Penn State Laureate Chris Staley: 'The Gift of Listening'

Ceramicist Chris Staley, the 2012-13 Penn State Laureate and distinguished professor of art at the University, discussed topics related to creativity and the intersection between art and life in a series of weekly videos shared during the 2012-13 academic year, aiming to expand people's ideas on art and serve as a catalyst for further conversation. Locations ranged from Staley's studio to horse stables to a football field, and included interviews with Penn State sports coaches and other distinguished members of the University community. The three- to four-minute videos were co-produced by College of Arts and Architecture staff member Cody Goddard. The final video, "The Gift of Listening," is posted at and appears below.
