From February 15- March 15 the Sustainability Institute along with Housing will be putting on an energy competition between residence halls across campus. Each building's energy usage will be measured throughout the month to determine which hall reduced their electricity use the most. Unplug your appliances, turn off your lights, and spend time in common areas (to use the same light source thus reducing your collective usage) to help your building win! Follow our event on Facebook (Willamette Unplugged: Energy Compeition) to sign our pledge and be entered into a weekly raffle to win sustainable prizes, receive updates on your building's status in the competition, and get tips on how to live a more sustainable life. Join in the first ever energy competition on campus and help make the Willamette campus a more sustainable place to live!
Event Image Exhibition | Holy Beauty | Feb. 10 - April 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible

Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Event Image Surrealism and the American West: André Breton's "Hopi Notebook"
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Katharine Conley considers the founder of the surrealist movement’s practice of collecting in light of the notebook he kept on his trip to visit the Hopi reservation in August 1945, the month the United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Breton’s theories of the object anticipate current debates about the animacy of things by such contemporary theorists as Jane Bennett and Mel Chen by about 50 years. His belief in the liveliness of repurposed things, haunted by their former lives, was particularly pertinent to the Hopi Katchina dolls he collected on his trip to the American West and subsequently kept close to him in his apartments in New York and Paris. These things had an impact on surrealist thought through the memories they stirred in him of the dances he had witnessed during his visit and recorded in the “Notebook” and his “Ode to Charles Fourier.” Breton’s “Hopi Notebook” adds a missing piece to our understanding of the premier avant-garde movement of the twentieth century through the way Breton, in his notes, sought to capture his evolving understanding of what it means to be human.
