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.

The Willamette Monologues: A Personal Theory
12:00 PM

Students for Feminism will be hosting Willamette's first ever production of The Willamette Monologues: A Personal Theory Friday, February 28th at 7pm and Sunday, March 2nd at noon.The performance will be free though donations are encouraged and made to Mid Valley Women's Crisis Center. Historically, Willamette’s Students for Feminism has produced an annual performance of Eve Ensler’s play, The Vagina Monologues. Although, as an organization, we still hope to achieve the The Monologues’ goals of empowerment and raised awareness of gender-based violence, this year we hope to expand the inclusiveness of our performance by producing a student written collection of memoirs entitled The Willamette Monologues: A Personal Theory. In addition to making the production more applicable to the lives and experiences of current Willamette students, we also hope to make room for voices that The Vagina Monologues frequently silences. *includes content that may be emotionally triggering*

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Often derived from doodles and automatic drawings, his art combines Western landscapes, lonely forms, and dilapidated buildings to create a distinctly American narrative. Organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition will feature a range of work from the past 10 years.
