Picture of Mossman Lecture Series with Adam SavageThe Mossman Distinguished Lecture Series presents An Evening with Adam Savage.

An artist and a self-defined skeptic, Savage will celebrate wonder, whimsy, and the maker movement in his lecture. His credits as a special effects designer include blockbuster Hollywood films such as Star Wars: Episode II–Attack of the Clones and The Matrix Reloaded.

His never-ending curiosity also led him to co-host the popular TV show MythBusters. A new spin-off of the show, MythBusters Jr., features Savage attempting to answer questions with the help of brilliant children. The show is scheduled to air this fall on the Science Channel.

Throughout his career Savage has received several accolades, including a 2009 Emmy Award nomination and the 2010 Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the Harvard Secular Society.
