The UTA event will be in room 148 in the Fine Arts Building on campus, 502 S. Cooper St. in Arlington and the Collin event will be in the Spring Creek Campus Conference Center, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano.

All events are free and open to the public.

Levinthal's photography has been exhibited in galleries and at shows around the world, in addition he has published several books.
