Tancer Distinguished Speaker Series
Featuring: Frank Wilczek
Nobel laureate, physicist and author of “A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature’s Deep Design,” Frank Wilczek comes to the Garden, bringing countless inspiring insights about the natural world. Take a small step into humankind’s deepest quests for empirical truths as Wilczek’s warm, poetic lecture ranges from the boundless depths of celestial space to the infinitesimal particles that make up the plants, animals, people and places in nature that we interact with every day.
The Garden is grateful to Shoshana and Robert Tancer for making this series possible.
