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 Lecture | Contentious Faith and Heroic Art in the Low Countries around 1600
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

As part of a series of special events accompanying the exhibition Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible, guest speaker Professor Jeffrey Chipps Smith will address how Protestant and Catholic artists developed strategies to meet the confessional needs of their communities.

As the Protestant Reformation spread across Europe, it challenged not only the Roman Catholic Church but also the historical role of religious art. Jean Calvin and others declared that churches should be emptied of their religious art since it was too often misused and idolized. The first waves of iconoclasm swept through the southern and northern Netherlands in 1566-67. This was soon followed by the civil war that permanently divided the Low Countries.This lecture is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018. 

Professor Jeffrey Chipps Smith
After receiving his PhD on Northern Renaissance Art from Columbia University, he has taught since 1979 at the University of Texas in Austin. His publications range widely on German and Netherlandish art from 1400 to 1700, focusing in particular on religious topics. His book, The Northern Renaissance (London: Phaidon Press, 2004), has been reprinted several times and translated into Greek in 2005.

This lecture is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018.
