Event Image Exhibition | Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions | Feb. 11 - April 30, 2017
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to feature the ceramic work and drawings of nationally recognized Port Townsend, Washington artist Anne Hirondelle (née Harvey). “Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions” opens February 11 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center and continues through April 30, 2017.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director says, “Throughout her long and prolific career, Hirondelle has pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium, making functional vessels and abstract sculptures that are warmly alive and visually engaging. This exhibition explores a period of time during the past six to eight years where her work evolved into an intriguing exploration of abstract vessels where function gives way to sculptural possibilities.”

Event Image The Battle of Alarcos (1195): Musealization Of a Medieval Battlefield (CASA Research Colloquium)
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

*WU Campus - Eaton Hall

Mario Ramírez Galán (Universidad de Alcalá, Spain)

The medieval battle of Alarcos (1195) was the last great victory of Moslem against Christian troops in Spain. Having received information that the Almohad caliph Yaqub al-Mansur was gravely ill in Marrakesh, King Alphonso VIII of Castile decided to attack the Almohad possessions in Spain. Spanish and Moorish troops clashed at the castle of Alarcos, which marked the southernmost extension of Alphonso's realm. The battle ended in a decisive, but ultimately short-lived victory for the Moors. Dr. Ramírez Galán will show how the battle field can be preserved and reconstructed so that modern visitors can walk through the site and experience the battle in its different stages.

All is right with the world when Dido, the Queen of Carthage, finally plans to marry her true love, the Trojan hero Aeneas. However, when a sorceress plots Carthage’s demise, it is Dido and Aeneas who find themselves at the center of her master plan. Will their love—and they themselves—survive?
