County Museum 2020 Dome Talks Speaker Series
Redlnads, Ca– The San Bernardino County Museum announces the speakers confirmed for the 2020 Dome Talks series. The lineup features provocative, timely, quirky, and science-critical issues relevant to the Inland Empire region. These evening discussions are scheduled monthly from January through July with seven speakers, an increase in dates from the 2019 series. Full Series Passes include a ticket for each evening and are now on sale. Tickets for individual dates go on sale beginning Dec. 11.
“We are delighted with this fourth season lineup for Dome Talks, a series meant to bring notable speakers to the San Bernardino County Museum,” said Museum Director Melissa Russo. “These seven remarkable individuals promise discussions that will be entertaining and deeply thought-provoking.”
Dome Talks commences on the evening of Jan. 16, with Mark Hall Patton, museums administrator for the Clark County Museum system for 23 years, overseeing the Clark County Museum, Howard W. Cannon Aviation Museum, and Searchlight History Museum. Patton is publicly recognized as a regular featured expert on History Channel’s hit series Pawn Stars, contributing his considerable knowledge to this popular show.
All Dome Talks evenings open at 6:30 p.m. for a light reception sponsored by the San Bernardino County Museum Association, Amparo Serrano, and Lorenzi Estate Vineyards and Winery. Presentations start at 7 p.m. and include book sale and signing where applicable. Books are available for sale in the Museum store starting in October.
Full Series Passes are now on sale for $130 ($100 museum members) and include all seven evenings. Tickets for individual evenings will go on sale December 11 for $20 each evening ($16 museum members) and are subject to availability as the Dome Talks theater has limited seating. Tickets can be purchased online at www.sbcounty.gov/museum or may be purchased at the Museum’s Guest Services Desk. Advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged as walkups are not guaranteed. No refunds can be made for ticket purchases, but unused tickets may be donated to the nonprofit San Bernardino County Museum Association in advance of the date.
