Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

All Day

The University Libraries are pleased to present an eclectic mix of its maps exploring the idea of myth.  Maps range from depictions of sea creatures, fantastical animals and "exotic" peoples in far-away lands, to propaganda maps with deliberate distortions and explorer's maps with honest mistakes.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

Event Image Sangeeta Reddy: Fractured Landscapes of the West
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Fractured Landscapes of the West features a series of landscape paintings by Denver-based, Indian-born artist Sangeeta Reddy. The large and small-scale paintings illuminate the striking and complex landscapes of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah through a vast range of colors that fade from dark to light. Reddy’s representations of the different natural formations found in the mountains, valleys, canyons, and deserts across the Colorado Plateau become almost abstract as she renders rock forms, riverbeds, and geological strata with a bold color palette and stylized shapes.

This exhibit is at the Macky Gallery from March 3 to May 29, 2016. More information here.

BMoCA at Macky is an off-site exhibition series presented by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with Macky Auditorium.

Event Image Exhibition: Janelle Iglesias
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Event Image Spring 2016 Commencement - Department of History
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Commencement

Every Spring the Department of History holds its annual commencement ceremony in the Mary Rippon Theater, an outdoor venue which is surrounded by the U-shaped Hellems Arts & Sciences Building.  

Please note: The Department of History does not hold a departmental commencement ceremony in August or December. December graduates may participate in the following Spring commencement ceremony, and August graduates may participate in the previous Spring ceremony if they would like to do so.

The Department of History Spring 2016 Commencement will be held:
Friday, May 6th, 2016
Time: 4:00 pm
Mary Rippon Outdoor Amphitheatre
(located between the wings of the Hellems building)

Below you will find .pdf versions of the invitation, instructions, and a campus map with Hellems marked in blue. (Note: you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files.) If you have questions after reading the attachments, please contact the department at (303) 492-6683 or history@colorado.edu.

There is no limit on the number of guests you may bring, and you do not need tickets, however, graduating students are asked to contact the department at least two days in advance of the ceremony at the above email or phone number with their name and the number of people expected (including themselves) so we know how many attendees to expect. The amphtheatre is wheelchair-accessible from the southwest entrance near the CU Museum and Denison buildings, and from inside Hellems' west wing via a ramp at the rear on the west side. There may be ADA acessible parking available in the CU Museum parking lot (#208), contact Parking Services for more information regarding accessible parking.

All campus parking lots except for the Euclid Autopark & the metered spaces along University Avenue will be free that day. There may also be some free parking on the streets surrounding the University, but be aware there is a strict 2-hour maximum limit on most neighborhood on-street parking and the area is patrolled regularly.

History Commencement Instructions (.pdf file, opens in Adobe Acrobat Reader)

Campus Map showing location of the Hellems Building and Mary Rippon Amphitheatre (in blue) (.pdf file, opens in Acrobat Reader)

For those of you trying to plan dinner, the departmental ceremony lasts approximately one hour and it will be followed by an optional reception.

Because our venue is outdoors, we strongly suggest attendees bring rain gear. While we cannot ban the use of umbrellas we politely request that attendees refrain from using them during the ceremony if deploying them would interfere with other attendees' ability to view the ceremony. In the event of dangerous weather (lightning) the ceremony may be postponed slightly or canceled entirely, however if it's just raining the event will proceed. There is no alternate location due to the fact that there are no spaces on campus large enough for our event not being used by other departments for their own events. Graduating students should monitor their CU email the day of the ceremony for any announcements regarding weather decisions.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

All Day

The University Libraries are pleased to present an eclectic mix of its maps exploring the idea of myth.  Maps range from depictions of sea creatures, fantastical animals and "exotic" peoples in far-away lands, to propaganda maps with deliberate distortions and explorer's maps with honest mistakes.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Event Image Sangeeta Reddy: Fractured Landscapes of the West
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Fractured Landscapes of the West features a series of landscape paintings by Denver-based, Indian-born artist Sangeeta Reddy. The large and small-scale paintings illuminate the striking and complex landscapes of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah through a vast range of colors that fade from dark to light. Reddy’s representations of the different natural formations found in the mountains, valleys, canyons, and deserts across the Colorado Plateau become almost abstract as she renders rock forms, riverbeds, and geological strata with a bold color palette and stylized shapes.

This exhibit is at the Macky Gallery from March 3 to May 29, 2016. More information here.

Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Visit the Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences between May 2nd and July 1st to see how maps can challenge our habitual perceptions of the world.

Event Image Sangeeta Reddy: Fractured Landscapes of the West
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Fractured Landscapes of the West features a series of landscape paintings by Denver-based, Indian-born artist Sangeeta Reddy. The large and small-scale paintings illuminate the striking and complex landscapes of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah through a vast range of colors that fade from dark to light. Reddy’s representations of the different natural formations found in the mountains, valleys, canyons, and deserts across the Colorado Plateau become almost abstract as she renders rock forms, riverbeds, and geological strata with a bold color palette and stylized shapes.

This exhibit is at the Macky Gallery from March 3 to May 29, 2016. More information here.

BMoCA at Macky is an off-site exhibition series presented by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with Macky Auditorium.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Janelle Iglesias: Even a Simple Call Can Turn Into a Complex Racket
February 12–July 9, 2016

Janelle Iglesias is the CU Art Museum’s inaugural artist-in-residence—a program in which artists are invited to mine CU-Boulder’s creative and intellectual resources and collaborate with faculty and students to produce new artwork. Fascinated by the human impulse to collect and throw things away, Janelle is always on the lookout for natural and cultural artifacts that present an archeology of place. She amasses materials like driftwood, Styrofoam and glass that have been processed by time and nature and up-cycles them into intricate environments. Janelle will incorporate actual and copied objects from CU-Boulders’ various collections, including the Museum of Natural History, the Evolutionary and Ecology Greenhouse and trees on campus, into an ever-evolving sculptural installation. Her mechanisms of display employ translation, mimicry, and mirroring to heighten the interconnectedness of things and people. The museum will become a flexible space: a site for viewing and performance, a think tank and a playground, where audiences can interact with the artist and participating students as they transform the gallery over time.

Curated by Sandra Q. Firmin, director, CU Art Museum.

This exhibition is generously supported by a Roser Visiting Artist Endowment, an Arts Mini Grant funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Exhibition: Animals In Antiquity (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Animals in Antiquity
A collaborative exhibition between the CU Art Museum and the CU Museum of Natural History 
On view September 18, 2015 - September 2016 

The desire to assign symbolic meanings to animals that share our world links human cultures across time. Whether rendered figuratively or abstractly, depictions of animals remind us not only of themselves but also of the qualities and traits we assign to them. They can illustrate human traits—the coyote as trickster, the cat aloof—and teach children behaviors and ideals from fables. Humans have worshipped animals, hunted and consumed them for food, and altered the natural environments of animals, all in the name of humanity.

This exhibition is a celebration of animals in art and animals as artifacts. The objects are from across the Earth and span the last 4,000 years of human history. We invite you to ponder what these objects represented and how the makers used them in their daily lives.    

Curated by Erin Baxter, doctoral candidate in anthropology

This exhibition is generously supported by the Department of Classics, CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image Sangeeta Reddy: Fractured Landscapes of the West
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Fractured Landscapes of the West features a series of landscape paintings by Denver-based, Indian-born artist Sangeeta Reddy. The large and small-scale paintings illuminate the striking and complex landscapes of Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah through a vast range of colors that fade from dark to light. Reddy’s representations of the different natural formations found in the mountains, valleys, canyons, and deserts across the Colorado Plateau become almost abstract as she renders rock forms, riverbeds, and geological strata with a bold color palette and stylized shapes.

This exhibit is at the Macky Gallery from March 3 to May 29, 2016. More information here.

BMoCA at Macky is an off-site exhibition series presented by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with Macky Auditorium.

Event Image Europe’s Problem with Islam… 500 years Ago: Morisco Identity & Aljamiado Literature in Early Modern
6:30 PM - 9:30 PM

In 1609 the Spanish crown began the expulsion of over 400,000 Moriscos — Spanish Christians descended from native Muslims who were forcibly converted to Christianity nearly a century earlier. These people, who knew no other home, were uprooted, deprived of their property, and sent into exile in far off and often hostile Islamic lands.

In the century they lived as Christians in Spain, the Moriscos endured prejudice and abuse, the prohibition of the use of Arabic, of the veil, their traditional clothes, dances and customs, popular suspicion, discriminatory tax laws, and ethnic hatred. Expected to live as Christians, they were given virtually no ministry or instruction. Yet, some embraced their new faith and served the Church, and king; others retrenched doggedly persisting in their faith, even as the Inquisition hunted them done. Still others developed a hybrid religion combining Islam, Christianity and the veneration of the Virgin Mary. All to no avail.

Long lost in historical obscurity, historians are now discovering the wealth of Morisco history and culture - notably the rich literature they produced in Aljamiado — Spanish written with Arabic characters. 

On Monday 16 May at 6:30pm at the Grand Assembly Hall of Chautauqua Historical Park, CU Boulder’s Mediterranean Studies Group presents three scholars: Sabahat Adil (Asian Languages and Civilizations, CU Boulder) Brian A. Catlos (Religious Studies, CU Boulder), and Núria Martínez-de-Castilla (Arabic and Islamic Studies, Complutense Madrid) in an event that surveys experience of these forgotten European Muslims, their literature and culture, and their post-exile fate. 

The event is free and open to the public, but seats must be reserved no later than May 9. To reserve: tickets@cumediterranean.info
