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

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

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

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

The 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?"

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 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 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. 
Norlin Library Building CLOSED December 20-January 4 (Multi-Day Event)

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 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.

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

Event Image 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.

Students Can Learn Hard Things: Transforming Our Courses by Teaching What Matters Most
Matthew Sanders, Associate Professor, Utah State University

Our disciplines and fields of study are rich with concepts and theories that transform the way students see, think about, and engage the world. This transformation is what draws us to dedicate our careers to research and teaching, and we want that for our undergraduate students. Yet, many of these threshold concepts and theories are complicated and therefore get watered down or even skipped in undergraduate curricula because it is often assumed that they are too difficult to teach and learn. But such concepts can and should be taught. Students can learn hard things. By mastering hard things, students transform into more capable and energetic learners.

Bystander Training: Intervention Skill Development as a Path Through the Liminal Space

Teresa Wroe and Lee Scriggins, Community Health, Wardenburg Health Services

Potentially harmful encounters have often been conceptualized as occurring between an agent and a target. The bystander framework theorizes the role of others, and provides a standpoint from which people can act as neither perpetrators nor victims. This perspective is a foundational shift (a threshold concept) and enables people to see themselves as active agents outside the closed victim perpetrator dyad. We believe this perspective shift is accomplished best through active experimentation, testing, and skill building. The experience of attempting to shape potentially harmful dynamics, and the meaning made of these experiences can create a fundamental shift in agency that is useful in the classroom, as well as for lifelong efficacy in teaching and professional engagement. This session will give an overview of the program and assessment underway on Bystander Training at CU Boulder, and will introduce concrete skills that can support a creative, flexible learning environment that is inclusive and accessible.

Event Image Spring Conference: Teaching Rhetorical Analysis as a First Step of Critical Thinking
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM


Teaching Rhetorical Analysis as a First Step of Critical Thinking in the Social Sciences and Humanities

Jennifer Cullison, Lead 2013–14, History

Are you teaching in a discipline that usually requires college-level research and writing assignments? Helping students identify how common, everyday arguments in the media and popular culture are strategically persuasive can be a pedagogical segue toward students’ deeper critical thinking. In this workshop, we will explore possible lesson plans for teaching students how to identify the rhetoric that authors use to convince readers of their arguments (or products). We will then discuss how to bridge from this level of thinking toward critical engagement in academic research, so that students learn how to question deeply and build theses that result in discovery of new perspectives and knowledge.

Applying Cognitive Awareness Concepts to the Pedagogy of Music

Sarah Stoneback, Instructor, Regis University

Each music student hears, feels, comprehends and experiences musical passages differently. Through my evidence-based research, I have developed a structural and systematic approach to teaching difficult concepts in music, which includes: 1) visualization 2) technical facilitation 3) practice techniques 4) listening skills—pitch and interval identification/recognition, and 5) verbal communication between student/teacher. In my demonstration, I provide concepts and practices for teacher instruction inspired from Border’s work on Kolb. This method has proven to invigorate and enthuse students and to increase their learning.

Using a Jigsaw Method to Teach Science Labs
Micah Battson, PhD Candidate, CSU

Teaching a laboratory course can be hard, especially when you’re facilitating group work with students. This workshop will introduce the concept of the Jigsaw Method of teaching that is currently being used in an undergraduate science lab at CU Boulder. By adapting this method to your individual teaching needs you will discover new ways to improve student engagement, enjoyment and performance in the classroom. We will also put a particular emphasis on applying this method to the teaching of Threshold Concepts within your own disciplines.

9:00 AM - 10:15 AM


Breaking the Fourth Wall: Pedagogical Shifts and Liminal Space in Diverse Undertakings
Polly McLean, Professor, CMCI

This talk explores the changing context of teaching and learning practices as a way to ensure a more critical role in rethinking diversity as a frontier threshold concept. Moving away from the romanticized multiculturalism thesis, which has accomplished little in way of producing a newer and richer America in form and content(think Ferguson), we will explore the ways in which universities create boundaries (and more) when it comes to diversity—between different content areas, between categories of learners, offering each access to selected forms of knowledge. Using the learning contract(the cultural tool—aka the syllabus) that is the framework of student learning, we will explore how “troublesome knowledge”, a feature of diversity, can transform learners and teachers alike to allow fora richer, more engaging and transformative content experience.

Close Reading as a Threshold Concept: “Aha!” Moments in the Literature Classroom

Teresa Nugent, Lecturer, English and Continuing Education

Despite the fact that close reading has been a mantra in literature courses for the last century, many students struggle with this fundamental concept. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how thinking about close reading as a threshold concept can help our students achieve “Aha!” moments. We will explore how the idea of a threshold concept can, itself, become a transformative threshold concept by offering both instructors and students a cognitive and affective roadmap for the experience of learning. By enhancing students’ awareness of the process of learning, we can help them become more open and engaged in their own learning experiences.

Interdisciplinary Holism: Teaching the Unbelievable

John Kineman, Senior Research Scientist, CIRES

The Western World does not have a general concept of a whole system, let alone a general theory of whole systems. Our scientific world view has focused on parts of systems and compartmentalized disciplines that do their work in academic 'silos'. Despite many urgent calls for interdisciplinary, complex, and whole thinking to address local to global socio-ecological sustainability, historical traditions in the sciences serve to keep 'hard' and 'soft' disciplines separate. An experimental Seminar was conducted in the Fall of 2014 in the Environmental Studies Program to explore approaches and barriers to whole system thinking. In this workshop we will go over lessons learned and discuss various approaches to bridging the soft-hard gap and developing a language for whole systems dialogue.

Diversity is often touted as an educational resource that may be put to good use in the classroom. But what is it? And how exactly might it be used to enhance students’ learning experience? This workshop is designed to give educators the tools to meet the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds and to harness this diversity as an asset in teaching.

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.

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.

"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.

Character Makeup (ages 10-18)
10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

The goal of this course is to teach students basic techniques of character makeup. Character makeup focuses on human makeups. We will study and employ different effects a makeup designer might encounter in designing a variety of characters in Shakespeare's plays. Techniques used will include: shading, feature enhancement and diminishing, age adjustment, and feature deformity. The class will culminate in a full-face makeup that interprets a specific character from Shakespeare's canon. (Teacher: Roxxy Duda)

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.

There are over 10 million children in the U.S. speaking languages other than English, 85% of whom speak Spanish as their other language. These children have enormous potential, but historically have not been well served by U.S. schools. In addition, school programs provided only in English often result in both Spanish language loss and a missed opportunity to foster bilingualism and intercultural understanding among all children. CU-Boulder School of Education Professors Kathy Escamilla, Lucinda Soltero-González, & Sue Hopewell will discuss Literacy Squared®—a program designed to accelerate the development of English as well as maintain and develop Spanish in emerging bilingual children—as well as suggest research-based strategies to make the most of the rich multicultural resources of children in the U.S. and encourage bilingual literacy.

Flutes, Wine, and Astronomy: Shamans in Early East Asia?

These include evidence of music (drums, flutes, bells), alcoholic beverages, and evidence of worship of the sky. Dr. Nelson will examine the Chinese evidence and then consider it in the broader perspectives of shamanism in East Asia from the Neolithic era to the present.

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 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 “Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece”: A Lecture with Devin Naar
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

"'They Threw Our Bones into the Sea': Opportunism and Collaboration in Nazi Occupied Greece"

A lecture with Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. Naar


Monday, January 26 @ 7PM
Old Main Theater
Free and Open to the Public
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

In conjunction with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27, 2015, the Program in Jewish Studies welcomes this year's Visiting Holocaust Scholar Devin E. NaarMarsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington, for a lecture and colloquium.


The question of collaboration remains one of the most sensitive and contested issues regarding the study and memory of the Holocaust in Greece today, especially in the major port city of Salonica (Thessaloniki). On the eve of the war, Salonica was home to the country’s largest Jewish population, numbering 56,000; in 1945, less than 2,000 remained. Another casualty of the occupation was the city’s vast Jewish burial ground, which covered more than eighty acres and was once the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. During the Nazi occupation, local authorities initiated the destruction of the cemetery and subsequently erected the city’s university campus on top of it. Marble tombstones were used for construction projects throughout the city. 


This presentation will explore the rationale underpinning the demolition of the Jewish cemetery and how the processes at work during the Nazi’s occupation provided an opportunity to resolve an on-going conflict regarding the status of the Jewish burial ground and preexisting aspirations to expand the nearby university. During the pre-war period, local Jewish leaders argued that the tombstones “spoke,” that the inscriptions narrated the history of the city and ought to be preserved as monuments of national patrimony. The competing interests came to a head during the occupation. Even if the stones “spoke,” who was prepared to listen?


Drawing on previously unstudied archives of the Jewish community, records from the local chamber of commerce, and newspapers in Judeo-Spanish, Greek, and French, this talk presents a window into the confrontation and negotiation between the Jewish community of Salonica and the Greek state over urban space and the national narrative in the context of the Nazi occupation. Controversy over the place of the Jewish dead ultimately served as a metaphor for the uncertain place of the living.


Devin E. Naar is the Marsha and Jay Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies, Assistant Professor of History, and Chair of the new Sephardic Studies Program at the University of Washington. He completed his Ph.D. in history at Stanford University where his dissertation, “Jewish Salonica and the Making of the ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans,’ 1890-1943,” received the department’s award for best dissertation. A former Fulbright scholar to Greece, Naar has served as a fellow in the Society of Scholars at the University of Washington Center for the Humanities, and also sits on the academic advisory council of the Center for Jewish History in New York.

A classic story of discovery, love, family and the harm parents can inflict on their children.

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 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.

Event Image The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Paul Zindel
Directed by Amy Osatinski

Paul Zindel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play tells the story of Tillie, a bright young girl in 1970s America whose mother is mentally ill. As she works on the eponymous research, she and her disabled sister Ruth discover that sometimes, the only person you can count on is yourself. A classic story of discovery, love, family and the harm parents can inflict on their children.

“Paul Zindel has written a masterful, pacesetting drama. It combines moments of pain, poignancy, beauty, and hope. It is the most compelling work of its kind since Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie.”—Variety

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 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.

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 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

By Molière
Translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Lynn Nichols

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

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