Dick Button on "The Eye of the Beholder"
May 13 at 2:00 p.m.

Dick Button offers a fascinating lecture on gardening, figure skating, and why we do what we do.  Button is, of course, an Olympic figure skating champion, but he is also an avid gardener. Here he considers the two art forms, exploring questions about the things we do, how we do them, and ways we invite others to view and participate.  A wonderful event to attend with your mother or loved one to celebrate Mother's Day weekend!

Dick Button

Dick Button is widely considered one of the premier male figure skaters. He dominated the world of figure skating for a seven-year period, winning two Olympic gold medals (1948 and 1952), five consecutive World Championships, seven U.S. National titles and North American and European Championships. Button has since had a long and illustrious broadcasting career from 1960-2010, becoming the first winner of an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Sports Personality – Analyst” and too many Halls of Fame to count.
