Dave Gier is an engaging speaker and an excellent ambassador for the School of Music and the University of Iowa! I was inspired by his talk to attend more music events. We’re so lucky to live in this community.
I really enjoyed it. I took away some important lessons about the complexity of life during that time, and the way in which the Invisible Hawkeyes used their experience as tools for personal growth, and to advance social change efforts. I also appreciated learning about the level of personal depth, character, and maturity these individuals possessed, and how they channeled these strengths to not only inform their practice, but towards improving society by creating spaces where they were able to communicate about their culture through art. Nice job Drs. Michael and Lena Hill!
