Paul Speer will take his audience on a musical and visual journey through Italy beginning at noon on Wednesday, June 11, at the University of Memphis. “Oculus: Impressions of Italy” will be presented in the Ned R. McWherter Library, Room 226. The event is free and open to the public.

Speer is a Grammy-nominated musician and video artist. He will screen several pieces from his most recent CD/DVD, Oculus, and discuss its creation. Oculus was inspired by Speer’s travels in Italy.
