Haddin Forum Lecture: Cliff Simon, "Painting Cakes: Paths to Creativity Through Experiential Learning."

Cliff Simon has been teaching theatrical scenic design at UAB since 2002. Previously, he designed painted cakes in New York and Santa Fe, N.M., and once for Diana Ross in Switzerland. That career was a life-changing learning experience about cakes and painting. More importantly, Simon says that career taught him about the correlations between creativity and fear, traumatic experience and comedy, drama and Zen. At this Haddin forum, Simon will discuss his pastime and may give a cake-painting demonstration.

Lunch provided.
