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.”

Join the Hallie Ford Museum of Art and the Marion-Polk Food Share and help us fight hunger during the month of April. 

Willamette Community Members: your WU id card always provides you with free admission. So on your next visit we invite you to give to our larger community and bring a can or two of food. 

General Public: Bring in 2 nonperishable food items and receive 1 free museum admission.

The Marion-Polk Food Share is our regional food bank which provides emergency food to more than 40,000 people, including 14,000 children, each month. Your food donations are greatly appreciated and make a difference.

Event Image Laser ablation Studies Using Ultrafast Pulsed Lasers
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Collins Science Center

Michaela Kleinert, Associate Professor of Physics, will speak about her recent research. Since its invention in 1960, the laser has become an integral part of our society. While most everyday lasers are cw (continuous wave) lasers of low power – for example barcode scanners at the grocery checkout –, powerful pulsed lasers that produce extremely short bursts of light (between only a billionth and a millionth of a billionth of a second long!) find more specialized applications both in research and industry. From the creation of super-hydrophobic surfaces that are completely water-repellent to the formation of micrometer sized structures that guide light or allow computers to work properly, from identifying explosives at long range to determining the chemical composition of ancient coins or even rocks on Mars – if you can imagine it, there is a laser to do the job! A generous donation of two 10-ps pulsed laser systems (ESI, Beaverton) has allowed me to enter this fascinating field of research, and in this talk I will discuss projects that are currently being investigated in my research lab. I will introduce the physics of laser/material interaction that leads to the formation of microstructures on metallic surfaces. I will also talk about the plasma plume, the ejected material that forms above the surface and that can be a blessing and a curse: A dense plume leads to strong recombination lines as the electrons recombine with their respective ions. This is advantageous when investigating laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) since it amplifies the characteristic chemical fingerprints that allow us to identify unknown samples. On the other hand, a large plasma plume also acts as a shield and prevents the laser light from hitting the surface (plasma shielding). This of course is not desired when the goal is to pattern the surface in a controlled way (micromachining).
Open Lap Swim

*WU Campus - Sparks Center

The pool in Sparks is open for lap swim to anyone with a WU ID or Sparks User Pass. There are a few goggles available to use as well--just ask the lifeguards!

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Rogers Music Center

Friday, April 7, 7 p.m.
Hudson Hall — Rogers Music Center

A pre-concert talk begins at 6:45 p.m.

Also in Rogers Music Center's Hudson Hall on April 7, the public is welcome to observe master classes for Willamette University students from 1–4 p.m. Admission to the master classes is free. 

Few flutists in history have made such indelible marks in so many musical circles. From jazz to pop to classical (Orchestra, chamber & solo) to television to film to the concert hall to his teaching studio, Jim is grateful for the variety his professional life has provided. 
He is professor of Flute, Chamber Music and Music Technology at The Colburn Conservatory of Music, and Professor of Practice/Coordinator of Flute Studies at The USC Thornton School of Music where has was awarded the Mellon Mentoring Award and The Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. His summer masterclass, Beyond The Masterclass is now in its ninth year. He has been a faculty member of the Music Academy of the West since 2013. Jim has taught hundreds of flutists, many of them going on to successful orchestral and teaching careers, holding Principal Flute chairs in major symphonies around the world.

Bryan Pezzone is the consummate crossover pianist of his generation. He has excelled in classical, contemporary, jazz, and experimental genres and is known for both his versatility and virtuosity as a performing artist, improviser and composer. He has performed with many major symphony orchestra associations, has toured widely with the jazz group Free Flight, and is known in the Los Angeles area as one of the primary free-lance pianists for film and television soundtrack recording, contemporary music premieres, and chamber music accompanying. 
In addition, Bryan has been the principal pianist with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra from its inception in 1991 through 1999, has received on-screen credit for his performance on the soundtrack of "The Game" (with Michael Douglas), The Bucket List, The Kite Runner, Lars and the Real Girl, Flipped, City By the Sea and has been the pianist on virtually all of the cartoons released by Warner Brothers and Disney (Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Goof Troop, Bonkers) from 1990-2002.
