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 First Annual Campus Eco-Treasure Hunt
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

*WU Campus - Outside

Check out this fun treasure hunt for ecologically significant plants on campus right before Wulapalooza starts! Individuals or teams (no larger than three please) use a map with clues and run around campus to find a dozen plants that the Campus Grounds team has planted for their ecological value (e.g., native habitat and/or food for insects, birds, etc.). The first 25 students who find all the plants, correctly write down their name, and return to the start table (Brown Field) get a free Wula shirt! All teams that finish and correctly write down plant names are entered into a chance to win a special mystery prize! The hunt starts at 12:05 sharp at our table at Brown Field, so arrive by noon or the others might get a head start! Brought to you by Willamette University's Sustainability Institute and Campus Grounds team. Follow us on the Sustainable WU FB page: https://www.facebook.com/sustainableWU
