Now known to fans the world over as Bogdan Wolynetz, the carwash owner in the Emmy Award-winning series, Stan will be giving a talk at Argonne National Laboratory on Thursday, July 17 about the connections he sees between science and art. 

 Stan’s presentation will run from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm and will include a Q&A session. While the event at Argonne has been sold out, it will be broadcast live on Argonne’s live stream channel.
