It’s one of Fermilab’s favorite times of year: the announcement of the new season of the Fermilab Arts and Lecture Series.
Each year, the series welcomes speakers, musicians and actors from around the world, at affordable prices. Highlights this season include a lecture on aliens from SETI’s Jill Tarter, bluegrass band Run Boy Run, a performance of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein by Aquila Theatre, and of course Fermilab’s super-popular, annual Physics Slam.
Tickets are on sale now.
For information, call 630-840-ARTS (630-840-2787). Purchase tickets with no additional fees.
