Princeton University will kick off its “Atelier@Large: Conversations on Art-making in a Vexed Era” series with an open-to-the-public discussion, Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at its Richardson Auditorium, featuring novelist Jennifer Egan and tap dance artist Michael J. Love. Poet and Princeton professor Paul Muldoon will serve as the moderator.
According to the university’s website, the series “brings guest artists to campus to discuss the challenges they face in making art in the modern world.”
The talk is free though advance tickets are required. Visit arts.princeton.edu.
