The Velaslavasay Panorama presents a heady, illustrated lecture on color vocabulary by Dr. Zed Adams of the New School for Social Research in New York. His lecture—What if Esquimaux had No Words for Blue? The History & Philosophical Significance of 19th Century Color Vocabulary Studies— uses as a starting point William Gladstone’s claim that Homer's color vocabulary in the Iliad revealed that the ancient Greeks were color-blind. There will also be a color-themed reception held afterward in the garden area of the theater. 8 pm. Tickets: $10.
