SPECIAL LECTURES AND SYMPOSIA
The Zeitlin Lectures were inaugurated in 1979 to honor Jacob Zeitlin (1902-1987), the legendary Los Angles bookseller, poet, and pioneer patron of the arts. In 1985, through his generosity, an endowment fund to assure the future of the lectures was established. Mr. Zeitlin gave the first lecture, which coincided with the presentation of Käthe Kollwitz: The Jake Zeitlin Bookshop and Gallery—1937, a UAM exhibition which recreated Mr. Zeitlin's presentation of work by the noted German Expressionist artist. Subsequent lectures have been given by artists David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, the late George Segal, Robert Irwin, Wayne Thiebaud, the late Beatrice Wood, Jonathan Borofsky, Bill Viola, Sally Gall, James Rosenquist, Sidney B. Felsen, Eric Fischl, Jim Dine, Jorge Pardo, Alex Melamid, and Tina Barney.
