Event Details


The 2016 Edelman Lecture features reporter/news director at KINK radio, mental health advocate, and author Sheila Hamilton who will deliver a talk on a Holistic Approach to Mental Health and read from her book All the Things We Never Knew about being blindsided by her husband’s bipolar disorder and suicide.

Following the lecture, Hamilton will be joined in conversation by musician and mental health activist Logan Lynn and Jennifer Pepin, whose J. Pepin Art Gallery works to reframe the perception of mental illness. Benedict Carey, Science Reporter for The New York Times, will moderate the discussion.

About the Edelman Lecture:
When the late Portland architect and photographer, Alfred Edelman, taught three-dimensional design at PNCA, he challenged his students to consider the principles of engineering, kinetics, physics and other subjects seemingly dissimilar to art. In doing so he brought the outside world into his classroom. Founded by Carol Edelman, the Alfred Edelman Lecture was created to enhance the student’s understanding of the visual world by presenting timeless and/or unique ways to examine and manipulate three-dimensional space and to be a catalyst for lively discussions in the classroom at PNCA.
