John Cage, American avant-garde music composer, writer and artist, was born one hundred years ago today, September 5, 1912, in Los Angeles. Celebrations of the centennial of his birth have been occurring throughout the world in 2012. Cage, who died in New York City on August 12, 1992, was at UCI at least once. The photographs below document a performance/lecture in Humanities 100 at UCI, most likely in the 1980s. Although the photographs include no additional information about the dates of the performance, we thought we would share them with you on this important day. Happy 100th birthday, John Cage!
