A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The exhibit in the Norlin Library 3rd floor NW Triptych gallery (across from Special Collections), "Opening the Tibetan Treasury of Knowledge: Textual Transmission and Cultural Preservation," highlights key transformations in the production of Tibetan texts—from woodblock prints to digital searchable text. The display includes woodblock carvings of The Treasury of Knowledge, which is among the texts generously gifted by the Tsadra Foundation to the CU-Boulder Libraries.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

Visual AIDS initiates public actions and programs, publishes an annual poster and copyright-free broadsides, and acts as press coordinator and clearing house for projects for Day Without Art / World AIDS Day.

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

"Knocking on America’s (and Heaven’s) Door: Shlomo Carlebach’s Challenge in Shifting and Sifting American Jewish Identity"

With Moshe-David HaCohen, Inaugural Visiting Fellow in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive


Wednesday, December 3 @ 12PM

Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated readings


This colloquium will provide a unique interdisciplinary environment for scholars to share and discuss research on modern American Jewish culture and identity. Moshe-David HaCohen will present his research on Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, demonstrating how this pivotal figure provides a prism to the challenges, changes and questions of self-identification that Post-Holocaust American Jewry faced in the second half of the twentieth century. The materials of the Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi Collection, housed in the CU Boulder Archives, will provide basis of comparison between Reb Zalman and Shlomo Carlebach and the similarities and differences of choices each figure made in their engagement and interaction with modern American society.


Moshe-David HaCohen is a Presidential Fellowship Doctoral Candidate at the Department of History of the University of Haifa in Israel. In his dissertation, Moshe-David applies interdisciplinary resources in order to explore the adaptation of Jewish tradition through the interaction of Shlomo Carlebach with the "counterculture" of the Sixties in the United States. He has taken part in international academic conferences and workshops on contemporary Jewish identity, religion and culture and has been honored as the inaugural Visiting Fellow in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive at the University of Colorado.


Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive Visiting Scholar Fellowship:

The University of Colorado’s Libraries and Archives along with the Program in Jewish Studies annually support a visiting scholar, whose research interests take advantage of the unique resources in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism archive. The Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive collects materials examining Judaism and the Jewish experience as a religious re-engagement, social movement, and philosophy of spiritual transformation in America from the late 1940s to the present.

AIA Lecture Series: Citizen-Soldiers in Classical Antiquity
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Citizen-soldiers provided the foundation for highly effective armies and broad political participation in ancient Greece and Rome. The rise of large numbers of free citizens able to arm themselves at their own expense created fertile ground for revolutionary developments and the establishment of democratic and republican institutions in the ancient Mediterranean world. This talk will begin with earlier political and military trends in Mesopotamia and Egypt and then proceed to discuss unique characteristics of Greece and Rome that contributed to mass participation in warfare and politics.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

ALTERNATE ENDINGS, presented in honor of World AIDS Day (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

CUAM presents the new project by Visual AIDS: ALTERNATE ENDINGS, a video program for the 25th anniversary of Day With(out) Art. The videos commissioned by Visual AIDS feature works about the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic. The videos highlight the diverse voices of seven artists that use video to bring together charged moments and memories from their personal perspective amidst the public history of HIV/AIDS.

 Artists featured: Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Hi Tiger, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, Julie Tolentino.

Day Without Art began on December 1st, 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 U.S. art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centers, AIDS Service Organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

Using a mix of found footage, live performance, still photos, and robotic cameras the ALTERNATE ENDINGS videos weave together connections between personal stories and public memories. They share tales of love and breakups, sing songs of defiance, celebrate action, and remember those whom we have lost. Through these diverse stories we are invited to reflect upon our complex past as we envision divergent narratives and possibilities for the future, because AIDS IS NOT OVER.

Visual AIDS initiates public actions and programs, publishes an annual poster and copyright-free broadsides, and acts as press coordinator and clearing house for projects for Day Without Art / World AIDS Day.

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.

CS Colloquium: Leysia Palen (CU-Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Frontiers in Crisis Informatics

ABSTRACT: Crisis informatics addresses socio-technical concerns in large-scale emergency response. Additionally it expands consideration to include not only official responders (who tend to be the focus in policy and technology-focused matters), but also members of the public. It therefore views emergency response as a much broader socio-technical system where information is disseminated within and between official and public channels and entities. Crisis informatics wrestles with methodological concerns as it strives to develop new theory and support informed development of ICT and policy. Palen will describe the range of work her team has engaged in at CU-Boulder since 2006, and highlight the different branches of crisis informatics research through discussion of the multidisciplinary research they have conducted here.

BIO: Leysia Palen is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, USA. She is a faculty fellow with the ATLAS Institute and the Institute of Cognitive Science. She is also a Full Adjunct Professor at the University of Agder in Norway. Leysia Palen is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego with a BS in Cognitive Science, and of the University of California, Irvine with an MS and PhD in Information and Computer Science. Prof. Palen is a leader in the area of crisis informatics, an area she forged with her graduate students and colleagues at CU-Boulder. She brings her training in human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative work and social computing to bear on understanding and advancing socio-technical issues of societal import. She conducts empirical research in the interpretivist tradition. However, in the advancing arena of large-scale on-line interaction (the "big data" of crisis response), she adapts quantitative techniques that then allow the application of qualitative methods and the "ethnographic eye" to closely observe and describe social structures in such technology-mediated situations. Prof. Palen is the author of over 70 articles and a co-edited book in the areas of human computer interaction, computer supported cooperative work, mobility, and crisis informatics. She was awarded an NSF CAREER in 2006. She is an Associate Editor for the Human Computer Interaction Journal (Taylor and Francis) and for the Computer-Supported Cooperative Work Journal (Springer).

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

Event Image A Broadway Christmas Carol
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Created by Kathy Feininger
Directed by Nathan Stith

If Charles Dickens had huddled with Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and Matt Stone and Trey Parker to write a holiday show, they just might have come up with A Broadway Christmas Carol. Simultaneously irreverent and respectful, the play offers a fresh, hilarious and charmingly recognizable retelling of Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, complete with new lyrics to famous Broadway show tunes.

Event Image Art + Maps Exhibit


Works by four local and regional artists are exhibited with items from the Map Library collection. Corresponding maps range from antique maps to aerial photographs; celestial charts to contemporary expressions of map design.

• Enhanced remote-sensing images by Karl Mueller, CU-Boulder Geological Sciences Department
• Quilts by Barbara Olson, Boulder fiber artist
• Paintings by Alan Paine Radebaugh, New Mexico painter
• Pen and watercolor works on paper by Michael Theodore, CU-Boulder College of Music, Theory and Composition Department

Natural forms and earth processes inform the work of these four artists. The juxtaposition of art and maps highlights their formal similarities, yet also reveals elements and functions showing where the purposes of the two formats diverge. A selection of maps emphasizes artistry in cartographic production from various time periods and cultures.
Several attributes particular to maps, such as decorative borders, cartouches, and directional signs are displayed.

Curated by Naomi Heiser, our lead cataloger and resident historical map expert.
Event Image Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and the Origins of Post-Holocaust American Judaism


A visual depiction of the life and work of Reb Zalman, widely considered one of the most significant Jewish spiritual leaders of the 20th and 21st centuries, who also taught mysticism and psychology of religion at several universities, including Naropa, and founded the influential Spiritual Eldering movement.

The images and artifacts come from the University of Colorado Boulder Zalman M. Schachter-Shalomi Collection, which anchors the CU-Boulder Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive. The CU-Boulder Program in Jewish Studies is an active collaborator on the development of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Archive.

A Table (Somewhat): Conversations Between Objects (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The title of Richard Artschwager’s Table (Somewhat) proposes a parenthetical quandary. If its existence as a table is called into question one might reasonably wonder "What, if not a table?” 

A Table (Somewhat) is the first in a series of exhibitions subtitled Conversations Between Objects, which provoke a dialog between artworks that span different times and places. CUAM’s Dillon Collection of Scholar’s Rocks stems from an ancient Chinese tradition in which certain characteristics are treasured for containing the infinite within gnarled and veined forms. Contemplating these palm-sized rocks from different perspectives slows down looking. Shifts in scale guide human perception from the finite realities of physical matter to macrocosmic associations. Animals, cascading rivers, and otherworldly mountain formations reveal themselves to the mind's delight. Artschwager's miniaturized formica table is deceptively straightforward, but also disorients thought. A cube of faux tigerwood legs framing blocks of grass green and blue sky begs the question "What, if not a Table?"

This is the inaugural exhibition curated by Director and Chief Curator Sandra Q. Firmin. 

Event Image ART/TEKNE: Part 3 "Metaphorming Nature: Connecting Human/Nature’s Creative Potential" (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Todd Siler’s large-scale installation Metaphorming Nature features a selection of artworks that interpret what nature makes and what we make of nature. The installation replicates the limbic system—the heart of the human brain—where intuitions, feelings and emotions are integrated and interpreted. Wrapping around curved walls for over 100 feet, Thought Assemblies explores the world of real and imaginary structures generated by the billions of neurons that make up the brain’s creative engine of innovation. The immersive environment presents a mosaic of interrelated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photomontages produced over the last four decades. Other artworks visualize nano- and macro-scale processes and physical matter, in which the invisible sparks between atoms seem to transform into a swirling cosmos of possibilities. Large swathes of fiery reds morph into subdued blues, tapping into the range of human emotions triggered by aesthetic experiences. Siler highlights the human brain’s handiwork in everything it creates, connecting it all back to nature’s innovations. The empirical work of pioneer nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his colleagues, who apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to help solve today’s most urgent environmental challenges, inspire many of Siler’s recent artworks.

In 2011 Geoffrey Ozin and Todd Siler co-founded ArtNano Innovations, (www.ArtNanoInnovations.com) meeting by chance at the World Cultural Council’s Awards Ceremony where Dr. Ozin received the Albert Einstein World Award for Science and Siler received the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts. Siler has been represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts since 1981 and his artworks are in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Denver Art Museum, among others.

Geoffrey Ozin studied at King’s College London and Oriel College Oxford University. He is the Tier 1 Government of Canada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and Nanochemistry, and Distinguished University Professor at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Dr. Ozin was nominated for the 2014 Kavli Nanoscience Prize in recognition of the originality and significance of his visionary work in the field of Nanochemistry.
