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.

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!
