Cultures Found, Cultures Lost: One Teacher's Global Experiences

Levitt Foyer Gallery, Gershman Hall

This exhibit and lecture by Benjamin B. Olshin, associate professor of Philosophy/History of Science at the University of the Arts, is part of "Third Space," the International Student Programs' exhibition, performance and lecture series.

Dr. Olshin began roaming the world when he was just 19, heading off to a month of work and study in Sri Lanka, and he's been on the move pretty much all the time since then, though settled now in Philadelphia to a certain extent. In recent years, he's visited places as far afield as Cairo and Bangkok. This talk is about Olshin’s many years of travel in his 20s, 30s and 40s, teaching art and design overseas, as well as painting, drawing and doing design in Japan, Taiwan and other parts of the world.
