The live event, broadcast from the UI Museum of Art, will be open to the public free of charge. Audience members should enter the museum through the new, permanent entrance on the building's east side, facing the Iowa River. The new entrance leads directly into the Nancy and Craig Willis Atrium.

The program will begin with a performance by the Maia Quartet (photo left), who will talk about their recent visit to China. On the subject of music and wellbeing, they will be joined by Kate Gfeller and Mary Adamek, UI faculty members in music therapy.

A number of other guests and topics will also be part of the program. Iowa City native Zachary Jack will talk about "Letters to a Young Iowan," which he edited for Ice Cube Press in North Liberty.
