Event Image Works by Them, Words by Them (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Art Building

Part of Jordis Miller's Carson Grant project, this art display features both visual and written works from patients at the Oregon State Hospital in Salem. This project focuses on understanding art done by the mentally ill, known in the art world as Art Brut, Raw Art or Outsider Art. Specifically this project examines why the artist should be elevated in understanding this genre of art. By exhibiting art from the hospital on Willamette's campus, this project aims to bridge the gap between the two communities.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Whiting Tennis is a Seattle-based mixed media artist who merges interests in folk and Pop art with surrealism in his artworks, which include paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and collages. Often derived from doodles and automatic drawings, his art combines Western landscapes, lonely forms, and dilapidated buildings to create a distinctly American narrative.

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Come and hear students Katie Buonocore, Nina Nolen, Andrés Oswill, and Dylan Sheldon discuss their LGBTQ experiences on campus - what is going right, what can be improved, and what we can do to help.

Are there enough resources for queer students? What can we do to improved the LGBTQ climate on this campus? These are some of the questions we hope to answer.

The University Convocation series is facilitated through the Office of the Chaplains and planned by the students of IDS 202 (Convo: Campus/Community/Cosmos).
Mindfulness Meditation
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.

Beginners are most welcome!
FRESH FRUIT, BROKEN BODIES: MIGRANT FARMWORKERS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, Seth Holmes
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Based on five years of research in the field (including berry-picking and traveling with migrants back and forth from Oaxaca up the West Coast), this lecture (and new book by the same name) explores how market forces, anti-immigrant sentiment, and racism undermine health and health care. The discussion examines structural and symbolic violence, medicalization, and the clinical gaze as they affect the experiences and perceptions of a vertical slice of indigenous Mexican migrant farm workers, farm owners, doctors, and nurses. This work analyzes the ways in which socially structured suffering comes to be perceived as normal and natural in society and in health care, especially through imputations of ethnic body difference.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alisa Alexander, Ph.D. Student, UC Santa Barbara, and Willamette University graduate (2010), will present a lecture entitled, "Institutionalizing Otherness: Outsider Artists and Art History."  She will speak on the presence of Outsider Art among important institutions such as the 2013 Venice Biennale and its widespread popularity within the world of contemporary art.
