OSU's Department of History of Art Hosts 3rd Annual Patrons' Circle Lecture with Carolyn Dean Today

November 7
12:30 AM 2013

The Department of History of Art will host its 3rd Annual Patrons' Circle Lecture tonight, November 7, at 5:30 pm in 155 Jennings Hall, 1735 Neil Ave. Carolyn Dean, professor, History of Art and Visual Culture, University of California, Santa Cruz, will discuss "Sentient Stones: Meaning in Inka Masonry." A reception will follow in 214 Pomerene Hall, 1760 Neil Ave. Free and open to all.

In the 15th and early 16th centuries the Inka of western South America built magnificent structures of rock; they also ate and drank with, and talked to rocks. This lecture will explore the ways the Inka manipulated rock as a medium. Dean's lecture will address two central questions: what did it mean to the Inka to construct using a sentient medium, and what significance was conveyed by an Inka masonry wall?

The Patrons' Circle was established in 2011 as a means of fostering collaboration and exchange between the students and faculty of the Department of History of Art and cultural and philanthropic leaders throughout the community. The annual contributions of members help fund the annual Patrons' Circle Lecture, which brings prominent art historians to Ohio State each autumn, as well as other departmental initiatives, most notably graduate student travel and research.
