The School of Art and Design at West Virginia University welcomes the Geographer-at-Large Eames Demetrios as the Deem Distinguished Lecturer of 2020. On February 20th at 5:00 pm, Demetrios will present on his global art project Kcymaerxthaere, which currently encompasses 142.5 installations in 30 countries.
Funded by Patrick and Alison Deem, the Deem Distinguished lecture began more than 20 years ago. The annual event helps further the WVU education experience by exposing students and faculty to cutting-edge artists and arts supporters.
Over the years, Alison and Patrick Deem have been true leaders in advancing the arts at WVU, and most especially, the education of students. Their Distinguished Visiting Artist Lecture Series has brought internationally recognized artists and their work to the WVU campus, fostering not only student and faculty engagement, but also free public lectures by these artists, providing community access to thought-provoking examples of contemporary art.
