World of ideals

What's your vision for an ideal world? From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Spencer Museum of Art, 1301 Mississippi St., dial it back to a more ideal time with the free lecture "Envisioning an Ideal World: The City of Great Peace & Visual Politics in Early 19th C. Korea." Dr. Chin-Sung Chang will discuss how Korean images worked within the larger context of East Asian painting, highlighting the relationship between crisis and visual politics.
