Event Image Exhibition | Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts at 25 | Sept. 16 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in partnership with the Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), the exhibition chronicles the history of Crow’s Shadow over the past 25 years as it has emerged as an important printmaking studio located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

Cozies for a Cause

Various knit and crocheted items will be sold at a pop-up stand in Goudy.

We are also looking for donations of items to be sold at this stand. Attached are two knit patterns for Cozies for a Cause: one for a headband and one for a coffee cozy. Crafts can be dropped off at Professor David Altman's office (Collins 313) on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 11-12.

Distilled Pub Talks: Seeing the Dark with Gravitational Waves
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Off Campus

Willamette University’s new Distilled: Pub Talk series will kick off with a presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from astrophysicist Rachel Dewey Thorsett, who will present “Distilled: Seeing the Dark with Gravitational Waves” at The Half Penny.

The talk follows the recent 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.”

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.
