Communication Professor Fred Turner has been studying the role of art and countercultural movements – including the communal, participatory lifestyle celebrated at the annual Burning Man festival – that have had far-reaching influence in the workplace of tech firms. This February, he will present his scholarship for the Center’s ArtsWest Initiative.
A collaboration between Stanford’s Bill Lane Center for the American West and the Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco, the ArtsWest public symposium in February celebrated the rise of women artists and art scholars in the West during the 20th century.
