10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group. At the turn of the last century, Wiggins was considered one of the foremost women photographers in America. A major exhibition of her work will open February 14 and continue through April 26, 2015, in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins was a painter, poet and singer, as well as an instructor, essayist and speaker on art topics. But it was as a photographer that she established herself as an internationally recognized artist. From the late 1890s until 1910, her photographs were exhibited throughout the United States, as well as Paris, Vienna and London.

Event Image Exhibition | Alexandra Opie: Echo | April 18 - May 17, 2015
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

Event Image The Country Wife (MATINEE)
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

By: William Wycherly
Director: Jonathan Cole


A true gem of the Comedy of Manners genre, The Country Wife paints a frank picture of a rakish hero who will go to any length to engage in scandalous liaisons with the wives of his courtly colleagues. Ribaldry, sparkling wordplay, and old fashioned dirty tricks abound in this gleefully wicked romp through the inner chambers of 17th century London’s upper crust.

Event Image 2015 Dempsey Environmental Lecture--Ma Jun
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

Dempsey Environmental Lecture 2015 “Transparency and China’s Green Choice” Ma Jun Chinese environmentalist, scholar and writer Monday, April 20, 7:30 p.m. Smith Auditorium, Willamette University Free About the speaker Through his groundbreaking efforts to curb pollution in his homeland, Ma Jun is internationally renowned as one of China’s most successful environmental activists. As the founder of the not-for-profit Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE), he has exposed more than 97,000 air and water violations by local and multinational companies operating in China. Ma Jun has convinced more than 600 companies in China — the world’s largest economy — to publicly disclose their plans and cleanup efforts, and he’s begun working collaboratively with Wal-Mart, Nike, GE and other major brands to adopt more sustainable business practices. With the help of the Internet, staffers and a dedicated following of Chinese volunteers, Ma Jun is now launching a new app to provide public, real-time data on air and water quality in China. Time magazine named Ma Jun as one of the World’s 100 Most Influential People in 2006. In 2012, he won the Goldman Environmental Prize and made the list of Foreign Policy Top 100 Global Thinkers. A former investigative journalist, Ma Jun is the author of “China’s Water Crisis,” which has been compared to Rachel Carson’s trailblazing book, “Silent Spring.” His lecture at Willamette University marks Ma Jun’s first — and only — public appearance in the United States this year.

Literacy-Based Interactive Art Display (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Come to the Salem Public Library between April 21st and May 1st to see a literacy-based, interactive art display created by local Grant Community School students. Add your own drawing to share your love of reading, help grow the display and support our students. This art project was inspired by Barbara Cooney’s book, Miss Rumphius. In her life, Miss Rumphius wants to travel around the world, live by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. After reading the book, a group of third graders created canvases that show something each student might want to do to make the world more beautiful. After listening to the story of Miss Rumphius, and seeing the third graders’ artwork,a kindergarten class made their own drawings – they too were asked what they might want to do to make the world more beautiful. Are you ready to be inspired by Miss Rumphius and our artwork? Please help us grow our display by making your own drawing showing or telling us what you might want to do to make the world more beautiful! When? April 21st – May 1st Where?

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

On Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at 7:30pm in the Rogers Rehearsal Hall, Leo Records recording artists Mike Nord and Georg Hofmann will be joined by virtuoso flutist Andreas Stahel for an evening of contemporary improvised music. In their unique, improvisational blend of acoustic and electronic sounds, Nord, Hofmann, and Stahel move seamlessly from ambient textures to hard grooves and on to lyricism.  The trio’s work is influenced by their backgrounds as jazz musicians, their mutual affinity for folk and classical traditions from around the world, and their embrace of abstract new music.

Nord and Hoffman have worked together for three decades in both musical groups and in collaboration with visual artists, actors, and dancers, most recently with the dance theater ensemble Noru Ka Soru Ka.  They have performed in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Mexico, and the US.  Their most recent release Music of Noru Ka Soru Ka is on the Leo Records label.  Both Nord and Hoffman had separately collaborated with Stahel, first playing all together when he joined Noru Ka Soru Ka for a performance in 2013.  Nord, Hofmann, and Stahel did their first tour and recording as a trio in 2014, laying the groundwork for the April 21, 2015 performance and an album release later in the year.

Nord, a Willamette University music professor performs on guitar and computer electronics. Hofmann, playing drums and percussion, and Stahel performing on contrabass, bass, and alto flutes as well as voice are based in Switzerland.  Both are on the faculty of the Konservatorium Winterthur.

All Day

Come to the Salem Public Library between April 21st and May 1st to see a literacy-based, interactive art display created by local Grant Community School students. Add your own drawing to share your love of reading, help grow the display and support our students. This art project was inspired by Barbara Cooney’s book, Miss Rumphius. In her life, Miss Rumphius wants to travel around the world, live by the sea, and do something to make the world more beautiful. After reading the book, a group of third graders created canvases that show something each student might want to do to make the world more beautiful. After listening to the story of Miss Rumphius, and seeing the third graders’ artwork,a kindergarten class made their own drawings – they too were asked what they might want to do to make the world more beautiful. Are you ready to be inspired by Miss Rumphius and our artwork? Please help us grow our display by making your own drawing showing or telling us what you might want to do to make the world more beautiful! When? April 21st – May 1st Where?

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

Event Image Exhibition | Myra Albert Wiggins: A Photographer's Life | Feb. 14 - April 26, 2015
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Myra Albert Wiggins (1869-1956) was a Salem photographer and early member of Alfred Stieglitz’s Photo-Secessionist Group. At the turn of the last century, Wiggins was considered one of the foremost women photographers in America. A major exhibition of her work will open February 14 and continue through April 26, 2015, in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Born and raised in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins was a painter, poet and singer, as well as an instructor, essayist and speaker on art topics. But it was as a photographer that she established herself as an internationally recognized artist. From the late 1890s until 1910, her photographs were exhibited throughout the United States, as well as Paris, Vienna and London.

Event Image Plato and Aristotle on Body and Soul
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

*WU Campus - Eaton Hall

Dr. Stasinos V. Stavrianeas Lecturer in Philosophy University of Patras (Greece) Aristotle’s account of the relation between body and soul as a unity between matter and form, is often described as a via media between Platonic dualism and pre-Socratic versions of materialism. In certain respects this picture distorts the contrast between the two conceptions. First, Plato, especially in later dialogues, suggests that the soul shares a number of features with material bodies. What is distinctive of the Platonic conception of the soul is not its immateriality, but rather its being a self-moving entity responsible for initiating bodily movement. Second, Aristotle can be read as holding a moderate dualist position: the soul is an immaterial substance, dependent on the body but not constituted by it. If so then the contrast between the Platonic and the Aristotelian conceptions of the soul as related to the body turns not on the immateriality of the former, but rather on the way it is supposed to control and get affected by bodily movement in general. I explore how Plato’s effort to explain this interaction leads to a conception of the soul that involves material characteristics, and, secondly, how Aristotle’s effort to disentangle the soul from any material characteristics can be made sensible within his physics. I also review the Platonic and the Aristotelian hierarchical taxonomy of living beings (their views on scala naturae), illustrating their divergent motivations in explaining how the soul relates to the body.

Featuring Male Ensemble Willamette, Voce Femminile, and the Willamette Chamber Choir.

The final choral concert of the year is just around the corner at Willamette University.  It will be presented on Sunday, April 26, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in Hudson Hall, Rogers Music Center.

As always, the literature for the concert will be varied.   Male Ensemble Willamette will perform three arrangements written specifically for the group.  Current student Jesse Anderson has arranged "Friends" by Flight of the Conchords.  Graduating senior Brian Highkin has arranged a medley of Beatles tunes "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "Carry That Weight", and "The End."  Highkin along with MEW member Grant Burleigh will play guitar on this tune.   Alumnus Michael Murray has arranged "Yes It Is" by the Beatles.  The groups signature piece "Brothers, Sing On!" will end the set .

Voce Femminile will premiere a composition by Willamette University alumnus Derek Sup (2014) called "Love" based on the well-known passage from I Corinthians 13.

After reading the book, a group of third graders created canvases that show something each student might want to do to make the world more beautiful. After listening to the story of Miss Rumphius, and seeing the third graders’ artwork,a kindergarten class made their own drawings – they too were asked what they might want to do to make the world more beautiful. Are you ready to be inspired by Miss Rumphius and our artwork? Please help us grow our display by making your own drawing showing or telling us what you might want to do to make the world more beautiful! When? April 21st – May 1st Where?

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Mind Zone: Therapists Behind the Front Lines Presented with support from the Department of Psychology Mind Zone follows therapists with the 113th Army Combat Stress Control detachment as they carry out two conflicting missions: protecting soldiers from battle fatigue and keeping these same soldiers in the fight. With psychiatric casualties mounting, the United States Army ups the deployment of mental health detachments to war zones—an undertaking on a scale previously unimaginable. As the 113th is deployed to Afghanistan and trains for their dual roles as soldiers and healers, Colonel David Rabb and his team of therapists are equipped with a wide arsenal of psychological techniques. But as they arrive to replace the previous Combat Stress Control unit, they learn the gravity of the tasks ahead and face daunting challenges in carrying out their conflicting missions. The documentary moves between the battle zone and the home front as therapists working at the Veterans Administration reflect back on what could have been done to prevent combat stress conditions in theater. Mind Zone offers a rarely seen glimpse of heated debates within the field of psychology over diagnosis and treatment of combat conditions, and the limits of categories such as post-traumatic stress disorder in capturing the psychological impacts of warfare. : http://mindzonemovie.com/.

You’ve heard of the U.S. Student Fulbright program—it takes young Americans abroad for an academic year to conduct research, do creative or service-infused projects, or teach English. Perhaps you’ve heard of programs like the British Marshall scholarship (2 years of grad study anywhere in the UK); the Mitchell scholarship (2 years of grad work in Ireland); or the Luce Scholars program (funds young professionals for a year in an Asian country). How about the Erasmus Mundus program (2 years grad work in an EU country)? The German Marshall Fund’s Urban Fellowships? The Bosch fellowships? The Rangel Fellowships? What about resources for finding reputable teaching programs abroad? It’s a big world out there, and there is funding to get you there for academic work, independent research or creative projects, or professional placements! Whether you are a graduating senior and thinking about post-graduation planning, or a junior and getting started on planning to get into applicant pools before you graduate, this information session can give you some ideas to consider as you look to life beyond the WU Bubble. Monique Bourque, director of Student Academic Grants and Awards, will explain how application processes can work if you apply through Willamette, explain the resources open to you as an alum (spoilers: she’s only an email away); and answer questions about these and other programs. 4:00-5:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 28, in the World Language Studio in the Language Learning Center in Ford Hall.

Ribaldry, sparkling wordplay, and old fashioned dirty tricks abound in this gleefully wicked romp through the inner chambers of 17th century London’s upper crust.

Festival of Ridvan (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

This annual Baha'i festival commemorates the 12 days (April 21-May 2, 1863) when Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i Faith, resided in a garden called Ridvan (Paradise) in Baghdad, Iraq. At this time he publicly proclaimed his mission as God's messenger for this age. The first (April 21), ninth (April 29), and twelfth (May 2) days are observed as holy days when work is suspended.
Event Image Exhibition | Alexandra Opie: Echo | April 18 - May 17, 2015
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Alexandra Opie is an associate professor of art at Willamette University, where she teaches photography and electronic media. An exhibition of her recent work entitled "Alexandra Opie: Echo" opens April 18 and continues through May 17, 2015, in the Atrium Gallery at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

In her most recent body of work, Opie explores the tension between the old and the new by combining one of the earliest photographic processes, the tintype, with present-day technology and subjects. Contemporary figures assume the attitudes of those in antique images while drawings of nineteenth-century dress are superimposed over them using in-camera masks.

Art and Music Festival
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

A celebration of music and artwork! A chance for students to create artwork to complement their repertoire. Music and art-making are intertwined and often enrich one another. Creating art along with music is like escaping into another world and emerging with a souvenir. For this recital, students are encouraged to create a piece of artwork inspired by their musical selection. As they practice and live with the music, please consider having the student also create a concrete realization of their abstract musical vision. Visit our website for more information. http://willamette.edu/org/mtna/festival/index.html
