In just a few days, New York contemporary artist, Tom Sachs, will be gracing the podium at San Diego State University’s Hepner Hall. Sachs, who’s work often takes a nod at consumer iconography, will be speaking on his career as an artist. Open to the public, the lecture will be held on Thursday, February 7th at 7:00pm.

Best wishes to you all in the new year.
