Makoto Fujimura Lecture 

When: Thu., Oct. 7, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: free
Internationally respected culture commentator, visual artist and worldly renaissance man Makoto Fujimura has lectured at Princeton and Yale universities; he’s seen his works shown in museums in Hong Kong and Tokyo, and he’s served on the National Council of Arts (from 2003-09). Now Nashville and Belmont University can say, “Welcome, Mr. Fujimura.” Respected for influencing both the faith-based and secular media — and a rarity of sorts, as a Christian of Japanese descent — the Boston-born Fujimura is one of the planet’s top advocates for contemporary art. In 1990, he founded the International Arts Movement and has since traveled extensively, advising powerbrokers about governmental policies regarding the arts. Attendees of this free lecture will be in for a treat, as Fujimura is capable of touching on various topics — a quick glance at the curriculum vitae on his website is enough to intimidate even the most self-confident academician on the lecture circuit — with authority and class.
— William Williams
