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.

Event Image Medically male! The long history of menopuase, gender and pharmaceutical drug trials
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Professor Lynn Botelho (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) explores the vexed and contradictory history of the gendered construction of the female body, from Aristotle to modern medical drug trials, that results in an old woman that is medically male. She focuses on Shakespeare’s England and why menopause is all but missing from everything from medical treatises to personal letters and diaries. Everyone knew that menopause existed, yet no one, not even the women themselves, discussed it. After searching for menopause for 30 years, Botelho hones in on how gender expectations can cross the line into biological and medical ‘realities’.
Distilled Pub Talks: What Remains of the Bolshevik Revolution?
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Off Campus

Willamette's second event in its Distilled: Pub Talks speaker series will feature historian Bill Smaldone, who will present "What Remains of the Bolshevik Revolution?"

A century ago, the Bolshevik Revolution overthrew capitalism in Russia and established a new communist society, the Soviet Union. “By challenging the established world order, the Bolshevik Revolution inspired millions of people around the world to fight for radical change,” says Smaldone. “At the same time it mobilized millions who feared it and aimed to destroy it.  Now — one hundred years after the revolution came to power and a quarter century after the Soviet Union’s demise — it’s worth taking stock of the revolution’s legacy in America and the world.”

Smaldone’s research focuses on 20th century German and European labor. In addition to a textbook on the history of socialism, he’s written two books involving German Social Democrats before and during the rise of Adolph Hitler. Most recently, Smaldone translated and edited two volumes of documents about European socialist thought during the first half of the 20th century.
