Event Image Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Over the centuries, African potters 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. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition will feature 17 ceramic vessels from the Keith Achepohl collection of Eugene, Oregon.

Event Image Louis Bunce: Works on Paper (Multi-Day Event)

Louis Bunce (1907-1983) was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and ‘50s, and his silkscreen prints helped transform what had been a means to produce advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by Roger Hull, professor emeritus and senior faculty curator, the exhibition features a range of prints and works on paper. Hull presents a gallery talk Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m.

"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.

DC Culture Night: CHARM by Phillip Dawkins
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Off Campus

Join fellow Willamette alumni for an evening of culture on H Street at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. CHARM, a play by Phillip Dawkins, presents the colorful inner workings of a youth etiquette class taught by Mama Darleena Andrews, an African-American transgender woman, in an LGBTQ organization called the Center. Though her students initially struggle to see how etiquette relates to their daily battles with identity, poverty and prejudice, Mama’s powerful love and unapologetic attitude eventually win them over. Read the full play summary.

The play is inspired by the true story and work of Miss Gloria Allen at the Center on Halsted in Chicago, Illinois. The Tribune printed a story about her work in 2012.

If you will be joining, please purchase a ticket for the 8 p.m. performance on Thursday, Jan. 26. Tickets can be purchased for $20 or $40 depending on seating choice. Tickets can be purchased here.

Our alumni group will also be meeting for pre-theater drink and food at the nearby Smith Commons (1245 H St, NE) from 6-7:30 p.m.

 We hope you can join us for the "inaugural" WU DC Culture Night!

Event Image Emmett’s Life Matters: Enthymeme, Presence, and Magnitude in Black Lives Matter Discourse
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Maegan Parker Brooks, Assistant Professor, Civic Communications and Media, will speak about her recent research. The name, the face, and the story of Emmett Till, the black teenager who was lynched in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman, are reemerging in America’s collective consciousness. This presentation will consider how the figure of Till figures within contemporary verbal and visual media. I will examine popular newspaper and magazine articles, as well as widely-circulated memes, explicating their implicit social knowledge premises in relation to three audience groups. For contemporary activists, establishing connections between Till, the mid-twentieth century Black Freedom Movement, and America’s current racial climate offers direction to a nascent movement. For experientially external yet sympathetic audiences, evoking the Till tragedy provides form and substance to the abstract condition of mourning endured by blacks in America. For those external and previously disinterested audiences, memes visually linking Till to the contemporary deaths of unarmed black youth create dialectical tensions which hold the affective capacity to stimulate an acknowledgment of how post-racial inaction perpetuates entrenched patterns of injustice.

Salem Concert Band: Fellini at the Circus
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus
*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Have you ever wanted to run away to the circus? This is your chance!

The Salem Concert Band, under the baton of conductor John Skelton, takes you along with “Fellini at the Circus,” performed at Willamette University’s Hudson Concert Hall in the Mary Stuart Rogers Music Center at 3 PM on January 29. Hold onto your seat for a fun afternoon of death defying music.

Step right up as the band performs the North American premiere of Fellini by Johan de Meij. The music captures the spirit of Italian film director Federico Fellini in the setting of a circus. The composer describes this as a piece “for alto saxophone, circus band and wind orchestra.” Let local saxophonist Randy Kem amaze you with his virtuosity, even though it appears that he’s simply clowning around. (Have you ever seen a saxophonist perform while riding a clowncycle? Something truly spectacular to see and hear!) The band will also engage the spirit of Fellini by performing the Symphonic Suite from “La Strada” (The Road) by Nino Rota. This music from Fellini’s 1954 Academy Award winning film captures an excursion by street entertainers (street circus) through the Italian countryside filled with joy and sorrow.

But wait — there’s more! Circus Ring by Paul Hart and The Ringmaster’s March by John Mackey invoke all the pageantry, humor, and animal acts of the circus, with a bit of a twist.

And if you act now, you can also hear not one, but two classic circus marches — The Circus Bee by Henry Fillmore and Barnum and Bailey’s Favorite by Karl King. They alone are worth the price of admission!

Don’t try to sneak under the tent — buy your tickets today! Tickets are $20 reserved seating, $15 general admission, and $5 student general admission. Tickets are available here, by calling 503-362-0485, and at the door.

Event Image Imagining the Atacama Desert
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Richard V. Francaviglia, Professor Emeritus, will speak about his recent research. Through the analysis of maps and written narratives he will demonstrate how the Atacama Desert of South America was discovered, and then re-discovered, over nearly five centuries in a series of sequential phases. From about 1530 to 1700, “Atacama” designated a remote but strategic political province whose lack of population rather than desert climate was emphasized. After about 1700, however, the Atacama began to be identified as an arid region as a result of increasingly scientific mapping and exploration. In this transitional phase, the Atacama was part of a broader pattern in which the political mapping of empires was gradually supplemented by thematic physical or scientific mapmaking. In the third stage, which began in the mid-1830s, the Atacama Desert became linked to increasingly strong nationalist impulses and the rapidly growing power of international corporate developments in transportation and mineral extraction. In the fourth and current stage, which began about 1945, the Atacama began to be promoted and marketed as the quintessential desert worth experiencing for its uniqueness — something early explorers would have found incomprehensible. Past, present, and future, the Atacama reveals much about how places are discovered, and then re-discovered, through time.

Event Image How to Best Your Rivals: Origins, Cult, and the Monuments of Roman Perge
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 7:30 p.m.
Hallie Ford Museum of Art — Room 215


DR. DIANA NG, ASSOC. PROFESSOR OF ART HISTORY, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN-DEARBORN The city of Perge in the Roman Pamphylia (modern Turkey) boasted a number of highly decorated urban amenities—like city gates and fountains—that were typical in the Roman Empire. This talk will examine these buildings and their sculptural decoration in the context of the heated intercity rivalries of the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE. Private patrons and public priorities merged together to make a case for Perge’s primacy among its regional rivals, relying on the illustrious legendary beginnings of the city and its widely known cult of Artemis. Diana Y. Ng is an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, specializing in Roman art and archaeology. Her interests are centered on questions of civic and elite identities, benefaction, and memory. This year, she is an Associated Scholar with the Department of Art History at Willamette University (Salem, Oregon).
