Dr. Bishop will make a strong case for why all of us need to learn how to effectively navigate a world in which change is coming at us at a faster pace every day, and how we can educate ourselves and our children about making a better world. In addition, this lecture is part of a series in which the museum hopes to address the possibility of reviving traditional crafts and bringing artisans and craftspeople to San Angelo’s Cultural District. Dr. Bishop’s talk will include a description of how our future economy is likely to be driven more and more by the demand for handcrafted goods and also the demand for
experiences, such as taking a short class or participating in a workshop in crafts such as glassblowing, blacksmithing, and beer brewing.
Dr. Bishop’s lecture is hosted by the SAMFA Collector’s Society, a group within the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts’ membership, that each year presents a series of discussions and talks on a broad range of issues. This year’s lecture series is sponsored by a grant from the FMH Foundation in Midland, which has allowed SAMFA to bring a variety of important speakers such as Dr. Bishop to our community. All are encouraged to attend. For more information please call the museum at 653-3333.
