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.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to present a major retrospective exhibition for Louis Bunce (1907-1983), a legendary Portland painter, printmaker, and teacher who taught at the Museum Art School from 1946 to 1972 and who influenced several generations of Oregon artists.

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.

"Agents of Change" Documentary Film and Discussion
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

From the well-publicized events at San Francisco State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April, 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education, including demands for black and ethnic studies programs, became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960's. Through the stories of these young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests. The film’s characters were caught at the crossroads of the civil rights, black power, and anti-Vietnam war movements at a pivotal time in America’s history. Today, over 45 years later, many of the same demands are surfacing in campus protests across the country, revealing how much work remains to be done. Join Directors Directors Frank Dawson and Abby Ginzberg for a screening and discussion.
