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.

All Day

Through Sunday, Jan. 29
Museum — Print Study Center

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.

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!
