Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Distilled: Here Come the Androgynes!
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Here Come the Androgynes! A Forgotten Episode In Ancient Christianity At The Half Penny on April 4 at 7:30 p.m., Willamette University’s “Distilled: Pub Talks” series will feature a talk from historian and religious studies professor Stephen Patterson, who will present “Here Come the Androgynes! A Forgotten Episode In Ancient Christianity.” “Before early Christians said anything new about God, Jesus, death, resurrection, eternal life or sin, they said something new about gender: 'There is no male and female,'" says Patterson. "Yes, the followers of Jesus dabbled in strategic androgyny, and I’ve got pictures!" Before becoming the George H. Atkinson Professor of Religious and Ethical Studies at Willamette University in 2010, Patterson taught for more than 20 years at Eden Seminary in St. Louis, and, as a fellow of the Westar Institute, he chaired the Jesus Seminar on Christian Origins. In nine books and more than 75 essays, Patterson has explored various aspects of Christian origins, but he is best known for his work on the Gospel of Thomas. A former Fulbright Fellow, he holds graduate degrees from Harvard and the Claremont Graduate University, where, in 1988, he earned a doctorate in religion. Just south of Madrona at 3743 Commercial St. S., The Half Penny is open to all ages until 9 p.m.

Paintings and Prints: The Fortunes of Michelangelo's "Last Judgement" in Late Sixteenth Century Art As part of a series of special events accompanying the exhibition Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible, guest speaker Alessandra Baroni will explore the development of printmaking processes in and outside Rome in the late sixteenth century, focusing, in particular, on the relationship between painters, draftsmen and printmakers in the production of images after Michelangelo’s masterpiece at the Sistine Chapel.

Professor Alessandra Baroni

After receiving her PhD from the University of Utrecht, Prof. Baroni spent a period of research at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow. She has extensively published on sixteenth-century art and theory, focusing primarily on the study of drawings and prints. She teaches at the University of Rochester and the Università di Arezzo, Italy.

This lecture is offered conjunction with the Holy Beauty: Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible exhibition taking place at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art between February 10 and April 29, 2018.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Please join us Friday, April 6th, at 3 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our eighth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Presenter: Tabitha Knight, Assistant Professor of Economics Title: “Gender and Public Spending: A Conceptual Model of Employment, an Empirical Application, and Paths for Future Work” Abstract: Women and men face largely differing opportunities and constraints in society, especially as they relate to the fundamental notion of one’s livelihood. With a focus on the distinct roles, options, and limitations women and men are faced with in today’s society, I explore a conceptual model of employment incorporating both supply and demand-side factors, apply the main tenets to U.S. data, and provide paths for future work incorporating gender dynamics into discussions of the impacts of public policy options on women’s and men’s employment. The focus of this paper is on public spending on healthcare and education in particular as such spending is likely to affect both women’s and men’s employment outcomes and opportunities though the magnitudes of the effects may differ strongly by gender due to social norms and occupational segregation. Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators

Northwest Percussion Festival

The Northwest Percussion Festival was founded in 1985 in an effort to give classical percussion ensembles from around the Northwest region a chance to perform for one another and exchange repertoire ideas. The weekend’s events will feature performances by 14 ensembles from Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California, in addition to the Friday evening concert with guest artist Nancy Zeltsman. The continued growth and success of the Northwest Percussion Festival is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of the regions percussion community, striving to advocate and advance the percussive arts.

Events will include performances, master classes, clinic and the opportunity to work with the guest artist. This festival is an opportunity like no other in the region for students to not only perform, but experience other ensembles perform a plethora of canonic works for percussion ensemble. Each year, the event includes nationally recognized guest artists and clinicians, in addition to an evening performance by the ensemble directors.

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Event Image Lecture| Science-Based Conservation: Technology vs. Perception
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Dr. Bill Wei (Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, Amsterdam) discusses decisions that are made every day about the treatment of objects of art and cultural heritage. Advanced, “objective” techniques are used to provide increasingly precise information on objects. Furthermore, new technologies are being developed for the so-called virtual retouching. However, the final decision on what to do with an object and what it is supposed to look like afterwards is ultimately “subjective”, and is based on the opinions and perceptions of the museum professionals involved in the decision-making process. This talk takes a look at the complex interaction between (high-technology) conservation science and perception in decisions about the conservation treatment of valuable objects.

Intersectionality and the Categories that Intersect
4:15 PM - 6:00 PM

*WU Campus - Eaton Hall

Philosophy talk with  Professor Sally Markowtiz

Abstract: In the last several decades, mainstream feminist thought has been transformed by the growing realization that gender and gender oppression must be understood intersectionally (to use Kimberlée Crenshaw’s famous term). That is to say, gender cannot be understood in isolation from other important systems of social classification and hierarchy-- for example, from race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation. But, paradoxically, even while many intersectional theorists take their work to be challenging the autonomy of such intersecting categories, the very metaphor of the intersection implies that these categories are in some important respect autonomous, or at least separable. My talk will explore this paradox and, drawing on an understanding of the historical construction of modern Western categories of race and gender, suggest that the categories of race and gender are intertwined in a deeper way than most intersectional theories can easily address.

Event Image Ordering Chaos: Ovidian Cosmology and Plato’s Timaeus (CASA Research Colloquium)
4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

*WU Campus - Eaton Hall

Dr. Peter Kelly (NUI Galway, Ireland)


The Metamorphoses opens with an account of how the cosmos is formed from primordial chaos. Ovid describes how the world is given shape by the universal demiurge; however, random and chaotic forces appear to remain present beneath this orderly structure. This paper will examine the philosophical underpinnings of Ovid’s account of cosmogony at the beginning of the Metamorphoses. It will argue that Ovid integrates a series of contrasting philosophical viewpoints, namely the divine teleology of Plato and the materialism of Lucretian physics. This has the ultimate effect of undermining the notion that it is possible to hold a single or stable view of the cosmos, while making flux and chaos fundamental to the structure of the text and world alike. This paper will also attempt to read Ovid’s combination of myth and natural philosophy at the beginning of the Metamorphoses in terms of Plato’s concept of the εἰκὼς μῦθος, traditionally translated as ‘likely myth’, from the Timaeus.

Willamette University features the University Chamber Orchestra and the University Wind Ensemble in their Spring Concert

SALEM, Ore.—On Sunday, April 15th, 3:00pm in Hudson Hall, the University Chamber orchestra, led by guest conductor, Daniel Rouslin, will feature the two winners of the Concerto-aria competition held in November 2017. Principal flutist, Lauren Collar will perform the Finale movement of Carl Reinecke’s Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, and soprano, Lena Heumann will sing the aria, “Batti, batti, o bel Masetto,” from Mozart’s opera, Don Giovanni.

Concluding the program will be three movements from Symphony No. 4 in C Minor (“The Tragic”) by Franz Schubert. Schubert composed this work in 1816 when he was just 19. Although the subtitle, “Tragic” is from Schubert, himself, it should be noted that all of the movements performed at this concert end in a major key as the mood transforms from dark to bright.


The Willamette University Wind Ensemble
, conducted by John Skelton, will feature Cameron Lantz, tuba soloist on Empirical Refractions for Tuba and Wind Ensemble by Alex Hilliard. Cameron, from Alameda California, is a senior who majors in Civic Communication and Media.  He writes and performs music in his free time. He is a vocalist and performs on tuba, piano and trumpet.

The band's second work will be American Elegy by Frank Ticheli which was written in memory of students who lost their lives in the Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999 and to honor their survivors. Their program will conclude with Culloden by Julie Giroux. This three movement symphony for band was inspired by the people and events surrounding the battle of Culloden, Scotland in which more than 1800 Scots, Irish and English perished in less than 30 minutes. The battle took place on April 16, 1746.

The concert is free and without ticket.  For further information contact the Willamette University Music Department at 503-370-6255.

What would it be like to step from a museum gallery directly into an intriguing work of art? Have you ever thought it, or wished it? Normally we might only be able to do this in an imaginative dream, but Willamette University student Anna Neshyba '18 has been hard at work transforming this very scenario into a “virtual reality” with two artworks at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. Her “Pop-Up Virtual Reality Museum Experience” will take place on the following dates at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art:

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Please join us Friday, April 27th, at 4:15 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our twelfth and last Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Presenter: Jenny Orr, Professor of Computer Science Title: “Explorations in Machine Learning” Abstract: Machine learning (ML) drives much of today’s smart technology, from Siri to smart cars. The recent resurgence and success of ML are primarily due to three factors: the explosion of data, dramatic increases in processing speeds, and the emergence of powerful, new learning algorithms, particularly deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) for image analysis. I will present a brief overview of ML and DCNN and illustrate how they are used in several image-based applications including handwritten digit recognition and atmospheric cloud coverage. Cloud coverage estimation is important because it is one of the largest sources of uncertainty in today’s climate models. Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.

Holy Beauty:
Northern Renaissance Prints Discovered in an Early English Bible


Organized by Professor Ricardo De Mambro Santos, the exhibition features as its centerpiece the Hexham Abbey Bible, a rare 17th-century English Bible printed in Cambridge, England in 1629. The Bible includes 110 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints that were interpolated into the volume after it was printed.

Prints within the Bible include works attributed to Philip Galle (Dutch, 1537-1612), after Maarten van Heemskerck (Dutch, 1498-1574); Hieronymus Cock (Flemish, 1518-1579), Jan Sadeler (Flemish, 1550-1600), and Maerten de Vos (Flemish, 1532-1603), among others.  

Visitors will have an opportunity to scroll through the Bible via touch screens in the Study Gallery. In addition, the exhibition will include 35 16th-century Dutch and Flemish prints—some like those found in the Bible and others of the period—on view in the Print Study Center and the Maribeth Collins Lobby.

Please join us Friday, April 27th, at 4:15 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our twelfth and last Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Presenter: Jenny Orr, Professor of Computer Science Title: “Explorations in Machine Learning” Abstract: Machine learning (ML) drives much of today’s smart technology, from Siri to smart cars. The recent resurgence and success of ML are primarily due to three factors: the explosion of data, dramatic increases in processing speeds, and the emergence of powerful, new learning algorithms, particularly deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) for image analysis. I will present a brief overview of ML and DCNN and illustrate how they are used in several image-based applications including handwritten digit recognition and atmospheric cloud coverage. Cloud coverage estimation is important because it is one of the largest sources of uncertainty in today’s climate models. Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there. Ellen Eisenberg and Bill Kelm Faculty Colloquium Coordinators
