Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

Event Image Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

*WU Campus

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.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

AIA Lecture Series

Michael Chazan
Professor, Department of Anthropology
Director, Archaeology Center
University of Toronto

The town of Kuruman or Ga-Sagonyana is at the edge of the Kalahari in the Northern Cape Province.  The archaeology of this region is an extraordinarily rich record of human presence over a period of two million years.  The lecturer will present the experience of working in this fascinating part of the world and the results of research at the site of Wonderwerk Cave where he co-directs a project that has documented the earliest known evidence of cave occupation by human ancestors.  This talk will give a sense of what it is like to do archaeology in a society experiencing dramatic social change, as South Africa experiences the transformation from apartheid.  At the same time the current state of research—what we have learned and what we are still struggling to understand—will be presented for Wonderwerk and also for the neighboring sites of Kathu Pan and Canteen Kopje.

The Willamette University Departments of Music and Theatre present Hauntcert, a Halloween-themed concert featuring the combined University Chamber Orchestra and Wind Ensemble on Sunday, October 29th in Hudson Hall.

Hector Aguero, conductor of the University Chamber Orchestra and Wind Ensemble, said audiences can expect a family-friendly, spook-tacular event that highlights the fun side of attending musical performances.

Event Image Distilled: Gravitational Waves
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Salem, Oregon

Willamette University’s new Distilled: Pub Talk series will kick off with a presentation from astrophysicist Rachel Dewey Thorsett, who will present “Distilled: Seeing the Dark with Gravitational Waves” at The Half Penny. The talk follows the Oct. 3 announcement of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics, which was awarded to three researchers behind the detection of gravitational waves using LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. “How do you ‘see’ the dark?” asks Dewey-Thorsett. “We’ll talk about how recent Nobel Prize-winning research — based on Einstein’s century-old theory of relativity — opens a new window to the cosmos.” Prior to becoming an affiliated scholar in Willamette’s physics department, Dewey-Thorsett taught physics and astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz for 13 years. She has also worked at Cornell University, Princeton University and Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Lab, with a research focus on radio astronomy and stellar evolution. Dewey-Thorsett earned her bachelor’s degree from Harvard and her doctorate from Princeton. Held on the first Wednesday of the month, Distilled: Pub Talks feature scholars in an informal environment. The free presentations are geared for the public, and no background knowledge is needed. A question and answer session will follow the talk. Just south of Madrona at 3743 Commercial St. S., The Half Penny is open to all ages until 9 p.m. Subscribe to monthly alerts and learn more at willamette.edu/go/distilled.
