Join us in person on Thursday, February 24, at 6 pm, for a Dunkerley Dialogue with artist Ruby Sky Stiler, whose work is on view in Opener 34: Ruby Sky Stiler—New Patterns and Skidmore Associate Professor of Psychology Casey Schofield.

Dunkerley Dialogues pair Skidmore professors with artists in a conversation format, which is often a catalyst for new connections and understandings across disciplines, and can spark new ideas for all participants. Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ’80.

This event is free and open to the public.
