Event Image Exhibition | Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection | Nov 5 - Jan 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition features 17 ceramic vessels from the collection of Keith Achepohl and examines how African potters - who are primarily women - have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment.

Event Image Exhibition | Louis Bunce: Works on Paper | Nov 5 - Jan 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Louis Bunce was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and 1950s, and his silkscreen prints from this time helped transform what had been a means for mass production advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by professor emeritus and senior faculty curator Roger Hull, the exhibition will feature a range of prints and works on paper from public and private collections that highlight Bunce's accomplishments as a printmaker and is timed to overlap with a major retrospective of Bunce's work which will open in January.

Event Image The Ghost Light Project
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

On Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 5:30 p.m. in each time zone across the country, members of the theatre community — from Broadway to regional theatres, and high schools, colleges and community theatres — will come together to launch The Ghost Light Project. Gathering outside of theatres on the eve of the Presidential Inauguration, people will join in a collective, simultaneous action, together creating "light" for challenging times ahead. Inspired by the tradition of leaving a "ghost light" on in a darkened theatre, artists and communities will make or renew a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone — regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Join us at the M. Lee Pelton Theatre on the Willamette University campus this Thursday, January 19, beginning at 5:15 p.m. for a community gathering. We invite you to bring family, friends, and a flashlight (or other light-emitting device like a cell phone) to participate in the ghost light ceremony at 5:30 p.m.
