PAUL SMITH'S COLLEGE VIC • FREE ADMISSION

We are not officially linked to the TED organization, but we like their style. Unofficial versions of short, high-impact TED-talks are supposed to use the label “TED-x”, but as Adirondackers we figure “TED-axe” works even better. So here is a tentative outline of what will happen in the VIC auditorium, our current series of “TED-axe talks & Tunes” that focus on “The Art & Science of Connections.”

"TED-AXE" TALKS

Short TED-style presentations by students, researchers, and educators on topics related to the art and science of connections, including connecting children to the natural world, the music of lightning, and the effects of artificial borders on landscapes. Beginning with a March for Science at 10 AM, from the PSC campus entrance to the VIC.

VISUAL ARTS

A wide range of displays and activities by painters, film makers, and other visual artists from the North Country, focusing on the theme of “Connections.” Organized by Paul Smith’s College and Saranac Lake artists.

LUNCH HOUR DEMONSTRATIONS

Paul Smith’s College faculty, students, and guests will offer live music and science-art activities, including glasses that help you to experience various visual impairments that are experienced by visually impaired artists whose work will also be displayed.

MUSICAL PERFORMANCES

North Country musicians Dan Berggren, Peggy Lynn, Glenn McClure, Jamie Savage, Jason Davis, and others perform between TED-axe talks, focusing on the art and science of time.

REFRESHMENTS

Paul Smith’s College chefs and students will provide tasty and sustainable lunch-sustenance for sale!

HIDDEN HERITAGE

World premier of “Hidden Heritage,” a documentary by Ed Kanze and Josh Clement on new investigations into the long history of connections between indigenous peoples and the Adirondacks.
