Art Alliance is a volunteer organization whose members plan, support and participate in activities that benefit the Riverside Art Museum and contribute to its operating budget.
On Monday, September 22, we kicked off our 2014 Art Alliance fundraising Speaker Series, "Look Who's Talking Too."
Our first guest, Reza Aslan, spoke to a sold out crowd. Dr Aslan is an internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of religions and the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, and No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam. Dr Aslan has been a frequent guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report. He spoke on "The Jesus of History & the Christ of Faith," sparking a lively discussion afterwards. Dr. Aslan signed books for those in attendance. A few books may still be available at Cellar Door Bookstore in the Canyon Crest Shopping Center.
FUTURE SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
Monday, October 6 Shannon Murphy, Art Director
"Art & Creativity: Alive in Palestine"
Monday, October 13 Marla Cohen, Chef
"From the Bowels of the Basement to Rubbing
Shoulders With Hollywood"
Lauren Potter, actress from the hit series "Glee," has been postponed from her original September 29th date due to a filming conflict. Please check back for the rescheduled date.
