The ceremony, presented by the Office for the Arts at Harvard and the Board of Overseers of Harvard College, will include a discussion with Gehry moderated by actor John Lithgow ’67 ArD ‘05, Master of the Arts at Harvard and host of the event. This is the official opening event for ARTS FIRST, Harvard University’s annual festival showcasing student creativity in the arts, April 28-May 1.
