Artist Joel Whitaker, professor in the department of visual arts at the University of Dayton, will discuss his current exhibition Cities at the Weston Art Gallery Saturday. 


In his series of digital photographs, Whitaker investigates the ebb and flow of the urban environment and the idea of the city as a living organism, utilizing two different modes of creation: works created from either scans of discarded historical glass plate negatives or satellite images of cities captured from downloads of Google Earth. Whitaker considers both the city and the photographic medium to be transitional — organisms that are in constant flux. 

2 p.m. Free. Weston Art Gallery, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-977-4165, cincinnatiarts.org/weston-art-gallery.
