Leonard Nimoy, iconically known as “Spock” from Star Trek, and his wife, Susan Nimoy, have been longtime supporters of the performing arts at UCLA, supporting diverse organizations such as the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, the Hammer Museum, and UCLA’s Artist Fellow Programs. Nimoy was set to attend an artist talk with the executive direct of the Center for the Art of Performance, Kristy Edmunds, on April 10th.
