June 6-9: Food and culture series

The 20th annual June Lecture Series at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UD in Wilmington will be held June 6-9. Titled 'June a la Carte,' this year's program focuses on great political documents, feminism, world politics and a Newark cuisine sampler.

Scheduled at lunchtime, these varied, short and informal talks offer an introduction to each exhibition as well as time for discussion.

The exhibition, on view through Dec. 8, highlights the visual alchemy of artists Maren Hassinger and Sonya Clark, whose creative agencies turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Through their gifts of artistic innovation the artists have transformed Mechanical Hall Gallery into a space for contemplation, consideration and ambulation. 

The exhibition follows short residencies of Hassinger and Clark at the University in the spring. 

The exhibition is curated by Julie L. McGee, curator of African American art with University Museums and associate professor of Black American Studies.
