A Lecture by John Zarobell
Wednesday, September 19, 5 pm

University of San Francisco Assistant Professor of International Studies and Program Chair of European Studies John Zarobell will discuss International Orange, a public exhibition that employs contemporary art to interrogate and reflect upon our relationship to the history of Fort Point in the Presidio. Time is the method used by many of these contemporary artists to draw out the complexities involved in looking backwards and determining what this past might mean to us.

International Orange will be open from 10 am to 5 pm through September 30, 2012.
