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 "Gonzalo Guerrero: Hearsay and History in Myth-Making about Colonial Latin America"
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Friday, April 14, 3 p.m.
Hatfield Library — Hatfield Room


Abstract: “Gonzalo Guerrero” is the name given by sixteenth-century Spanish chroniclers to a shipwreck victim who was thought to have joined Maya society and became a Maya war lord who thwarted the Spanish conquest of Yucatan (Mexico). The retelling of the story has proven irresistible: as recently as fifteen years ago there appeared a newly discovered “autobiography” of Gonzalo—and it was not the first. Tracing this series of arresting accounts through the centuries in both Spanish-language and Anglo-American English-language traditions, we will consider how fiction emerged from history and hearsay in the Latin American literary tradition. Taking this celebrated example from the chronicles of the Spanish conquest period, we will contemplate the issue of how vaguely known historical events become the object of hearsay, eventually creating myths that are ultimately given the credence and weight of history. This lecture will be illustrated

Assistant Professor of Art Cayla Skillin-Brauchle will introduce her exhibition "SUPER SPEED!" at 5 PM on April 14th in the Roger Hull Lecture Hall at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. Drawing from field research in India, Skillin-Brauchle investigates the glossy appeal of speed and the reality when things actually move slowly.

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Maribeth Collins Lobby and a performance in the Atrium Gallery by Skillin-Brauchle entitled "Groundwork/Groundswell." This new performance art piece ruminates on the labor and optimism required to enact political change.

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

This play — Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy — is brutally quick, and is at once elemental and mercurial. It tells the story of a passionate couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, whose overwhelming will to power moves them to obliterate all obstacles, transgressing boundaries of fealty, family and fundamental human kindness. Come and experience the meteoric rise and tragic fall of one of theatre literature’s original power couples.
