On Feb. 14, Columbia Daily Tribune readers will receive a work of art with their Sunday paper. Wrapped around the Perspectives section, this Valentine is a gift designed to make you think. Art, like the news, can inspire deep emotion. What makes you passionate?

Bring your thoughts to a public conversation with artist Jeff Gibson, curator Anne Thompson and Tribune publisher Vicki Russell, moderated by poet and University of Missouri English professor Gabriel Fried on Tuesday, Feb. 16 in the Palmer Room at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute. Bring your poster: Gibson, an Australian native and New York resident whose work was featured in the 2014 Whitney Museum Biennial, will add his signature.

Reception in the lobby starts at 5 p.m. Discussion is 5:30-6:30 p.m.

This event is sponsored by RJI and the I-70 Sign Show public art and events project in collaboration with the Columbia Daily Tribune.
