‘WorldCanvass’ recording is Friday

January 24th, 2011

This announcement appeared in the Iowa City Press-Citizen.

The public is encouraged to attend the next recording of “WorldCanvass,” when guests will discuss the counterculture of the ’60s and ’70s. This free program will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol Museum.

The program will examine the social history of the U.S. during the ’60s and ’70s, a time when youth culture rejected traditional views on everything from patriotism and government to sexuality and recreational drugs. Guests will discuss the movement’s influence on film, theater, art and pop culture in decades to come.

Guests include UI Museum of Art curator Kathleen Edwards, who will introduce the museum’s upcoming Lil Picard exhibit; UI professors Jon Winet, Art Borreca and Lisa Heineman, all from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; and more. For a complete list of guests and topics, visit

“WorldCanvass” is recorded in front of a live audience for later broadcast on UITV, KRUI-FM and Iowa Public Radio.

“WorldCanvass” is a production of International Programs in partnership with the UI Pentacrest Museums, UITV, KRUI and Information Technology Services. For more information, contact Joan Kjaer at 335-2026 or
