Event Image Mind Zone: Therapists Behind the Front Lines
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall
*WU Campus

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/. Directed by Jan Haaken, 2014 (50 minutes) Director Jan Haaken will be present for Q & A

Travel Far, Pay no Fare: Post-graduate programs to go abroad
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

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.

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.

7:30 PM - 9:30 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.

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.

Diane Trevett ~ Calla Studio Fine Art

Diane's approach to drawing and painting comes from her emotional and spiritual response to the subject.  Flowers, fruit, sea shells, and land forms inspire her. She uses a scientific and illustrative approach to flower and plant study as in botanical illustration. However, she departs from that style in a contemporary and stylized way.
She works in a spacious studio/gallery adjacent to her home in Salem, Oregon, called “Calla Studio”. It is named after the calla lily, a flower with unique form and color that has been a long-time inspiration. This flower became a motif of her idol, Georgia O’Keeffe.
The subject of this painting for the SCO is a French horn with a morning glory flower.  
Diane explains: “I enjoy combining flowers or plants and musical instruments, where one morphs into the other,  emphasizing their common attributes of shape, form and structure”.
Diane received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Southern Oregon University in 1991, with a focus on drawing and painting.   Since then she has worked in arts management and is currently employed as an administrative assistant in the music department at Willamette University.

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

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

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

During September of 2014, Portland artists Tom Prochaska and Christy Wyckoff embarked on a journey to retrace the footsteps of Portland painter Charles Heaney (1897-1981), who often traveled to remote regions of Eastern Oregon in search of artistic inspiration.

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.

This exhibition has been organized to introduce visitors to Portland artist Mel Katz’s working process and is intended to supplement a fifty-year retrospective exhibition Mel Katz: On and Off the Wall taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between June 6 and August 23. 

Drawing has always been an important part of Portland artist Mel Katz’s working process. This exhibition features several of Katz's large scale drawings and small sculptures that he uses to work out some of the complex visual problems and challenges that he deals with in his final sculptures and offers valuable insights into the artist's creative process.
