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. The gifted collection covers the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
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 Legacy of Light
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Karen Zacarías
Directed by Jennifer Hubbard, Roe Green Visiting Guest Artist

Two women scientists, living hundreds of years apart, explore the meaning of love, motherhood, family, art and science in this contemporary comedy. The play juxtaposes the story of Émilie du Châtelet, a mathematician, scientist, and lover of the great 18th-century philosopher Voltaire, who became unexpectedly pregnant at 42, and that of a 21st-century physicist desperately trying to conceive a child.

“This is a work with its heart in the right place, one in which the comic machinations emanate from a source of bona fide light.” —Washington Post

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18)
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy!

This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

The Gates of Death:

The American Liberation of Nazi Concentration Camps

A talk by Dr. Paul Shankman, Professor of Anthropology

Almost 70 years ago, American soldiers liberated Nazi concentration camps in Western Europe.  What they saw shocked and appalled them, as well as the world at large.  What was this experience like for American liberators? And what was it like for survivors in the camps?  This talk discusses some  of the surprising stories behind the liberation of the camps in the final months of World War II.

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.

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.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Seminar talk with Dr. Richard Olson, Professor, Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder

Tuesday, Nov 4th
MUEN E214
4-5pm

Talk title: Genetic and Environmental Influences on Reading and Related Skills

Behavior-genetic research with identical and fraternal twins suggests that on average, genes account for most of the population variance and deficits (dyslexia)in reading and related skills. I will review results from our Colorado Learning Disabilities Research Center and the International Longitudinal Twin Study that support this conclusion, and I will discuss its implications for public policy in education. Molecular genetic studies of the twins' DNA and potentially related differences in brain structure and activity are beginning to suggest biological pathways that may be associated with individual differences and deficits in reading.

Event Image Faculty Tuesday: Carter Pann, composer
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

In the last ten years Carter Pann’s music has become known for its blend of crafty, popular-sounding idioms, subtle and unabashed humor, and haunted melodic writing. His music has been performed around the world by such ensembles and soloists as the London Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony, Berlin-Stockholm-Finnish Radio Symphonies, Seattle Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, National Repertory Orchestra, National Symphony of Ireland, New York Youth Symphony, Richard Stoltzman, the Ying Quartet, pianists Barry Snyder and Winston Choi, and the Antares ensemble, among others. Honors in composition include the K. Serocki Competition for his First Piano Concerto (premiered by the Polish Radio Symphony in Lutoslawski Hall, Warsaw 1998), the Charles Ives Scholarship from the Academy of Arts and Letters, and five ASCAP composer awards. His Piano Concerto was nominated for a GRAMMY as “Best Classical Composition of the Year” 2001. Pann’s Clarinet Concerto Rags to Richard, commissioned for Richard Stoltzman, was recorded by the Seattle Symphony under Gerard Schwarz. Love Letters (string quartet no. 1) was commissioned by the Ying Quartet for their LIFE MUSIC commissioning project through a grant from the American Music Institute. His workSlalom (for orch.) was performed by the London Symphony under Daniel Harding in 2001 and has since been widely performed throughout the United States and Europe (and subsequently showcased on NPR’s Performance Today). Concerto Logic (Piano Concerto No. 2) was commissioned by a consortium of nearly two dozen wind symphonies around the country with the composer as soloist. His most recent work, Mercury Concerto for flute and orchestra, was written for and premiered by fellow faculty member Christina Jennings and the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra in Houston. Throughout the last six years Carter has contributed regularly to the explosion of new Wind Symphony works being written for the many ensembles around the country.

Hydrologic Sciences & Water Resources Seminar
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Horsetooth Reservoir Water-Quality Modeling Study

ABSTRACT: Horsetooth Reservoir is a terminal, off-stream storage reservoir for the Colorado-Big Thompson (C-BT) Project. The reservoir is located in Larimer County, west of the City of Fort Collins. Horsetooth Reservoir serves as a resource for public water supply, agricultural water supply, industrial water supply, and recreation. Water-quality concerns in the reservoir include metalimnetic and hypolimnetic low dissolved oxygen, as well as elevated levels of manganese and total organic carbon. Development of a water-quality model was commissioned to improve understanding of water-quality dynamics in the reservoir, and to provide a tool for use in simulation of any proposed future modifications to operations or inflow water quality.  A two-dimensional hydrodynamic and water-quality model was developed using CE-QUAL-W2 version 3.6.   This presentation will provide an overview of the steps taken in model development and testing.  Findings from that effort and potential future applications will also be discussed.

BIO: Christine Hawley of Hydros Consulting Inc. is an environmental engineer with 18 years of experience, specializing in management of large, multi-component projects that include field investigations, data analysis, and system conceptualization. She has a passion for understanding natural system behavior through data analysis. She has worked with international and local teams of experts on high-profile projects evaluating contaminant transport in groundwater, surface water, transition zone water, and sediment. Ms. Hawley is currently working on watershed investigations, water-quality modeling, expert witness analyses, and serving as a technical advisor.

Event Image Producing Academic Posters that Respect Your Work | Norlin Learner’s Lunch Workshop
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Would you wear sweatpants to a graduation ceremony? Why not? They're comfortable, easy, and cheap, right? And that's precisely the point: comfortable, easy, and cheap is a wholly inappropriate look for an occasion that honors hard work, commitment, and attention to detail. An academic poster is no different. Why, after devoting untold hours to excellence in research and writing, would you want to send your work out into the world dressed like the guy on the next StairMaster over? Your work deserves better. Creating beautiful, more credible academic posters is mostly a matter of common sense and can be done with familiar software. We’ll look at some very simple guidelines and design ideas that can help make your work visually smashing. Presenter: Dave Underwood

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 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.

CS Colloquium: Marek Petrik (IBM Research)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Using Robust Optimization for Solving Large Data-driven Problems

ABSTRACT: Robust optimization is a relatively new methodology for solving problems with uncertain parameters. Addressing parameter uncertainty in optimization problems is becoming increasingly important as they are often based on outputs of machine learning algorithms. In the first part of the talk, Petrik will describe the optimization of supply chain logistics during a large-scale disaster recovery. Their approach, based on robust optimization, computes close-to-optimal solutions while reducing the computation time by several orders of magnitude.  In the second part of the talk, he will describe a novel use of robustness to reducing model error in large sequential stochastic optimization problems. Their approach, based on robust Markov decision processes, works well in several applications and also significantly improves the theoretical guarantees over the state of the art.

BIO: Marek Petrik is a Research Staff Member at the Business Services and Mathematical Sciences Department at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center. He received his PhD in computer science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His research focuses on machine learning and optimization with a special interest in robust and risk-averse optimization and stochastic sequential optimization problems. He has worked on applications such as agricultural and environmental monitoring, supply chain optimization, revenue management, and online recommendations.

Event Image AES Distinguished Lecture Series: C.D. Mote Jr.
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

What's Coming, Whether We Like It or Not
A Presentation by National Academy of Engineering President C.D. Mote Jr.  

Predicting the future is unreliable. However, simply recognizing the direction to the future, when it is little changing, is often useful for planning purposes. Such was the case for university planning during the period of great stability 1945-1990.

However, when the direction to the future changes, as it did during the 1990s, guidance is influenced by the new, 21st century direction whatever it may be. This presentation addresses these 20th and 21st century directions, and offers observations drawn from the 21st century direction that may be useful in university planning today.

Planning for the 21st century direction, and stepping away from planning for the 20th century direction that no longer exists, is surprisingly difficult but necessary to at least consider.

Biography
C. D. Mote, Jr. is President of the National Academy of Engineering and Regents Professor, on leave, from the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Mote earned his BS, MS, and PhD degrees at the University of California, Berkeley in mechanical engineering between 1959 and 1963. After a postdoctoral year in England and three years as an assistant professor at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, he returned to Berkeley to join the faculty in mechanical engineering for the next 31 years. He and his students investigated a wide range of problems in dynamics, controls and biomechanical engineering. Fifty-eight Ph.D. students earned their degrees under his mentorship.

At Berkeley, he held an endowed chair in mechanical systems and served as chair of the mechanical engineering department from 1987 to 1991, and in 1991 he was appointed vice chancellor of the university expressly to create and lead a $1 billion capital campaign for the campus that ultimately reached $1.4 billion. In 1998, Dr. Mote was recruited to the presidency of the University of Maryland, College Park, a position he held until 2010 when he was appointed Regents Professor. His goal for the university was to elevate its self-expectation of achievement and its national and global position through proactive initiatives. During his tenure, he founded a 130-acre research park next to the campus, faculty research funds increased by 150%, and partnerships with surrounding federal agencies and with international organizations expanded greatly, among other achievements.

Dr. Mote’s recognitions include the NAE Founders Award, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Medal, and the Humboldt Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany. At the University of California, Berkeley, he was honored with the Distinguished Teaching Award, Distinguished Engineering Alumnus Award, Berkeley Citation, and Excellence in Achievement Award. He is an Honorary Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Academy of Mechanics, the Acoustical Society of America and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He holds three honorary doctorates and two honorary professorships.

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join the CU Art Museum in celebrating the 2014 MFA Fall Thesis Exhibition.
Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

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. 

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. 

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 MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

Shakespearean Dramaturgy Class (ages 12-18)
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Do you find yourself reading Shakespeare late into the night, compulsively looking up every unknown word? Do you find yourself gleefully digging in to the historical context of his plays, and agonizing over the nuances of the folio, quarto, and Holinshed source material? Do you devour as many versions of his plays as you can, contemplating the different ways each moment of the text might come alive on stage? The good news is, you are practicing the art of dramaturgy!

This class will plunge high school students into the art of dramaturgy, the crossroads between academic analysis and productions of plays. We will explore important questions such as; what is a dramaturg, how does one do dramaturgy, and what are the important differences in Shakespearean and contemporary dramaturgy? This class will delight any student interested in developing his or her play analysis, research skills, and practical eye towards the theatre. Although actors, directors, and designers are considered the body of a production, dramaturgs are certainly the blood!

Hosted by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's School of Theatre.

Event Image 2014 Annual Lester Lecture featuring David Nirenberg, University of Chicago
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

University of Colorado Department of Religious Studies in collaboration with the CU Mediterranean Studies Group and the Program in Jewish Studies presents the 2014 Annual Lester Lecture featuring David Nirenberg, History and the Committee on Social Thought, University of Chicago. David Nirenberg will be giving a talk titled "Sibling Rivalries, Scriptural Communities: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam" on Monday, November 10th, 2014 at 6:00pm in the British Studies Room inside Norlin Library.  

Inter-religious conflict—and, with it, many questions about the role of scripture in that conflict—is once again at center stage in our geopolitical consciousness. Do the claims of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic holy texts contribute to the violence between the various communities that read them? Or do they provide a basis for solidarity between these three religions? This talk will examine how the Qur’an, Torah, and New Testament have been read at different moments in history to consider the politics of conflict and community among the “peoples of the Book.”

The Lester Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of the Lester Family. This years lecture is dedicated to the memory of Robert C. Lester, Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado Boulder Religious Studies Department (1933-2013).  

Event Image Ethnic Studies at CU: Twenty Years in the Making
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join the Department of Ethnic Studies for a special evening as we honor the past and celebrate the future at the University of Colorado Boulder. The Department of Ethnic Studies celebrates twenty years of building the program on the CU Boulder campus. The program was established as a response to the 1994 demands of the Student Coalition for the Advancement and Ethnic Plurality, a student group alliance that challenged university administration to address diversity issues on the Boulder campus. These efforts led to many initiatives across the CU system, including the establishment of an Ethnic Studies Department in 1996. Student leaders aspired that Colorado's flagship university would continue to develop the program and ultimately offer a Masters and PhD. The University of Colorado Boulder has responded to that call from student and faculty leaders twenty years ago as we celebrate the inaugural year of the PhD in Comparative Ethnic Studies, approved by the Colorado Board of Regents in 2013. CU is only the fourth university in the country to offer an Ethnic Studies doctoral program and the only one east of the Pacific Coast. Carlos Windham, one of the student founders of the Student Coalition for Advancement and Ethnic Plurality, will join us to reflect on the events of 1994 and share his thoughts on this historic accomplishment.

CS Colloquium: Diana Franklin (UC Santa Barbara)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Computing Education Research: Pushing the Borders of Computing Today to Educate the Innovators of Tomorrow

ABSTRACT: Computing Education is fast becoming a critical societal need and a core research area within computer science. Efforts by the White House and code.org have raised awareness that computer science will be an essential component of most disciplines and occupations. Yet high school or college may be too late to develop the depth of skills across the breadth of students who need CS to innovate in the next generation. To understand how CS can be introduced earlier, we require basic research in how students of various ages learn computer science concepts. In this talk, Franklin will look at three areas of computing education research: Learning environments, big data research methods and fundamental learning questions. She will first present the work her team has completed in those areas. She will then present compelling research questions that arose from her work 
and how computer science core areas such as programming languages, machine learning, natural language processing, and HCI can be applied to support computing education research.

BIO: Diana Franklin is tenured teaching faculty (lecturer with security of employment) at UC Santa Barbara. Franklin received her PhD from UC Davis in 2002. She is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award and an inaugural recipient of the NCWIT faculty mentoring award. She was an assistant professor (2002-2007) and associate professor with tenure (2007) in Computer Science at the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, during which she held the Forbes Chair.  Her research interests include computing education research, parallel programming and architecture, and ethnic and gender diversity in computing. She is the author of "A Practical Guide to Gender Diversity for CS Faculty," from Morgan Claypool.

Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance: How to Read College Textbooks
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

(Held in Fleming 150)  Special Series: A One-Week Pause before the Push toward Finals.  Presenter: Dr. Peter Kratzke, Writing & Rhetoric.  Various football coaches have used the title to this seminar ("The Five Ps," it is sometimes called), and each word is crucial to your sustained success in college.

Event Image Domestic Violence: The Hidden Threat
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

 “Domestic Violence: The Hidden Threat” is the focus of the next Social Sciences Today Forum at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Domestic Violence: The Hidden Threat
Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014
6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Eaton Humanities 250 (Northwest of Norlin Library)
University of Colorado Boulder 

Speakers include three members of the CU-Boulder social science faculty:

- Joanne Belknap, professor of sociology
- Celeste Montoya, associate professor, women & gender studies
- Hillary Potter, associate professor, ethnic studies

They will speak about domestic violence for about 15 minutes each and then answer questions from the audience.

The Social Sciences Today Forum, a monthly series during the school year, is designed to help the public gain broader perspectives and deeper understanding of human society and how individuals relate to the community and one another.

Domestic violence is such a topic. During the last year, the forum has focused on Ebola virus disease, aging, “language wars,” inequality, immigration, natural disasters and “outsourcing.”

This forum brings the knowledge and expertise of social science faculty to the greater community and allows the community to ask questions of leading scholars.

The Eaton Humanities building is on the CU-Boulder main campus. Click here for a map:

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.

Event Image MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

Dr. Clark will offer a problem-oriented, contextual overview of a wide range of biophysical, social, and decision-making challenges in the GYE. Using the policy sciences analytic method, she will take a comprehensive standpoint based on her 46 years work in the region, focusing on specifi c conservation and sustainability issues confronting society, offi cials, and leaders. She will offer a strategic response and practical applications, and will outline a strategy, based on active learning and transformation, that promises to be more responsive to unfolding challenges. Throughout, she will speak to 1) the overall need for much more integration via interdisciplinarity as a basis for learning and transformation, 2) professional skills that can be introduced in environmental studies education and in workshops, and 3) examples of the successful application of these skills in the GYE and elsewhere by her students.

Event Image Global Challenges and Good Governance: Can Sport Deliver?
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Across the Western Hemisphere, a crisis of public confidence is shaking the International Olympic Committee and the international federations that deliver the Olympic competitions. At various referendums and public debates, taxpayers reject the prospect of bidding for future Olympics. Match-fixing with or without relation to gambling crime has caused police and governments to react worldwide. The doping industry continues to play cat-and-mouse with international controllers. FIFA and other governing bodies are regularly exposed for corruption, mismanagement and rigged elections. How can international sport get out of its political quagmire? One essential requirement is better governance in the international sports organisations, but the governing bodies that control world sport are reluctant to change. Play the Game's advocacy for good governance in sport has positioned the initiative and the biennial Play the Game conference as a leading voice for democracy, transparency and freedom of expression in international sport. Play the Game's founder and international director Jens Sejer Andersen will outline a number of current corruption cases in international sport and present some attempts to remedy the situation, among others the Sports Governance Observer, a benchmarking tool developed in cooperation with six European universities.

The research team has worked to document the architecture of an Early Christian basilica and an assemblage of Late Roman ceramics in order to establish connections between this and other sites on Cyprus and southern Anatolia. These connections hint at the material manifestations of the human decisions that constitute culture. The history of fieldwork on Cyprus becomes clear as it provides an unparalleled opportunity to analyze the material culture of related sites in the ancient world.

Event Image LASP Public Lecture—Kepler to K2: Repurposing a Great Observatory
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

NASA’s Kepler Mission, launched in 2009, finished its primary mission in May of 2013 when the second of four reaction wheels malfunctioned. This phase of the mission continues to revolutionize our understanding of the prevalence and characteristics of exoplanets in our galaxy through data analysis. Remarkably, the end of the primary mission data collection has opened the door to a new era for Kepler called K2, which was approved by NASA in June 2014. The K2 team of NASA Ames, Ball Aerospace, and LASP are now continuing exoplanet research but are also supporting many new science opportunities for the powerful space telescope including stellar research and extragalactic studies. Unlike Kepler, K2 science observations are community driven through 100% open competition to select targets. John Troeltzsch, the Ball Aerospace Kepler Program manager, will discuss highlights of Kepler’s prime mission, how K2 came about, and what K2 will accomplish.  

The lecture will be held in the LASP building, room W120.

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. 

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 MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

CS Colloquium: Fred Chong (UC Santa Barbara)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Large-Scale Quantum Computing Architectures: A Systems Perspective

ABSTRACT: Recent announcements by IBM, Google, and even Dwave reflect a growing interest in quantum computation. More than ever, computer scientists have the opportunity to help accelerate the evolution of quantum technologies towards practical, large-scale systems. The key is to formulate the challenges that allows us to draw on decades of experience designing classical computer systems.

In this talk, Chong will present a basic quantum computing architecture based upon trapped-ion technology.  He will examine several challenges to scaling this architecture and explore adaptations of traditional computer systems solutions towards these challenges.  Specifically, he will introduce an interconnection network that uses quantum teleportation to address reliability and latency challenges in long-distance communication. Chong will present a quantum memory hierarchy to decrease the area and performance penalties resulting from quantum error correction. He will discuss work that explores static and dynamic compilation strategies for generating quantum machine code which approximate arbitrary quantum rotations, an important primitive in many quantum
algorithms. Finally, he will discuss future research designing systems that use surface codes for error correction and other quantum technologies.

BIO: Fred Chong is the Director of Computer Engineering and a Professor of Computer Science at UCSB. He also leads the Greenscale effort for energy-efficient computing. Chong received his PhD from MIT in 1996 and was a faculty member and Chancellor's fellow at UC Davis from 1997-2005. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award, the DARPATech Most Significant Technical Achievement Award, and 5 best paper awards. His research interests include emerging technologies for computing, multicore and embedded architectures, computer security, and sustainable computing. Prof. Chong has been funded by NSF, Google, AFOSR, IARPA, DARPA, Mitsubishi, Altera and Xilinx. He has led or co-led $20M in awarded research, and been co-PI on an additional $10M.

"Effectiveness of Inhibiting Liquefaction Triggering by Shallow Ground Improvement Methods: Field Shaking Trials with T- Rex in Christchurch, New Zealand," by Dr. Kenneth H. Stokoe II of The University of Texas at Austin

ABSTRACT: Christchurch and the Canterbury region in New Zealand were devastated in 2010-2011 by a series of powerful earthquakes. The Christchurch area experienced widespread liquefaction that caused extensive damage. One critical problem facing the rebuilding effort is that the land remains at risk of liquefaction in future earthquakes. Therefore, effective engineering solutions must be developed to increase the resilience of homes and low-rise structures. To this end, a series of full-scale field trials of shallow ground improvement methods was undertaken. In the first stage, the following four methods were tested: (1) Rapid Impact Compaction (RIC), also known as dynamic compaction, (2) Rammed Aggregate Piers (RAP), which consist of gravel columns, (3) Low-Mobility Grouting (LMG) with a cement paste, also referred to as compaction grouting, and (4) a double row of horizontal beams (DRB) constructed beneath existing residential structures via soil-cement mixing. The improvement methods were targeted to improve soil within 4 m of the ground surface. Field trials involving test panels of the four improvement methods and two unimproved natural soil panels are presented. Each test panel was instrumented and characterized before shaking. A large mobile shaker operated by NEES@UTexas, called T-Rex, was used to excite each test panel with an increasing sequence of 100-cycle, dynamic horizontal loads. The pre-shaking characterization effort and the shaking results are presented. The effectiveness of inhibiting pore water pressure generation by the different ground improvement methods is discussed. 

BIO: Dr. Kenneth H. Stokoe, II is the holder of the Jennie C. and Milton T. Graves Chair in Engineering in the Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Austin. He has been working in the areas of field seismic measurements, dynamic laboratory measurements, and dynamic soil-structure interaction for more than 40 years. He has been instrumental in developing several small-strain field methods for in-situ shear wave velocity measurements. He has also developed two types of resonant column systems that are used to evaluate dynamic soil and rock properties in the laboratory. Over the last 12 years, Dr. Stokoe has led the development of large-scale mobile field equipment for dynamic loading of geotechnical systems, foundations and structures, an activity that has been funded by the National Science Foundation in the NEES (Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation) program. The equipment has already led to the development of new testing methods to evaluate soil nonlinearity and liquefaction directly in the field. Dr. Stokoe has received several honors and awards, including election to the National Academy of Engineering, the Harold Mooney Award from the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, the C.A. Hogentogler Award from the American Society for Testing and Materials, and the H. Bolton Seed Medal and the Karl Terzaghi Distinguished Lecturer from the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Lecture will be held in ECCR 200.

Marvels in the Medieval Imagination

Thursday 13 November 2014 at 5:00 PM

Hale 240

It is well known that medieval philosophers sought to work out the natural mechanisms of marvels, but the common relianceon imagination in their accounts has received little scholarly attention.  Professor Karnes’ paper details the proximate origins and early development of imagination’s association with marvels in the Latin West.  Starting with Al-Kindi in the ninth century and ending with Nicole Oresme in the fourteenth century, it surveys medieval theories of marvels and investigates the role of imagination within them.  This CMEMS-sponsored event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.  Students are very welcome to attend!

Grammar, Schmammar: The " G-Word" De-Mystified At Last
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

(Held in Fleming 170)  Special Series: A One-Week Pause before the Push toward Finals.  Presenter: Dr. Peter Kratzke, Writing & Rhetoric.  Even the word grammar sounds confusing or even intimating to people, but, in the end, the "g-word" is only one of three principal ways by which the English language operates (the other two are syntax and semantics). This seminar aims to de-mystify grammar by considering four--and only four--principles for understanding and controlling all grammar. You read that last sentence correctly: all you really need are four principles to understand how grammar plays its part in sentence-level practice. Once you understand these principles, writing becomes a lot, lot easier.

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 MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

Recalcitrant Nutrient Species Challenge Ability to Meet Low Nutrient Targets Reliably
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Technical Director for Wastewater HDR Engineering, Inc.  Folsom, CA

Recalcitrant Nutrient Species Challenge Ability

to Meet Low Nutrient Targets Reliably 

Friday, November 14, 2014

11:00 AM -12:00 PM (Lecture) at CU Boulder

in the Discovery Learning Center Collaboratory (link to map is below)

 

In-stream nutrient water quality criteria set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires very low total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) concentration in all water bodies. Because the background nutrient concentrations in many streams, rivers, lakes, and estuaries already exceed the nutrient criteria, there is no option for dilution credits for treatment plant effluent, and the nutrient criteria are translated into very low permit limits – TN limits below 1 mg/L and TP below 10 µg/L. Meeting these low limits reliably and economically poses new challenges to technology capabilities, planners, designers, and operators.

The performance and reliability of nutrient removal treatment plants can be determined by considering the fate of individual nitrogen and phosphorus species during conventional and advanced treatment processes. Inorganic species are efficiently removed, but the recalcitrant species limits the ability to meet the restrictive water quality limits. Data from benchmark full-scale nutrient removal facilities, along with data from special nutrient species characterizations, are used to identify the limits of technology and the reliability of attaining these limits.

This lecture presents the fundamentals of nutrient removal and its application to attain reliable nutrient removal. The topics covered include:

  • Nutrient removal principles and factors affecting performance and reliability
  • Nutrient species and their role in treatment technologies
  • Environmental water quality impacts of different nutrient species
  • Sustainability impacts of increasingly lower nutrient removal requirements
  • Strategies to improve performance and reliability

Dr. Neethling is a Senior Vice President with HDR Engineering, Inc. As the Technical Director for Wastewater Treatment, he is responsible for evaluating technical solutions to environmental problems, drawing from his academic and research experience to find practical solutions for current challenges.  Dr. Neethling’s primary focus has been on nutrient removal design and operations, having been involved in more than 75 biological nutrient removal (BNR) projects. He is currently the principal investigator for the WERF Nutrient Removal Challenge. This program engages researchers and collaborators across the globe to develop scientific information about the fate of nutrients (both nitrogen and phosphorus), their characteristics, treatability, and bioavailability in aquatic environments. The goal is to translate the research findings into practical solutions to protect water quality, allowing treatment facility operators to select sustainable, cost-effective methods and technologies to meet permit limits.

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.

The Colorado Climate Summit’s is about moving past conversation about global climate change into solving the problem across the state. The format of the event challenges participants to find solutions to real climate crisis scenarios being faced in every corner of the state. After a series of presentations with a expert panel of speakers and change agents, participant’s will breakout into teams with the presenters working with them to solve a series of real world problems facing Coloradan’s. Finally, everyone attending will assemble to write a blue-print making the switch to clean safe renewable energy by 2020 and reducing our water foot-print by 50% by 2025. Author and Photographer, Robert Castellino, founded Climate Colorado and launched the Climate Summit an annual event, to address these pressing problems facing across Colorado. Castellino’s experience listening and engaging with people, business owners and local municipal officials has led him to the realization, “people are missing the fundamental steps how to make the change from burning fossil’s as fuels to power their operations and energize their lives and to reduce their water consumption.” What concerns him most, “the technology, resources, tools, contractors and financing are all in place to get the job done, yet people are afraid to take the steps to save them money and improve the quality of their health and lives.” Ultimately, everyone attending will take away a personal action plan and make a commitment to go Net Zero by 2020 and reduce their water consumption 50% by 2025 known as the Switch 2020 Contract. Climate Colorado is partnering with Tesla, Solar City, Audubon Society, the National Wildlife Federation, Colorado Renewable Energy Society, Clean Energy Action and the American Latino Eco Festival to get the job done.

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.

Event Image MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

Unpacking the Mind of a Bully -The Neuroscience of Bullying

Lecture by sj Miller, PhD

Followed by a screening of Mean Creek

Science Lecture: Unpacking the Mind of a Bully - The Neuroscience of Bullying
Bullying has become accepted and normalized in the values, behaviors and rhetoric of our country. We see it becoming part of the American social fabric in terms of how people treat one another and even an expected rite of passage that is “just part of growing up.” Whether it can be controlled in all aspects of public life or not, bullying certainly impacts the lives of many students in our public schools, and our public schools can and should be structured in ways that not only prevent it, but also educate children to both recognize the damage done by bullying and elect to behave civilly toward each other. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, we can work to change the way our society views such behavior.  Building from the characters in the film Mean Creek, this talk will reflect on the attunement of the bully to what is considered normal and supported by diagnosis in the DSM V and social mores, as well as how bullies enact micro-aggressions to alleviate their anger.  Audience members will have the opportunity to discuss and generate action steps to shift the tides of bullying so that victims are not left with long-term social, emotional and psychological scars. 

sj Miller, PhD, an award-winning author, is Associate Professor of Literacy at the University of Colorado Boulder, and prepares pre-service students to teach middle and high school English. sj has published widely in journals and presented at national conferences on topics such as anti-bullying pedagogy, undervalued student literacies and identities, and challenging the gender binary, among others. Notably, sj won the 2005 Article of the Year Award from the English Journal for “Shattering Images of Violence in Young Adult Literature: Strategies for the Classroom,” and The Richard A. Meade Award for Unpacking the Loaded Teacher Matrix: Negotiating Space and Time Between. sj is incoming co-editor of English Education and co-editor of the book series, Social Justice Across Contexts in Education.

Film Screening: Mean Creek opens with a schoolyard bully picking on a smaller kid, develops into a story of revenge, and then deepens into a complex story of young teenagers trying to do the right thing. Rory Culkin, Ryan Kelley, Scott Mechlowicz, Josh Peck, Trevor Morgan, and Carly Schroeder are teenagers living in small-town Oregon. Some of the boys take a boat trip for a birthday celebration. When they get an idea to play a mean trick on the town bully, it suddenly goes too far. Soon they're forced to deal with the unexpected consequences of their actions. This film joins a small group of films including The River's Edge and Bully, which deal accurately and painfully with the consequences of peer-driven behavior. Kids who would not possibly act by themselves form groups that cannot stop themselves. It is an invaluable tool for moral education in schools, for discussions of situational ethics and refusing to go along with the crowd.

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.

Event Image MFA 2014 Fall Thesis Exhibition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Graduate school presents one with a solitary journey of discovery in the company of others.  Like the grass-worn lines that crisscross the campus quads, graduate study requires urgent trail blazing.  It focuses on questions of identity and history, materiality and form, wherein one attempts to fill in the missing gaps of knowledge, whether personal or cultural, historic or contemporary.  In its brief duration for an artist, graduate study also begs one to project the future, or the place you hope to reach. 

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
10:00 AM

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.

Each of these artists has negotiated this journey in highly personal and poetic ways, illuminating these desires as the need to make visible the invisible, and by doing so acknowledge the connections we all share whether they be our need for support in our striving for the ideal (Hebbert), or in examining the unseen distance between those closest to us (Pialtos), or by revealing how social ‘structures’ shape how we participate in public reception and discourse (Watters), or in the tactile nature of our yearnings to nurture and procreate (Guerra), or in how important it is to closely observe and attend to communities that exist in the margins of our societies (Lopez). 

All of these artist demonstrate tremendous empathy for their subjects, be it an audience member, a historic figure, an imagined being, or participant.  That these works embody such fundamental notions of love speaks beautifully to who these artists are and what they have to contribute to the world.  We applaud them for bringing to form such a critical, and too often, missing component in the dialogue within the art world and academy.  Their paths are worth following.

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.

RECENT ADVANCES IN MONITORING AND MODELING OF THE CRYOSPHERE IN THE 
EXTRATROPICAL ANDES CORDILLERA

ABSTRACT: Despite its importance as a water source for millions of people in Chile and Argentina, the cryosphere of the extratropical Andes Cordillera remains relatively unexplored compared with other large mountain areas in the world. This presentation shows recent research on the physical processes that control snow and ice accumulation and melt in this region, including new observations at the point and hillslope scales. This information is combined with state-of-the-art physically based modeling for reliable hydrologic predictions, and preliminary results are very promising. Future avenues of research include incorporating explicit glacio-hydrologic representation at a large scale, validating snow redistribution and sublimation estimates, and validating remotely sensed snow cover estimates for the purpose of model calibration.

What does it mean to embrace children’s emotional lives as productive aspects of their academic and social experiences? Whether or not they are invited, stories from life experiences, including stories of trauma, do enter classrooms and other sites of learning. Children’s deeply felt experiences can either be harnessed as resources or discouraged as distractions–a choice that has important implications for students’ opportunities to thrive.

Based on years of research with students and teachers, CU-Boulder School of Education Professor Elizabeth Dutro will reveal that the stakes are high in how stories of emotional experiences are incorporated into the act of learning. Dutro will draw upon children’s voices and stories to explore questions about what it means to invite, recognize, and carry these experiences in any learning setting.

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.

CS Colloquium: Stephen Becker (CU-Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Matrix Completion and Robust PCA

ABSTRACT: Matrix completion is a generalization of compressed sensing that seeks to determine missing matrix entries under some (non-Bayesian) assumptions about the matrix. The technique has generated a lot of excitement due to rigorous guarantees in some case, and also due to applications to machine learning (e.g., the Netflix prize problem). This talk discusses basic matrix completion, including efficient algorithms suitable for big data, as well as an extension of matrix completion known as robust PCA, which can handle large outliers in the data. We continue with several applications: inferring the structure of chromosomes, removing clouds from multi-spectral satellite image data, and verifying the properties of a quantum state or a quantum gate.

BIO: Stephen Becker is an assistant professor in the Applied Math Department at the University of Colorado Boulder. Previously he was a Goldstine Postdoctoral fellow at IBM Research T. J. Watson Lab and a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions at Paris 6 University. He received his PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology in 2011, and bachelor’s degrees in Math and Physics from Wesleyan University in 2005. His work focuses on large-scale continuous optimization for signal processing and machine learning applications.
Joint Computer Science & Music Theory Colloquium: Ian Quinn (Yale)
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Toward a Computational Archaeology of Pre-18th Century Music Cognition

ABSTRACT: Standard accounts of the music-theoretic revolution of the 18th century speak of a transition from modal to tonal organization in the music itself. One effect of this transition is a reduction in the number of modes from twelve (in the systems of Glarean and Zarlino) to two: major and minor. Computerized analytical work on datasets of late medieval office chants, early Lutheran chorales, 17th-century English madrigals, and other repertories suggests that the local organization of music in different modes, particularly between cadences, does not differ as much as the standard accounts (based on contemporaneous treatises rather than on musical data) would have us believe. The history of solmization, which, as in modern la-based minor, does not typically hypostatize scale degree prior to the introduction of the rule of the octave, reinforces this view.

BIO: Ian Quinn is Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Music at Yale, where he also teaches in the Cognitive Science Program. He has won the Emerging Scholar Award and the Outstanding Publication Award from the Society of Music Theory. He was Editor of the Journal of Music Theory from 2004 to 2011. Current projects focus on Steve Reich, 17th-century tonality, and computational methods for corpus analysis.

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.

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 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 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 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 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.
