Creating Problems LARC Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Art Building

Please mark your calendar for the Creating Problems LARC Exhibition on September 7th - 12th in the Student Art Gallery (Art 211). On September 7th, the Creating Problems LARC Group will host a Math Colloquium in Art room 212 from 4:10-5:10pm, and host a reception for their art exhibition in Art 211 from 5:10-6:10pm. Creating Problems was an experiment-driven, studio-based Math/Art experience (with faculty Cayla Skillin-Brauchle and Josh Liaison). The LARC students and faculty first worked together on a series of exploratory mathematical problems and artistic prompts to create common ground, enable critical conversation and fuel collaboration. Their early meetings included lively conversations about formal mathematical definitions versus artistic interpretations (e.g. symmetry), the visualization of systems and patterns, and the spectrum from abstraction (e.g. theoretical) to realism (e.g. analytical). Students and faculty then pursued individual and collaborative projects based in a full spectrum of artistic and mathematical thinking. Participants discovered that that artists and mathematicians use similar language and creative problem-solving processes, yet the different ways that they employ that language and those processes yield vastly different outcomes. Come and see and hear about the student and faculty projects that resulted from that discovery.

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.

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."
