The Cassini spacecraft is slated to end its phenomenally successful 20-year, 4.9 billion-mile mission in spectacular fashion Friday morning, breaking up and burning like a hurtling meteor toward the multi-ringed planet it has orbited for the last 13 years. University of Virginia planetary astronomer Anne Verbiscer, a participating scientist with the mission, is attending this week’s end-of-mission celebration at the California Institute of Technology.
This week Darden celebrated its diverse global community through various events, workshops and discussions, and with lots of free food! Many of Darden’s affinity clubs hosted the events of the week. See below for pictures from the week and a recap of some of the global events of One Darden Week!
In 1921, Sameul Kootz graduated from the University of Virginia with a law degree. He went on to become one of the 20th century's most famous American art dealers. Kootz, who died in 1982, is perhaps most famous for his relationship with Pablo Picasso. He mounted the first post-war exhibition of Picasso’s work in America at The Samuel Kootz Gallery in New York City.
