NC State University
Frank Harmon will present ‘Cultures of Place’ Lecture Series ‘Drawing as a Way to See’ on Monday Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Tucson Museum of Art.
How does one define place? “Place” may occur in nature, in the city or in our professional lives.

On Monday, Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Tucson Museum of Art, UA College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture and the American Institute of Architects Southern Arizona will host “Cultures of Place” lecture series “Drawing as a Way to See”. Presented by Frank Harmon and sponsored by Studio Rick Joy, this lecture will bring attention on the ways we define “place”.

Harmon has designed sustainable modern buildings across the Southeast for 30 years. His work engages contemporary issues such as sustainability, restoration of cities and nature and "placelessness."
