2015 Campbell Lecture Series featuring Michael Petry
Artist and Rice Univeristy alum Michael Petry will deliver a three-night lecture series at the Rice Media Center. The talks will cover different themes and topics related to his 30 years in art production. Petry, director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, London, will also be opening an installation on April 11 at Hiram Butler Gallery.
