Friday, Dec. 13, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 14, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

During the 19th century, British art and social critic John Ruskin was revered as one of the worlds great sages; his eloquent writings inspired deep reverence for nature and the arts. In the context of the Industrial Revolution, he advocated the creation of a society where the abilities of all would be respected and used. This conference, held during the bicentenary year of his birth, introduces Ruskin to a modern audience and makes the case for his continuing relevance in our own troubled time. Rothenberg Hall
