8:00 AM to 12:00 AM - Morris Library First Floor Rotunda Exhibit Space A Saturn return is a terrifying and pivotal time in a person’s life, one of self-discovery and coming of age. The planet Saturn, taking 29.5 years to return to the place in the sky where it was at the time of your birth, creates an impact personally and spiritually. It is this time that local artist and SIU student Whitney Beaver expresses in her new collection of paintings, Surviving Saturn. Join us 9/24/15 at noon in the First Floor Rotunda of Morris Library for a lecture from the artist on the influence of art history on creativity.
