Lecture: Carol Becker Lecture

As part of the fall Art in the First Person series, Carol Becker gave a talk in the SVA amphitheater on November 13th on “the particular values that are mostly implicit in schools of art and design—the emphasis on process, the belief in failure, the concepts of sustainability, and the commitment to global thinking.”
