The Wexner Center's DeeDee and Herb Glimcher Lecture series, funded through the generosity of the Glimcher family, features distinguished guest speakers discussing issues in contemporary art, architecture and design. For years, this annual lecture has been held as a free Central Ohio event on the OSU campus. This year, when the Wexner Center wanted to broaden its reach and webcast the lecture to a national – and global – audience, it turned to Mills James’ streaming services.
On November 1, viewers from around the world tuned in to the “Robert A. M. Stern in Conversation with Paul Goldberger” lecture, streamed live from the Wexner Center’s Mershon Auditorium. Renowned architect, writer, and historian Robert A. M. Stern, founder and senior partner of the New York-based Robert A. M. Stern Architects and former dean of the Yale School of Architecture was interviewed by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger, former architecture critic for the New Yorker and the New York Times, now a contributing editor at Vanity Fair.
Mills James televised the conversation between Stern and Goldberger and transmitted the webcast via Livestream, a video streaming platform that broadcasts live video through the internet. The telecast was picked up by viewers across the U.S. and Canada and global locations including Jamaica, Moroleon and San Juan del Rio, Mexico; and Janub as Surrah and Al Fahahil, Kuwait.
The Wexner Center for the Arts is The Ohio State University's multidisciplinary, international laboratory for the exploration and advancement of contemporary art. Through exhibitions, screenings, performances and educational programs, the Wexner Center acts as a forum where diverse audiences can participate in cultural experiences that enhance understanding of the art of our time.
