"Meaning in Sacred Architecture" subject of BYU lecture Sept. 23

“Finding Meaning in Sacred Architecture” will be the topic of an address presented by Val W. Brinkerhoff, associate professor of photography at Brigham Young University, Wednesday, Sept. 23, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building. The lecture is free, and the public is welcome.

Brinkerhoff has authored or co-authored seven books. Three of the most recent centered on unlocking the visual symbolism of sacred architecture, ancient and modern, including that of the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This research has taken him to 40 countries in the last six years, often with students as part of the “Sacred Places” project.

His fine art print work has been exhibited widely, and his photography and writing have been featured in periodicals including Photo Life, Photo Electronic Imaging, Photo Techniques, Darkroom Photography, PhotoGraphic, Modern Photography, BYU Studies and others. He received a degree in art and design from BYU.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
