Toronto-born Leonard Warren will deliver the second lecture in The Art of Science exhibition series, focusing on the life and work of William Maclure. Maclure financially supported the scientific endeavors of the extraordinary artist Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and disciplined scientist Thomas Say, who made the community of New Harmony their working laboratory in 1826.
"In these pages, Maclure comes alive in all his energy, genius, generosity, and glaring idiosyncrasies.... The merits of Warren's work promise to make [this book] the standard biography." Donald Pitzer, author of America's Communal Utopias.
