Inaugural Barbara and Lawrence Myers Lecture with Buck Niehoff on the themes of “Breaking Water.”

Buck Niehoff’s passion for rivers led him on a 184-mile journey along the Thames River, which he chronicled in his book Walking the Thames. Join us as he talks about his journey, while also creating personal connections to themes in Breaking Water, such as human/water interconnection and water as a holder of memory.

Niehoff is the former Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman, a retired attorney, philanthropist, and author. His June 23rd talk at the Contemporary Arts Center is the first in the Barbara and Lawrence Myers Lecture Series. The series is funded by Barbara Myers, inspired by her love of life-long learning and by her late husband’s passion for communicating with people of all walks of life.

The Barbara and Lawrence Myers Lecture Series funds quarterly public lectures aligned with themes and issues corresponding to exhibitions or performances at the Contemporary Arts Center. Drawing on speakers from diverse perspectives, professions, and areas of influence, the lectures are meant to bring out aspects of an exhibition or performance of interest to general audiences.
