Mayan art, culture is focus of today's conversation with artists-in-residence

Submitted by Darchelle Martin

A public conversation with the creators of "Maya Variations for Earth Harp" and Kansas State University faculty will be from 2-4 p.m. today, April 4, in Hale Library's Hemisphere Room.

Mayan language, art and history, and culture will be explored in this discussion of themes suggested by the multimedia work "Maya Variations for Earth Harp," which will be performed on Sunday, April 6, in Hale Library's Great Room. The conversation will include the perspectives of documentary filmmakers, musicians, anthropologists and more. A reception will follow.

These events are a part of Kansas State University's Creativity Illuminated, which runs April 3-6. It is a celebration of cultural awareness with special musical performances, discussions, film screenings and more presented by artists-in-residence. Sponsored by the university's Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, K-State Libraries, McCain Auditorium and the School of Leadership Studies, Creativity Illuminated offers four days of activities designed to foster creativity, promote academic discourse and encourage cultural awareness on campus and in the community by exploring arts, culture, history and more.
