Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky

Jan 17-Mar 24

Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 10 AM

Drones are in the news. They carry out targeted killings; they are manned with cameras to record movements on the ground; hobbyists fly them in public spaces; Amazon wants to use them to deliver their products. Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky's Drones, is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design. Lecture: Feb. 2, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium. Opening reception: Friday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

Feb 7

TUESDAY NIGHT RECORD CLUB: Blondie's Parallel Lines 

Lauren K. Woods Theatre - 7:30 PM

It’s just like book club but with albums!

Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights in Woods Theatre to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss…there will be special guest moderators and panelists at each event! This discussion will feature Blondie's Parallel Lines. This event is free but registration is required.

On Screen/in Person: Hilleman - A Perilous Quest to Save the World's Children

Feb 13

On Screen/in Person: Hilleman - A Perilous Quest to Save the World's Children 

Pollak Theatre - 7:30 PM

The Twentieth-Century was a dangerous time to be young. Before vaccines, there were a multitude of diseases that too often kept children from reaching even their teenage years. From the throws of that environment, Dr. Maurice Hilleman would emerge to lead a revolution in vaccine innovation and save many millions of young lives each year. But after being forced to retire at the height of his productivity in 1985, Hilleman watched as one company after another began to abandon vaccine research. When parents began choosing not to vaccinate their children in the 1990s the cruel irony became clear; Hilleman's unprecedented successes had allowed us to forget just how devastating childhood diseases could be. There will be a post screening Q&A with the director Donald Rayne Mitchell.

Another Night of Acapella Harmony: Doo Wop Explosion II

Mar 4

Another Night of Acapella Harmony: Doo Wop Explosion II 

Pollak Theatre - 7 PM

Our celebration of doo wop acappella harmony at the Pollak Theatre is back by popular demand. Born on the street corners of urban America, rhythm & blues and doo wop singing reached its peak in the 1950’s, but still has a strong following today. While doo wop singing began as an African American art form, by the late 1950’s it was enjoyed by singers of all races. Doo wop harmony in its purist form is acappella (without instruments or musical tracks).

The Mitzvah

Mar 9

The Mitzvah 

Wilson Auditorium - 4 PM

The Mitzvah (“The Good Deed”) is a one-person play that dramatically explores one of the most shocking stories of the Second World War. More than a hundred thousand German men — classified as “mischlinge” (the derogatory term the Nazis used to describe those descended from one or two Jewish grandparents) — fought in the German armed forces. The story of one such mischling is at the center of The Mitzvah and actor (and child of survivor) Roger Grunwald seamlessly transforms himself into an array of characters to tell that story. In addition to Christoph (the “mischling”), other characters include Schmuel, a Polish Jew from Bialystok and the play’s Chorus who offers edgy commentary that probes the boundary between the absurd and the horrific. The Mitzvah is a touching and tragic tale told in a powerful one-act solo performance created by Grunwald and Broadway veteran Annie McGreevey.
