Dana Carlisle Kletchka, SoVA professor, alum, and curator of education for the Palmer Museum of Art is among the list of notable speakers for the 2016 TEDxPSU conference. The conference will be held in the Schwab Auditorium on February 28 at 10:00 a.m. Kletchka's talk is entitled, “A Reconsideration of Art Museums in the 21st Century.”

TEDxPSU was brought to the Penn State community in 2010. The mission of the event is to bring together innovative and thought-provoking individuals from the Penn State community and the world to share ideas worth spreading. Using a blend of live talks and pre-recorded videos, TEDxPSU unites the University community and kicks off a dialogue about the challenges and opportunities facing our society.

TED started in 1984 as a small nonprofit conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader to include science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our world.
