A recognized professor in philosophy from the University of Oklahoma will speak at Texas Tech Thursday.

Sherri Irvin, associate professor of philosophy will speak at the Tech School of Art tonight at 7:30. Her lecture, “Making Contemporary Art: Fabrication and Negotiation” argues that making contemporary art is not simply the creation of the artwork, but the relationship with curators and conservators.

Irvin has lectured at multiple museums and universities, and gave the Seventh Annual Parodi Lecture in Philosophy of Art at the Miami Art Museum in 2010. Her lecture will be in room 169 of the Human Sciences Building.
