What does Brazilian dance have in common with motorcycle culture? Crêpes and the physics of color? How about the Salem witch trials and bicycles?
Well, probably not much, but you'll never find out unless you drop into one of the next ChitChat sessions from the Galleries of Contemporary Art. It's now in its
third second season, but for you newbies out there, it's a series of paired lectures from experts in disparate fields. So, for the crêpe/color night, you'll hear about physics from Dr. Tom Christensen from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and food from Turu Marx Eurich of Coquette's Bistro & Bakery.
Better, ChitChats are all hands-on, "often edible learning!" says the website, so be prepared to eat a little, practice magic tricks or, perhaps, samba. It's a pretty good deal, considering it's free to UCCS students, and asks for a donation of $5 from GOCA members and $10 from the general public.
ChitChat begins Feb. 20, with each session starting at 6:30 p.m. with wine, beer and snacks followed by the program. They all take place downtown at GOCA 121.
