Countdown to Linda: TODAY, updated!

UPDATE! following event

See above for footage of 2 seconds of fame. Boris and I waiting for the rest of our troops to depart from the Speed and head over to the reception following the lecture last evening. Who's in the background? None, other than Dr. Nochlin and Dr. Jongwoo Jeremy Kim, faculty at the U of L who studied under Dr. Nochlin and introduced Linda last evening. The evening also included visits to the Speed galleries and the work of Tom Huck in the Hite Galleries at the U of L.
