Art/Act: Brian Skerry-Sharks September 21, 2018 - February 14, 2019 David Brower Center National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry‘s first encounter with a female blue shark off the coast of Rhode Island over 30 years ago was a galvanizing moment. “I was entranced by her rich, indigo skin, while every sense in my body was on high alert, my heart racing as I moved closer,” he says. “Drawing to within a couple of feet of each other, she barely acknowledged my presence and then vanished into the haze.” This fall, the Brower Center honors Skerry with our annual Art/Act award and exhibition. Art/Act: Brian Skerry – SHARKS presents his comprehensive body of photographic work in an immersive exhibition that highlights Skerry’s unique combination of passion, skill, and technique, and explores what it takes to make these powerful images.

Everything Is Illuminated November 9th 8-10 pm  Based on the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, this stunning stage adaptation tells the story of a young Jewish-American writer (also named Jonathan Safran Foer) who sets out for Ukraine to find the woman who he believes saved his grandfather from the Nazis, and the town they wiped off the map. Jonathan’s tour guides are a pair of flamboyant Ukrainians, a grandfather and grandson with limited English skills and secrets of their own.

A Conversation with David Presti December 3rd, 7-8:30 PM Mangalam Center  Join Mangalam Research Center in celebrating the release of "Mind Beyond Brain: Buddhism, Science, and the Paranormal"  a new book by neurocientist David Presti, a distinguished faculty member at UC Berkeley. "Mind Beyond Brain" explores how evidence for anomalous phenomena—such as near-death experiences and apparent memories of past lives—can influence the Buddhism-science dialogue. Contributors describe the history and current state of scientific investigation into these phenomena. In his own essays, Presti situates the debate that circles around the paranormal and reflects on how greater appreciation for the anomalous could transform the way scientific study of the mind and brain is done. The event begins with a short talk by Presti, followed by a conversation with Jack Petranker, Director of Mangalam Research Center, and Q&A from the audience. Join us afterwards for continued conversation and light refreshments. More Info:
