*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.

Richard Francaviglia, Visiting Professor of Religious Studies

Despite the popular belief that Islam has been forced into retreat in the U.S. since September 11, 2001, Dr. Francaviglia will discuss how just the opposite has occurred - interest in Islam is at an all-time high, conversions are increasing, and new mosque and cultural center construction is flourishing.
