An Evening with Adam Savage

The Mossman Distinguished Lecture Series presents An Evening with Adam Savage.

An artist and a self-defined skeptic, Savage will celebrate wonder, whimsy, and the maker movement in his lecture. His credits as a special effects designer include blockbuster Hollywood films such asStar Wars: Episode II–Attack of the Clones and The Matrix Reloaded.

His never-ending curiosity led him to co-host the popular TV show MythBusters. A new spin-off of the show, MythBusters Jr., features Savage attempting to answer questions with the help of brilliant children. The show is scheduled to air this fall on the Science Channel.

Savage’s accolades include a 2009 Emmy Award nomination and the 2010 Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the Harvard Secular Society.

Free parking will be available until 9 p.m. in the G10 Garage, adjacent to Neyland Stadium.
