Dan Boyd (UCCS Senior VAPA major) & Kristin Heggem (Landscape Architect)

Dan Boyd will talk about a controversial art exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, and Kristin Heggem will chat all about bees. Sure to be a sweet and salty mashup!

ChitChat is a series of mash-up talks on contemporary culture and DIY topics. Each program features two speakers, hands-on and participatory learning, and a whole lot of lively conversation. This program sparks diverse discussions on contemporary life-specifically in the Pikes Peak Region-and features some of the most interesting minds in Colorado Springs. We are in our 5th season of this popular series; join us and reserve your seat today!

ChitChat tickets include snacks + beverages, two speakers, lively conversation, and more fun than you can shake a stick at.
