If for some reason you’re a Halloween holdout — waiting until the weekend to get your fix of spooky events — there’s still plenty going on in the Bay Area to keep you busy. On top of regular music and film events, there are also exciting happenings in fashion — and even science.
Tuesday, Oct. 24 | Red Vic Lectures: Art & Biology
The intersection of art and science may not always appear to be immediately clear for the average consumer of either, but Dan Friedman aims to counteract this common misconception in his talk at the Red Victorian in San Francisco. Friedman promises to discuss the relationship between art and biology from numerous perspectives and within multiple contexts, bringing in cases relating to the visual representation of scientific information as well as topics of sustainability and bioethics. Doors will open at 8 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 26 | Fashion Blogger Q&A with Fashion & Student Trends
Fashion & Student Trends is UC Berkeley’s premier authority on all things fashion, and Thursday from 7-8 p.m., it will be bringing in two fashion bloggers, Christina Davis and Rolanda Evelyn, to speak to those within the club community and outside it on upcoming fall trends that fashionistas can’t stop talking about. The bloggers will also be offering tips and advice for starting and maintaining online blogs, as well as opening a discussion on the current lack of diversity and representation in the fashion industry. The event will take place in 223 Dwinelle Hall.
Thursday, Oct. 26 | ASUC SUPERB Presents: “The Shining”
Once you’ve finished up at the FAST Q&A, you can make your way down to the Hearst Field Annex to catch a screening of “The Shining,” sponsored by ASUC SUPERB.
