titled “The Prophet,” Martinez Celaya’s free public lecture offers a clarion call for artists and those who take art seriously to recover the artist’s ethical responsibility to the world and art's potential to transform lives.
Martinez Celaya works in painting, sculpture, photography, writing and publishing. His work emerges from a philosophical and literary mindfulness and a commitment to the common origins of art, literature, philosophy and science. He has created projects for art venues such as the Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig and the Miami Art Museum as well as non-art institutions such as the Berliner Philharmonie and St. Mary’s Church in Limerick, Ireland.
