Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: Men’s roles and women’s goals: How gender stereotypes constrain our self-concepts

Abstract: In what ways are women’s life choices constrained by gender stereotypes? Existing theory and research on the under-representation of women in traditionally male roles (e.g., STEM, the paid workforce) has primarily focused on how societal stereotypes about women constrain women’s success in male-dominated domains. I will present a novel program of research examining instead how heterosexual women’s career aspirations are constrained by their stereotypic expectations of men’s roles and an anticipated unequal division of domestic labor. First, I will discuss a series of studies showing that both college-aged women and grade school-aged girls envision their future selves occupying less stereotypically-female roles when they see men exhibiting greater willingness to adopt domestic responsibilities. Next, I will present evidence that complementary stereotypes also color women’s romantic preferences. That is, controlling for egalitarian beliefs and personal priorities, women who anticipate becoming the breadwinners of their future families are more likely to desire mates with caregiving skills. Together, these studies of complementary stereotypes lay the groundwork for my broader program of research exploring the psychological barriers preventing men from entering traditionally-female domains. My findings suggest that highlighting and changing the stereotypes about men’s roles may be beneficial to women and promote overall gender equality.

Robert Miles was a senior majoring in both BM in bassoon performance and BS in Environmental Engineering. He was loved by everyone, and was always wiling to help a friend in need. Rob was passionate about music. He loved playing his bassoon and was very much invested in the College of Music. His most recent musical accomplishment was his performance of the highly virtuosic woodwind quintet by Samuel Barber with his undergraduate quintet at a formal concert in Grusin just a few days before the accident. After the concert, Rob, along with fellow quintet members were glowing and were euphoric about their performance. Rob also was a phenomenal contrabassoon player and was able to play with elegance and flair. 
 
In addition to chamber music, Rob was a member of the Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Quintet and basketball band. Rob was preparing for hist final senior recital in spring. Some works from his recital will be performed at the memorial.

Extensive work suggests that the normal aging process leads to significant structural and functional declines in the frontostriatal brain networks implicated in decision-making.  This can often lead to poorer performance for older adults in decision-making tasks compared to younger adults.  In this talk I present two studies that use a combination of computational modeling and fMRI to identify age differences in neural activity associated with specific cognitive processes during decision-making.  Study 1 shows that neural responses in stratal and medial prefrontal regions to reward prediction errors decline with age, while responses to reward outcomes are maintained.  Study 2 uses a more demanding state-based decision-making task where individuals must consider how actions affect changes in their future state.  In this study we find evidence of compensatory activation of lateral prefrontal regions in older adults that is related to a model based measure of how current actions affect changes in one's future state.  This suggests that older adults may recruit additional brain structures during cognitively demanding decision-making tasks to achieve the same level of performance as younger adults.  I end the talk by discussing future directions in decision neuroscience across the lifespan, and current work aimed at exploring how genetic differences can affect learning and decision-making.

CS Colloquium: Stefan Brunthaler (UC Irvine)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Large-Scale Automated Software Diversity: Programming Language Technology to Enhance System Security

ABSTRACT: Security is among the most pressing problems in computing today, with high-profile breaches receiving notable media coverage and increasingly also impacting daily life. For example, the Sony breach made headlines and forced Sony to cancel screenings of their movie "The Interview" in the United States. After talking
 about the current state of cyber-security, including major incidents and estimated economic damages, Brunthaler will analyze the current software ecosystem and identify a primary culprit: the software monoculture. I will then illustrate return-oriented programming (ROP) and show how software diversity effectively mitigates this attack vector. In addition, he will cover important next steps: adaptive diversification to reduce performance impact and active defenses as a new capability. 

Since there are no rules that attackers have to obey, Brunthaler will then address another attack vector that is particularly worrisome in cloud environments: side-channels. Attackers use side channels to infer valuable information, such as encryption keys or passwords. He will present dynamic diversity, a new technique recently 
discovered by the presenter, to prevent side-channel attacks. Since software diversity protects against multiple attack vectors, restricting attacker's mobility and thus significantly raising the bar for attackers.

BIO: Stefan Brunthaler received his PhD in 2011 from the Vienna University of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Knoop, and has been working as Postdoctoral Scholar with Prof. Dr. Michael Franz at the Secure Systems and Languages Laboratory at the University of California, Irvine, since April 2011. At the SSL Lab, his primary research interests are in the areas of language-based security (focusing on software diversity 
and information-flow tracking) and the efficient implementation of dynamically-typed programming languages (focusing on Python and JavaScript). His contributions include new software defenses, such as active defenses and dynamic diversity, as well as many important optimizations, such as performance-neutral defenses and 
making the Python interpreter up to 5.5x faster.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Abrupt Climate Change: The View from the Past, Present and Future

Climate is changing as humans put more and more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. With CO2 levels around 400ppm today, we are committed to even more climate change, both in the near term, and well beyond our children’s future. A key question is how that change will occur. Abrupt climate changes are those that exceed our expectations, preparedness, and ability to adapt. Such changes challenge us economically, physically, and socially. This talk will discuss abrupt change, as seen in the past in ice cores, as seen today, and what may be coming in the future.

Talk title: Striatal Circuits and Behavioral Choreography in Health and Disease

Abstract: The basal ganglia are critically involved in a variety of behavioral functions, ranging from motor control to cognitive flexibility and reward processing. These behaviors are regulated by different subtypes of neurons in the striatum, which form discrete pathways that route the flow of information through the basal ganglia. My research combines genetically modified mice with molecular genetic and optogenetic approaches to measure and manipulate the function of specific striatal cell types and their synaptic connections. I will describe how these striatal circuits organize actions into sequences and routines, under normal conditions as well as in mice carrying genetic mutations associated with autism spectrum disorders. This research highlights fundamental principles governing basal ganglia circuit function, providing a framework for further investigation of the synaptic and molecular architecture of striatal circuits, and their dysfunction in disease states like autism and addiction.

CS Colloquium: Fereydoun Hormozdiari (U. of Washington)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Discovery of Structural Variation and Gene Networks in Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Joint Colloquium with the Institute for Behavioral Genetics

ABSTRACT: The comparison of human genomes shows that along with single nucleotide variants and small indels, larger structural variants (SVs) are common. It is known that rare SVs can be a significant causal factor for complex disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disability (ID), and cancer. Hormozdiari will first discuss methods to discover structural variation using high-throughput sequencing technologies and application of these methods to understand the role of rare SVs in disease. He will present two methods he has developed to discover SVs using whole genome sequencing data from single individuals (VariationHunter) and simultaneously within multiple samples/families (CommonLaw). They have successfully applied their methods to diverse sets of data including the Great Ape Genome Project to assess evolution, the 1000 Genomes Project to understand population variation, and a set of autism trios to characterize disease-relevant mutations. In order to assess the importance of rare SVs in autism, they performed deep genome sequencing (>50-fold sequence coverage) on 19 autism trios and used CommonLAW for SV discovery. Interestingly, they found rare and private SVs affecting autism-relevant genes such as SCN2A, CACNA2D4, and ARID1B. 

Finally, despite extensive genetic heterogeneity underlying disorders such as ASD and ID, there is compelling evidence that risk genes are restricted to a small number of sets of interacting genes, or network modules. Hormozdiari will present a novel computational method (MAGI) that interprets de novo mutations in probands using protein-protein interaction networks and brain-development RNAseq expression profiles to discover network modules relevant to neurodevelopmental disorders. Applying the method to recent de novo mutations from 1116 ASD and ID patients, they discovered two distinct and significant modules (p<0.005) that differ in their properties and associated phenotypes. The first module overlaps with the Wnt and Notch signaling pathways, as well as with the SWI/SNF and NCOR complexes, while the second module is enriched for long-term potentiation and calcium signaling.

BIO: Fereydoun Hormozdiari is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington. He received his B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Simon Fraser University (SFU). Notable awards include the Canadian Governor General’s gold medal as SFU’s most outstanding graduate student and an Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship. His research focuses on developing algorithms and methods to solve disease-relevant biological problems. Specific research to date has focused on computational genomics applied to the discovery of structural variations, and systems biology applied to the discovery of disease network modules for neurodevelopmental disorders. He has been an active member of large genomic consortiums, including the 1000 Genomes and the Genome of Netherlands (GoNL) Projects.

Title:
Scaling Models of Human Semantic Abstraction

Abstract: Human semantic memory develops over a lifetime of linguistic and perceptual experience. Laboratory experiments can probe the end product of the process of semantic abstraction, or can study the process at a small scale using well-controlled stimuli. But a full understanding of the mechanisms that drive semantic abstraction requires the study of models that learn over realistic data at a scale that humans do. Indeed, the models that perform best at small scales do not readily scale up to human-scale amounts of data, and relatively “dumb but scalable” models end up generating impressively complex representations when trained on sufficient data. I will present some recent work from my lab exploring random vector accumulation models based on theories of associative memory. These models learn incrementally from linguistic corpora, making surprising predictions about semantic development, and can also integrate large-scale perceptual data from our crowdsourcing project, the NSF Semantic Pictionary Project. Because humans are both the producers and consumers of such a large amount of the data we wish mine for knowledge, models of human semantic abstraction can offer unique insights not captured by purely data-driven machine learning techniques. I will end with a few applied examples from my lab using human semantic models in clinical informatics, automated synthesis of the neuroimaging literature, optimizing passwords, and intelligent tutoring systems.

Title:
 Interactive visualization of facts extracted from natural language text

Abstract:  In natural language processing, the summarization of information in a large amount of text has typically been viewed as a type of natural language generation problem, e.g. "produce a 250 word summary of some documents based on some input query". An alternative view, which will be the focus of this talk, is to use natural language parsing to extract facts from a collection of documents and then use information visualization to provide an interactive summarization of these facts.

The first step is to extract detailed facts about events from natural language text using a predicate-centered view of events (who did what to whom, when and how). We exploit semantic roles in order to create a predicate-centric ontology for entities which is used to create a knowledge base of facts about entities and their relationship with other entities.

The next step is to use information visualization to provide a summarization of the facts in this knowledge base. The user can interact with the visualization to find summaries that have different granularities.  This enables the discovery of extremely uncommon facts easily, unlike large scale "macro-reading" approaches to information extraction.

We have used this methodology to build an interactive visualization of events in human history by machine reading Wikipedia articles (available on the web at http://lensingwikipedia.cs.sfu.ca).

Event Image Monday Workshops: Establishing Authority in the Classroom
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Establishing Authority in the Classroom

Tamara Milbourn, Lead 2014–15, Education

What does “authority” look like in university classrooms? Where does it come from? Many instructors would like to have efficient and respectful classrooms—classrooms in which ideas are deeply examined, homework gets done (on time), test scores are high, and everyone is cordial to one another. This workshop will discuss issues related to classroom authority—such as trust—and help you reflect on your classroom presence as a TA.

Talk title: From neuron to need: The neural circuitry and motivational properties of survival behaviors.

Abstract: Animals survive by responding to constantly changing conditions and needs. Over time, evolution has selected for neural circuits that ensure a robust behavioral response to essential needs. What features of the central nervous system enable such flexible yet goal directed behavior? Using the fundamental need of hunger as an entry point, I have characterized the circuits formed by neurons sensing nutrient need and uncovered how activity of these neurons motivates an animal to find and consume food. I found that AGRP neurons, a small starvation-sensitive neuron population, transmit nutrient need to distinct regions of the brain using a segregated, parallel, and redundant output configuration. To understand how the activation of AGRP neurons motivates the complex and flexible behavioral repertoire necessary for seeking and obtaining food, I examined how activity of these neurons reinforces feeding behavior. I found that these homeostatic neurons signal nutrient deficit by evoking an unpleasant motivational state that promotes food-seeking. This model suggests AGRP neuron activity is conceptually similar to withdrawal and motivates the animal to exit this state by finding and consuming food.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: Facial Cues in Social Categorization: Cognitive and Neural Mechanisms
Abstract: Given the complex social nature of human society, how do perceivers make sense of all available information when forming impressions of others? In my talk I'll discuss two related lines of research addressing this question. The first will focus on trait attributions (e.g., physical strength) arising from a specific facial cues, and how these features can be co-opted to form impressions that are specific to the context in which they are perceived (e.g., racial prejudice). The second examines the mechanisms involved in integrating multiple sources of information about others, specifically exploring how incongruent information (e.g., information at odds with one's stereotypes) is resolved to facilitate perceiving others accurately.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art Opening Reception
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

On view: February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.

The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.

Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image Tartuffe
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

Talk title: The social self: Understanding the subtle social determinants of behavior

Abstract: In our culture, a dominant model for the self is that of a single individual separated from others through their unique set of traits, preferences, and thoughts. This conceptualization, however, fails to recognize that the self is largely social in nature, with a great deal of the self-concept defined by one's social identity and the groups to which one belongs.  In this talk, I will argue that much of behavior is driven by these social identity concerns and that this influence is often obscured from conscious awareness.  I will then present data from three separate lines of research which each provide evidence for the subtle social determinants of behavior. Together, this work demonstrates that social identity processes exert a ubiquitous influence, directly modifying our attitudes, behaviors, emotions, and goals so that they become congruent with those of other ingroup members.  In addition, the findings  document the power of social processes to influence behavior across a diverse set of domains, ranging from our emotional responses to music to the behavioral influence of advertising exposure.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

CU Boulder -- Interdepartmental Neuroscience Seminar Series
Muenzinger Psychology
Room E214, 4pm

Dr. Vijay Mittal, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder, Director of the Adolescent Development and Preventive Treatment Research Program (ADAPT)

Title: Translational Clinical Science in the Psychosis Prodrome: From Biomarker Development to Early Intervention

Abstract: A body of evidence suggest that up to one third of ultra high risk youth (adolescents who exhibit recent subtle positive symptoms as well as declines in social, emotional, motor and cognitive functioning) will go on to develop a psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia within a two year period. While the ultra high risk or prodromal period represents a promising opportunity to improve etiological understanding and intervene prior to onset (when third variable confounds can cloud research and treatment), to date, we are unclear about what differentiates those who do go on to develop a psychotic disorder, from the phenotypically similar adolescents who do not. Furthermore, preliminary evidence suggests that while early interventions may be effective in reducing transition rates, the available treatments are associated with significant costs and side effects, and factors unique to this population significantly limit efficacy. Taken together, this suggests a critical need for effective biomarkers and targeted interventions. As psychosis onset typically occurs at the end of the adolescent period, promising empirically driven conceptualizations point to the significant role that adolescent neurodevelopment may play. To this end, understanding aberrant processes during adolescent neuroreorganization may help to significantly improve etiological understanding, bolster early identification, and inform interventions. In this presentation, I discuss characteristics and research priorities in the psychosis prodrome and then review my ongoing biomarker and treatment development studies. Specifically, I focus on the relationship between adolescent motor and brain development, presenting longitudinal behavioral and imaging research that suggests that abnormalities in movement reflect a pattern of aberrant neurodevelopment that can eventually lead to the onset of psychosis. In addition, I discuss basic psychopathology research from my laboratory that was used to inform the development of an ongoing exercise-based targeted cognitive rendition trial. Finally, I will discuss plans for future projects and emphasize the significant utility of cross-disciplinary collaboration in this area.

Visiting Artist Lecture: Extrapolation Factory
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The Extrapolation Factory is an imagination-based studio for design-led futures studies founded by Elliott P. Montgomery and Chris Woebken. The studio focuses on developing future scenarios embodied as artifacts in familiar, present-day contexts. The Extrapolation Factory proposes a method for collaboratively envisioning possible futures with diverse participants, experts and non-experts, and doing so in a variety of accessible ways. With this work, the studio is exploring the value of rapidly imagined, prototyped, deployed and evaluated visions of possible futures on an extended time scale. The Extrapolation Factory has worked with partners and organizations such as Autodesk Research, UNICEF, and TED Active.

We would like to thank our students for making the Visiting Artist Program possible with funding from art and art history student activities fees.

Math and science are often thought of as challenging subjects that can prevent children from being successful in school. However, many aspects of math and science resonate well with students’ hearts and minds. New teaching and learning practices have changed the look of math and science and these novel formats are often unfamiliar to parents, students, and educators. CU Professors Edd Taylor & Valerie Otero will reveal aspects of math and science learning environments that are inviting and empowering and demonstrate how math and science appeal to curiosity and problem-solving instincts.Taylor and Otero will also discuss the rationale for current changes in math and science classrooms (e.g. solving problems in non-traditional ways), as well as the changing roles for parents in this somewhat unfamiliar space.

Creticum Vinum Excellens: The Role of Cretan Wine in the Roman Economy
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The island of Crete has never received sufficient attention in discussions of the Roman economy, even as Crete’s economy flourished throughout history as a waypoint for shipments of goods throughout the Mediterranean and also as an exporter in its own right. New archaeological evidence now compels us to reconsider the role of Crete as jugs in which Cretan wine was packaged in have been found in almost every province of the Roman world. Dr. Gallimore will discuss Roman trade in Cretan wine from the 1st-6th c. CE, including investigating the mass appeal of this product to the ancient Romans.

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Nigel North

“I remember going to a remarkable recital, one which I wish I had the ability to give: it was one of Nigel North’s Bach recitals, and I was bowled over by how masterful and how musical it was. A real musical experience.”
-Julian Bream

“Perhaps he is the greatest performer of the instrument of all time. Transcriptions from cello music featured in the first half reminded us of North’s wonderful fluidity and subtlety of expression, which enables him to knit together lines of melody in such a way as to imply rich harmony . . . the basic sincerity of his approach comes over well in live recitals . . . and the famous “Ciaconna” made a very moving concluding item to one this year’s better Birmingham concerts.”
-Birmingham Post (England)

SoloDuo

“SoloDuo’s Carnegie Hall concert was one of the more memorable of the Weill season. It is hard to say what left more of an impression: their remarkable blend, their sublime artistry or their impeccable technique. Do not miss a chance to hear them.”
-The New York Concert Review

“SoloDuo guitarists break barriers. It was a magical evening.”

Event Image Tartuffe
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

French playwright Molière’s comic masterpiece skewers religious hypocrisy, mindless piety and sexual deceit was so daring at the time of its writing that audience members could be excommunicated for seeing it. Tartuffe tells how a “man of the cloth” worms his way into the gullible heart of Orgon, a rich family man, and tries to take him for all he has. It takes a desperate trap by Orgon’s wife Elmire to expose the imposter.

A verbal and visual treat, Tartuffe delivers its warning against freeloaders in the most delightful way.”

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title: Optical interrogation of neural circuits underlying cognitive behaviors in mice

Abstract: 
Recent developments in mouse physiology and optogenetics have enabled the study of cortical
microcircuits underlying simple neural computations. Combining these approaches with behavioral
paradigms originally developed for primates promises to enable circuit-level investigation of cognitive
processes in mice. In this talk, I will describe ongoing efforts to use 2-photon calcium imaging and
optogenetic perturbation during performance of a memory-guided visual discrimination task to better
understand the cortical basis of information processing and storage in distributed neocortical regions.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Talk title:  Functional variation in neuromodulatory genes as a source of behavioral diversity

Abstract: Evolutionarily ancient neuromodulatory systems play an important role in mood and behavior. Variation in these systems is thought to contribute to inter- and intra-species behavioral diversity and differences in susceptibility to mental illness in humans. In order to elucidate the contribution of genetic variation in neuromodulatory genes to behavioral diversity, I have focused on two candidate genes: the vasopressin V1a receptor, which plays a major role in social behavior, and the serotonin 1a receptor, which modulates anxiety and stress-related behaviors.

Variation in repetitive elements in the promoter of the V1a receptor gene have been associated with both individual and species level differences in receptor expression and social behavior in voles. I demonstrated that these variants directly contribute to differences in gene expression and behavior by creating transgenic mice carrying different versions of this repetitive element. The highly mutable nature of repetitive DNA elements may thus represent an evolutionary mechanism for generating sociobehavioral diversity.

Within the serotonin 1a receptor system, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the gene promoter has been linked to differences both in depression risk and anti-depressant responsiveness in humans. Using a combination of epidemiological and post-mortem approaches in humans, I found that this SNP has region-specific and developmental impacts on gene expression and is associated with increased risk for psychiatric hospitalization. To further pursue the functional effects of this SNP across the life course, I have created a humanized mouse model of this SNP, which will be a major focus of future research.

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

This class will take us through the process of writing a play. Starting with writing exercises to help us learn about how a play works, we will compose, collaboratively workshop, revise and then perform a staged reading of our own 10-minute plays. Beyond our writing, we will also discuss playwriting in the American theatre. What do playwrights do? How do new plays get produced? The class will also be given the opportunity to submit their plays to national young playwrights contests.

 Talk title: The Emperor’s New Drugs: Antidepressants and the Placebo Effect

Abstract: Antidepressants are supposed to work by fixing a chemical imbalance, specifically, a lack of serotonin in the brain.  But analyses of the published and the unpublished data that were hidden by the drug companies reveals that most (if not all) of the benefits are due to the placebo effect. Some antidepressants increase serotonin levels, some decrease serotonin, and some have no effect at all on serotonin.  Nevertheless, they all show the same therapeutic benefit.  Instead of curing depression, popular antidepressants may induce a biological vulnerability making people more likely to become depressed in the future.  Other treatments (e.g., psychotherapy and physical exercise) produce the same short term benefits as antidepressants, show better long term effectiveness, and do so without the side effects and health risks of the drugs.

Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image Monday Workshops: Creating Model Content for Student Source Analysis
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Creating Model Content for Student Source Analysis
Avedan Raggio, Instructor, German and Slavic Languages

We will discuss guiding students in creating and using model content for textual or source analysis. For example, in a medieval literature class students collaboratively write an Icelandic-style tale with several versions and then apply the textual/historical analysis skills they have learned in the class to their created content to model what scholars do with genuine manuscripts. The workshop will include discussion on how to guide the students in creating material in non-literature classes for analysis.

Understanding Bodiam Castle
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Bodiam Castle, built in the 1380s in southeastern England, is perhaps the most extensively discussed castle in medieval Europe. It is certainly the most controversial – was it built as defense against the French or was it a fairytale castle set in a symbolic landscape?  Dr. Johnson will reveal what three recent seasons of archaeological fieldwork at Bodiam have discovered about this fascinating building and how it interacted with its landscape. Dr. Johnson will present a new view of the castle stressing its active role in regional politics and economics, and understanding how a Medieval castle like Bodiam worked from the simplest action of washing one’s hands in the chapel to the castle’s place in world history.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art is supported by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Anonymous at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Often (if not all) times in STEM classrooms, the onus on students is to produce the “correct answer.” However, learning is not a uniform and perfect process; it requires creativity on both sides of the “lectern” to convey difficult concepts and cement them in place. Join Trevor for some (literally) hands-on experience incorporating creativity in your teaching.
