Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea 
July 29 - October 22, 2017
Study Gallery

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and is home to a rich and diverse artistic tradition that includes sculpture, masks, dance ornaments, bark cloth, utensils, and vessels. Many of these objects are used ritualistically in great feasts, exchanges, and dance performances to capture and maintain spiritual power.

Capturing the Power of the Spirit World: Ritual Objects from Northeast Papua New Guinea features a number of objects collected by anthropologist David Eisler in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s and gifted by him to the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in 2014. 

As a special feature, Eisler will give an illustrated lecture on the concept of spiritual power in the art and culture of Papua New Guinea on September 7. Admission to the lecture is complimentary.

Organized by the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in partnership with the Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA), the exhibition chronicles the history of Crow’s Shadow over the past 25 years as it has emerged as an important printmaking studio located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon.

The exhibition features 75 prints drawn from the Crow’s Shadow Print Archive and focuses on themes of landscape, abstraction, portraiture, word and images, and media and process. Included in the exhibition are works by 50 Native and non-Native artists who have worked at CSIA, including Rick Bartow, Pat Boas, Joe Feddersen, Edgar Heap of Birds, James Lavadour, Truman Lowe, Lillian Pitt, Wendy Red Star, Storm Tharp, and Marie Watt, among others.

Event Image Exhibition | The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints | May 13 - Oct 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation

This has been organized by Director John Olbrantz and explores how the Pop and Op art movements, that emerged in the 1960s, had a profound influence on the development of psychedelic posters and fashion.

Looking back, the 1960s was a watershed period in American cultural history. The civil rights, women’s liberation, and LGBTQ movements, as well as the sexual revolution and widespread opposition and polarization to the Vietnam War, led to a search for new societal, cultural, and individual identities. Similarly, the 1960s was an equally important and influential decade in the history of twentieth century art, with the rise of Pop art, Op art, Minimalism, Performance art, Conceptual art, and a host of other movements and styles that would ultimately lead to the emergence of post-modern art in the mid-1970s and beyond. 

This exhibition has been organized as part of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love,and in conjunction with the "Behind the Beyond: Psychedelic Posters and Fashion in San Francisco, 1966-71" exhibition as well as the "The 60s: Pop and Op Art Prints from the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

Faculty Colloquium: Ortwin Knorr
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Putnam University Center

Please join us Friday, September 29nd at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge for our third Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided. Presenter: Ortwin Knorr, Associate Professor of Classics Title: Using Digital Technology in Teaching a College Colloquium about Film Integrating digital technology into one’s own teaching can be relatively simple yet pay great dividends, as my experience with my College Colloquium, “Ancient Greece and Rome in the Movies,” may demonstrate. In this presentation, I will discuss my use of simple Powerpoints for pre- and post-tests as well as short lectures on visual concepts; the use of a course blog to draw out more reserved students and to start a discussion outside of class; writing assignments that are tied to existing contributor-fed sites such as the Internet Movie Database (imdb); and the final course project, the students’ creation of their own illustrated website about a movie or movie-related topic of their choice, using free and easy-to-learn software like weebly or wix. Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators

Event Image Jordy Searcy: Concert and Tea!
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join WEB for a night of incredible music and delicious tea! Enjoy music by Nashville artist Jordy Searcy accompanied by tea and treats.

Jordy Searcy is one of the best new voices you'll hear, but beyond that, he knows how to write and perform in a way that really showcases his pipes. All of the coaches on The Voice had something good to say about him when he climbed the ranks of the television singing competition in 2014, and he used the momentum from the show to launch an extensive tour of the Southeast.

The tour went a little different than most first tours do, and that’s because it was filled with established fans that were bursting at the seams to hear more new music from Jordy. But because he only wears shoes when he skateboards, and his hairy vegan drummer named Scooter loyally follows him on the road, first timers have plenty to get excited about as well.

Jordy eventually landed in Nashville, TN, and that’s where you’ll find him absorbing the world around him and turning it into things like Seasons, his debut EP. Seasons shot up to #5 on Apple Music and #7 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, and his fans aren’t subtle about wanting more. But quality wins over quantity for Jordy, so he’ll continue to perform his new music night after night, for 15 people or 15 million, until he finds the songs that really stick.
