Driven: True Stories of Inspiration
Saturday, August 20, 2011
Audio Slideshow Series

How are creative investigations sparked? What does a state of inspiration feel like? Can it be transmitted from person to person? Join us on Saturday, August 20, for Driven: True Stories of Inspiration, an audio slideshow series that explores the fascinating world of how we work creatively. Driven presents the human stories behind creative accomplishments. Learn what drives people like Gerd Mairandres, head of the Wig and Make-up Department at the San Francisco Opera, or David Wilson, founder of the Los Angeles-based Museum of Jurassic Technology, featuring unique and thought-provoking treasures.
