TAM Docents: Artist lecture: John Grade, Wed. Sep. 29, 11:30am-1pm,in lecture hall 1

Hello Docents-

I wanted to let you know about an artist lecture occurring next week. I was blown away by John Grade in an exhibition of his work I saw at Boise Art Museum a few years ago. It looks like he will be talking at Evergreen next week while I am giving a volunteer orientation. If you can go, I would recommend it.
