April 24: Ron Wenger Memorial Lecture

The Lori's Hands registered student organization will host the Ron Wenger Memorial Lecture at 6 p.m., Thursday, April 24, at the Health Sciences Complex on the University of Delaware's STAR Campus.

Hansen is an American artist who developed a physical disability from his craft and recognized this limitation as an opportunity for creative growth. 

As he shared during his talk at the TED2013 Conference in Long Beach, Calif., “‘Embracing the Shake,’ for me, wasn’t just about art and having art skills; it turned out to be about life and having life skills … Learning to be creative, within the confines of our limitations, is the best hope we have to transform ourselves and collectively transform our world.” 

Hansen is renowned for his uncommon methods, which include original portraits and replicas of classic masterpieces created using items such as cardboard coffee cups and fresh produce.

An IFC representative said the organization is confident that Hansen’s message will resonate with individuals from all walks of life and invites all students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to attend.
