The Purdue College of Liberal Arts has scheduled a series of events from Monday to Friday (Aug. 19-23) to celebrate Purdue’s sesquicentennial, “150 Years of Giant Leaps.”
Farmers have spent much of 2019 dealing with the challenges that come with an unprecedented wet spring, navigating fluctuating markets, learning about new production alternatives, and adapting to new technologies. These and other issues will be addressed on Sept. 5 at Purdue Extension's annual Crops Field Day. This field day will also serve as a celebration, honoring Purdue University’s “150 Years of Giant Leaps” along with “70 Years of Agronomic Progress at the Agronomy Farm.”
Author, historian and former news executive Walter Isaacson will share his insights on technological innovation in a presentation Sept. 4 at Purdue University.
Former 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander will headline the 19th annual Krannert Leadership Speakers Series event, which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.
Purdue University Galleries will be exhibiting work by artist Anna Ridler in the Robert L. Ringel Gallery in Stewart Center. This exhibition, titled “Dreaming, Automated: Deep Learning, Data Sets, and Decay,” will open Aug. 19 and will run through Sept. 27, with a reception and comments by the artist in the gallery at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 26.
