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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room. For more information, email spc@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144.

CS Colloquium: Sarah Loos (Carnegie Mellon)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Verifying Distributed Car and Aircraft Systems with Logic and Refinement 

ABSTRACT: Formal methods and theorem proving have been used successfully in many discrete applications, such as chip design and verification, but computation is not confined to the discrete world. Increasingly, we depend on discrete software to control safety-critical components of continuous physical systems. It is vital that these hybrid (discrete and continuous) systems behave as designed, or they will cause more damage than they intend to fix. In this talk, Loos will present several challenges associated with verifying hybrid systems and how we use differential dynamic logics to ensure safety for hybrid systems under a continuously infinite range of circumstances and unbounded time horizon. 

She will discuss the first formal proof of safety for a distributed car control system and the first formal verification of distributed, flyable, collision avoidance protocols for aircraft. In both cases, their verification holds for an unbounded number of cars or aircraft, so the systems are protected against unexpected emergent behavior, which simulation and testing may miss. 

Providing the first formal proofs of these systems required the development of several seemingly unrelated techniques. Loos' team has since identified a unifying challenge for each case study: it is difficult to compare hybrid systems, even when their behaviors are very similar. She will discuss the development of a logic with first-class support for refinement relations on hybrid systems, called differential refinement logic, which aims to address this core challenge for hybrid systems verification within a formal framework. 

BIO: Sarah Loos is a PhD student in the computer science department at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research interests include logical analysis and formal verification of distributed hybrid systems, such as distributed car control and collision avoidance protocols for aircraft. She is a Department of Energy computational science graduate fellow and an NSF graduate research fellow. In addition to her role as co-editor of the ACM-W newsletter, Sarah has served as a student member on the board of trustees and board of advisors for the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology.  She currently serves on the board of directors for the Foundation for Learning Equality, a non-profit tech company dedicated to bringing the online learning revolution to communities with little or no internet connectivity.  Sarah received her undergraduate B.S. degrees in computer science and math from Indiana University.

Title:
Matrix Completion and Robust PCA: new data analysis tools

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, functional imaging of the brain, removing clouds from multi-spectral satellite image data, and verifying the properties of a quantum state or a quantum gate.

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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room. For more information, email spc@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144.

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

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

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

Teacher Institute:

Affirming Gender and Sexual Diversity in the Classroom

Research continues to suggest that many teachers feel unsupported in their efforts to create safer, more affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming students. Our goal, in these institutes, is to change this! 

You’re invited to attend a 2-DAY professional development TEACHER INSTITUTE, hosted by the School of Education at CU-Boulder, focused on gender and sexual diversity.

In these institutes, we hope to organize learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender and sexual diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we'll collaborate, practice, role play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues. Here’s what these institutes are all about:

  • Collaborating with teacher colleagues in local districts, CU pre-service teachers, and faculty
  • Learning practical strategies for creating safer, more inclusive and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum (consistent with Educator Effectiveness standards)
  • Creating Standards-based LGBTQ-inclusive lesson plans
  • Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics
  • Receiving contact hour credit for licensure recertification
  • Eating yummy food with awesome educators

When: Monday, March 9th and Monday, March 16th, 4:30-7:00 pm (participants must attend both days)

"Understanding Bodiam Castle"

Monday, March 9, 2015
OLD MAIN CHAPEL
7:00 PM

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

Event Image 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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room. For more information, email spc@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144.

CS Colloquium: Kristina Lerman (USC Information Sciences Institute)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Paying Attention: How Cognitive Biases Shape Online Behavior 

ABSTRACT: The many decisions people make about what information to consume affect emerging trends, their popularity, and the diffusion of information through online networks. Due to constraints of available time and cognitive resources, the ease of discovery strongly affects how people allocate their attention. Through empirical analysis and online experiments, Lerman measures the impact of cognitive biases on collective attention. She shows that position of information in the user interface determines whether it will be seen, while explicit signal about its popularity increases the likelihood of response. Accounting for these factors simplifies social behavior and allows more accurate prediction of social contagion, social voting and peer recommendation. 

BIO: Kristina Lerman is a Project Leader at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute and holds a joint appointment as a Research Associate Professor in the USC Computer Science Department. Trained as a physicist, she now applies network- and machine learning-based methods to problems in social computing and social media analysis.

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

CU Department of History Presents

Dr. Morris Rossabi
Professor of History, CUNY / Columbia

“Genghis Khan and the Mongois: Barbarians or Harbingers of World History”

Wednesday, March 11, 2015, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
HUMN 250

Most people perceived the thirteenth-century Mongols as plunderers, rapacious, and murderers and believed that their invasions and rule were destructive, if not disastrous.  Over the past two decades, specialists have challenged this depiction of the Mongols and of Genghis Khan and have focused on the Mongols’ contribution to trade, relations between East and West, and cultural, religious, technological, and artistic diffusion.  These recent works have not ignored the bloodshed and the colossal damage the Mongols wrought, but  they also have attempted their role in Eurasian history.  This slide-illustrated presentation describes and assesses Genghis as an individual and the Mongols as a group.

Wednesday, March 11 @ 4PM - 6PM

Open to CU Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students and Majors and Minors in Jewish Studies

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

Viewing twentieth-century history through the lens of language, Liora Halperin questions the accepted scholarly narrative of a Zionist move away from multilingualism and towards Hebrew, demonstrating how Jews in Palestine remained connected linguistically by both preference and necessity to a world outside the boundaries of the pro-Hebrew community even as it promoted Hebrew and achieved that language’s dominance. The story of language encounters in Jewish Palestine is a fascinating tale of shifting power relationships, both locally and globally. Halperin’s absorbing study explores how a young national community was compelled to modify the dictates of Hebrew exclusivity as it negotiated its relationships with its Jewish population, Palestinian Arabs, the British, and others outside the margins of the national project and ultimately came to terms with the limitations of its national project in an interconnected world.

Haytham Bahoora, Assistant Professor of Arabic, will serve as the respondent for this colloquium.

Liora Halperin is Assistant Professor of History and Jewish Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research considers the cultural history of the Jewish community in Palestine prior to the establishment of the State of Israel; the history of Jewish and Zionist language politics; Jewish-Arab, Jewish-Ottoman, and Jewish-British relations; and the cultural history of archives and archiving in Palestine and Israel.

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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art 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. 

A Queer Endeavor 2-Day Teacher Institute: Affirming Gender & Sexual Diversity (RSVP Required) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Teacher Institute:

Affirming Gender and Sexual Diversity in the Classroom

Research continues to suggest that many teachers feel unsupported in their efforts to create safer, more affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming students. Our goal, in these institutes, is to change this! 

You’re invited to attend a 2-DAY professional development TEACHER INSTITUTE, hosted by the School of Education at CU-Boulder, focused on gender and sexual diversity.

In these institutes, we hope to organize learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender and sexual diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we'll collaborate, practice, role play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues. Here’s what these institutes are all about:

  • Collaborating with teacher colleagues in local districts, CU pre-service teachers, and faculty
  • Learning practical strategies for creating safer, more inclusive and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum (consistent with Educator Effectiveness standards)
  • Creating Standards-based LGBTQ-inclusive lesson plans
  • Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics
  • Receiving contact hour credit for licensure recertification
  • Eating yummy food with awesome educators

When: Monday, March 9th and Monday, March 16th, 4:30-7:00 pm (participants must attend both days)

Where: CU-Boulder School of Education (room to be announced)

The Morality of Capitalism
Yaron Brook, Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute
Thursday, March 12, 2015
7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Norlin Library, British Studies Room, 5th floor
University of Colorado Boulder

This talk is free and open to the public.

Capitalism is not only moral, it is also the only moral social system, contends Yaron Brook, the executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.

Capitalism has an undisputed record of wealth generation, yet it has always functioned under a cloud of moral suspicion, Brook states.

“In a culture that venerates Mother Teresa as a paragon of virtue, businessmen sit in stoic silence while their pursuit of profits is denounced as selfish greed,” he writes, adding that society tells businessmen to sacrifice, to serve others, to “give back”—counting on their acceptance of self-interest as a moral crime, with chronic guilt its penance.

“Is it any wonder that productive giants from John D. Rockefeller to Bill Gates have behaved as if profit-making leaves a moral stain that only tireless philanthropy can launder but never fully remove?”

Yaron Brook is the coauthor of the national best-seller Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government and a contributing author to both Neoconservatism: An Obituary for an Idea and Winning the Unwinnable War: America’s Self-Crippled Response to Islamic Totalitarianism.

Brook immigrated to the United States, having been born and raised in Israel, and serving in its military. He has a Ph.D. in Finance from the University of Texas at Austin and taught finance Santa Clara University for seven years.

He speaks around the world on issues related to capitalism, economics and finance, as well as Ayn Rand and her philosophy.  Brook’s podcast is available every Monday, from 10 a.m. to noon at blogtalkradio.com/yaronbrook.  Find him on Twitter at @yaronbrook. This talk is free and open to the public.

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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art 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. 

A Queer Endeavor 2-Day Teacher Institute: Affirming Gender & Sexual Diversity (RSVP Required) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Teacher Institute:

Affirming Gender and Sexual Diversity in the Classroom

Research continues to suggest that many teachers feel unsupported in their efforts to create safer, more affirming classrooms and schools for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming students. Our goal, in these institutes, is to change this! 

You’re invited to attend a 2-DAY professional development TEACHER INSTITUTE, hosted by the School of Education at CU-Boulder, focused on gender and sexual diversity.

In these institutes, we hope to organize learning communities across grades, schools, and subjects in which we share our experiences and support one another as we take up topics of gender and sexual diversity in our classrooms and schools. In these gatherings, we'll collaborate, practice, role play, invent, reflect, and basically create amazing trajectories for ourselves and our colleagues. Here’s what these institutes are all about:

  • Collaborating with teacher colleagues in local districts, CU pre-service teachers, and faculty
  • Learning practical strategies for creating safer, more inclusive and affirming classrooms through both the social and academic curriculum (consistent with Educator Effectiveness standards)
  • Creating Standards-based LGBTQ-inclusive lesson plans
  • Becoming a leader in your school and a resource for your staff around these important topics
  • Receiving contact hour credit for licensure recertification
  • Eating yummy food with awesome educators

When: Monday, March 9th and Monday, March 16th, 4:30-7:00 pm (participants must attend both days)

Where: CU-Boulder School of Education (room to be announced)

Space is limited, so please RSVP to aqueerendeavor@colorado.edu by February 14, 2015.

Please include the following in your RSVP: Name, subject area, elementary/ secondary

* Feel free to email with any questions as well!*

March 13-14, 2015

About the TRANSforming Gender Conference

The University of Colorado-Boulder’s TRANSforming Gender Conference is celebrating its ninth year! The Conference hosts national and local transgender, genderqueer, and Two-Spirit activists and scholars to raise awareness of how we can celebrate the diversity of gender and biological sex. This year’s conference will feature the following keynotes:

In 2009 Mac and Rocco Kayiatos co-founded Original Plumbing: the seminal quarterly publication documenting the culture of transgender men.  Informational and entertaining at once, OP has featured interviews with, and portraits of, Geo Wyeth, Margaret Cho, Ian Harvie, Austin Bjorkman, Kate Bornstein, Silas Howard and many others.  In addition to editing and publishing, Mac has photographed the majority of Original Plumbing’s content.  Recent notable projects include a collaboration with Los Angeles-based performance artist Zackary Drucker.  Initiated by Mac, a series of portraits taken in Drucker’s upstate New York childhood home formed the content of the first issue of his publication Translady Fanzine.

Digital Manufacturing & the Next Revolution: An Industry/University Workshop
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The University of Colorado Boulder is hosting an interactive workshop with the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute (DMDII) for companies to learn about DMDII's mission, network with research faculty, and form strategic partnerships. DMDII is the nation’s flagship research institute for developing and demonstrating cutting-edge digital technologies to reduce the time and cost of manufacturing, strengthening the capabilities of the U.S. supply chain, and reducing acquisition costs for both consumer and defense markets.

Digital manufacturing uses an integrated, computer-based system composed of simulation, 3D visualization, analytics and various collaboration tools to create product and manufacturing process definitions simultaneously in a cyber-secure environment. Design innovation is the ability to apply these technologies, tools and products to re-imagine the entire manufacturing process from end to end.

DMDII members include a wide range of companies involved in the digital transformation of the U.S. manufacturing economy — manufacturers, manufacturing equipment suppliers, design software companies, system integration hardware, and software suppliers.

Currently, there are seven new project calls totaling more than $25 million. This interactive workshop will discuss how to become a member of DMDII and receive funding for applied research projects. It will facilitate networking and dialogue vital to solving the most difficult technical challenges, with faculty delivering brief overviews of their research programs. Companies will also have the opportunity to provide DMDII with feedback on engagement from an industry perspective.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room. For more information, email spc@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144.

Title:
Explain me this: how we Learn what not to Say

Abstract: In certain cases, linguistic formulations are semantically sensible and syntactically well-formed, and yet noticeably dispreferred (e.g., ??She disappeared the ticket; ??the afraid boy). Experimental evidence suggests that competition in context—statistical preemption—plays a key role in learning what not to say in these cases.  I will also offer a proposal as to why adult second language learners seem to have more trouble avoiding these dispreferred utterances.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto - After decades of planning and a 9-year journey, the New Horizons spacecraft will reach Pluto on July 14, 2015, providing our first close-up view of the Kuiper Belt Object and its five moons. Since Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto in 1930 there have been rare breakthroughs in our knowledge of this small icy object on the edge of the solar system: detection of a large moon Charon in 1975, detection of an atmosphere in 1988, and measurements of a few atmospheric constituents using the largest telescopes on Earth. Hubble Space Telescope pictures show just a fuzzy blob – though revealing intriguing high contrast dark and light areas. And in the past few years Hubble observers have picked out a total of five moons. New Horizons will get better and better over spring 2015. The spacecraft will fly through Pluto’s escaping atmosphere, measure the interaction of the planet’s escaping atmosphere with the solar wind, and take detailed pictures of the surface of Pluto and its moons.

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.

About the TRANSforming Gender Conference

The University of Colorado-Boulder’s TRANSforming Gender Conference is celebrating its ninth year!

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.

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.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

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

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

“Time Cues for Human Circadian Clocks”

The circadian time keeping system drives near-24-hour rhythms in physiology and behavior so that biological processes (e.g., metabolism and sleep) occur at optimal times of day. The period of the  “master”  circadian clock, located in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus, in humans is on average slightly longer than 24h. Thus, to remain in synch with the 24h Earth day, endogenous circadian clocks require environmental input.  This talk will describe key concepts of human circadian timekeeping, cell-autonomous clock mechanisms, entrainment of endogenous clocks, ways of measuring circadian timing in humans in vivo and in human cells, and will discuss recent findings on the influence of light and caffeine on human circadian timing.

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Evaluating Mule Deer Migration Behavior, Tools of the Trade and What We Have Learned
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Recent technological advances in monitoring animal movements have allowed for detailed investigations on migratory behavior. In climates that experience extreme seasonal weather shifts, it is common for animals to migrate to different elevations throughout the year in order to find the nutrition they need to survive and reproduce. In this presentation, Dr. Chuck Anderson will examine the methods and techniques used to address migration behavior, and provide examples from a mule deer research project being conducted in northwest Colorado.

This is the second lecture of the Steps in Stone Lecture Series on animal locomotion to accompany the  Steps in Stone, Walking Through Time exhibit. This series of talks will celebrate the movements of animals on Earth—both today and in the past.

There is considerable controversy over the use of standardized tests to assess academic progress of children with special needs. The very act of standardization appears to conflict with the tailoring of a student’s learning goals through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Some also argue that the process of preparing students to take a standardized test takes away valuable time that could be spent on more authentic learning activities. CU-Boulder School of Education Professor Derek Briggs will discuss the pros and cons of standardized testing for children with special needs. He will also explore the features of the newly designed large-scale assessments that all Colorado students will be taking in the spring of 2015 and discuss how these features may address frequently raised concerns about standardized testing.

The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich.

Event Image Systematics, Social Evolution, and Historical Biogeography of Sweat Bees
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Sweat bees are a hyper abundant and diverse group of insects that present difficult but intriguing challenges to biologists. The incredible behavioral diversity of sweat bees makes them ideal candidates for studies of social evolution. Their high abundance and distribution make them important contributors to the ecosystem, namely as pollinators.  However, the taxonomy of the group is extremely challenging which complicates the understanding of pollination, conservation and evolution. In this presentation, Dr. Jason Gibbs will discuss efforts to resolve taxonomic barriers, the diversity of social behavior, and ongoing efforts to understand sweat bees' historical biogeography and social evolution.

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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

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.

All Day

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

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.

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.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

As part of this year's Day of Radical Jewish Music, join the Program in Jewish Studies, the Department of Italian, and the CU Art Museum for a public concert with Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess.

The Ginzburg Geography: A Sonic Exploration of Italian Antifascism

Concert with Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess

Monday, March 30 @ 7:00PM – 9:30PM

Old Main Theater

Free and open to the public
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

This event will live music, as well as a conversation between Jewlia Eisenberg of Charming Hostess with professors Valerio Ferme and David ShneerSpoken word in Italian and English will be performed by students in the Department of Italian and the Program in Jewish Studies, and the event will feature a bilingual Italian-English zine about Ginzburg by Jewish Studies major, Italian minor Shikari Browne.

The Ginzburg Geography is drawn from the life and work of Natalia and Leone Ginzburg, Italian Jews famous for anti-fascist resistance and intellectual brilliance. It is a sonic map focusing on where they lived together: Turin, Pizzoli, and Rome. Charming Hostess' map refers to specific physical locations, but also resonates with the actions and relationships associated with those places, allowing a sense-memory of places in time. Much of the information in their map comes from the Ginzburgs’ writing on place.

The map of The Ginzburg Geography is comprised of new and traditional music drawing from the Italian regions of Piemonte, Abruzzo and Rome; from Italian Jewish liturgy, the oldest and most remote in Europe; and from Italian anti-fascist songs – work chants and resistance anthems. This iteration of The Ginzburg Geography is in concert form. It will soon be presented as an immersive performance that maps not only the journeys of the Ginzburgs, but also those of visitor participants, creating a sonic forest of maps to walk among, listen to, and add to.

Jewlia Eisenberg is a composer, extended-technique vocalist, lay cantor, and the founder of Charming Hostess. She is interested in the particular emotional, erotic and spiritual terrains that the voice can traverse. Her work explores the intersection of text and the sounding body, pushing for translation strategies between verbal and non-verbal languages. Collaborators include anarcholits Fantom Slobode, choreographer Jo Kreiter and filmmaker Lynn Sachs. Commissioned work includes Harmonices Mundi, an opera about Kepler’s mother, and Red Rosa, a song cycle based on the letters of Rosa Luxemburg. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at MIT and University of Denver; she has studied with sozanda Muna Nissimova, Fred Frith and Daniel Boyarin. Hobbies include class war, knitting, and smashing SUV windshields. Brooklyn born and bred, she now calls San Francisco home.

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.

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.

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Long time colleagues Ross Edwards, Eric Horn, Bob Hopper, Scott Brauninger, and Dave Williams came together in 2007 to form Build Group. Shortly thereafter, Nathan Rundel and Jason Berry joined the team. Combined, the group  has over 193 years of construction experience and has played integral roles in some of the most prominent and complex buildings constructed in California. The team formed Build Group with a goal of working closely with clients and driving innovation within the industry. With that in mind, they created a flat company structure that minimizes middle management, allowing the Principals to remain close to the work and entrusting employees to own their work. Their willingness to roll up their sleeves and do work has cultivated a construction company full of true revolutionary builders.

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

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

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.

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 at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

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

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

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

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

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room. For more information, email spc@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144.

What Our Mothers Ate Really Matters: The Relationship Between Fetal Genes, Maternal Diet, and Risk for Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a neurodevelopmental disorder: the adolescent or young adult onset of symptoms is the result of gene by environmental interactions that begin prenatally. This presentation will discuss the perinatal development of one brain function related to risk for schizophrenia, examining both genetic and environmental contributions. Translational implications, including a prenatal maternal nutritional prevention intervention, are discussed.

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

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 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.

Roth’s interests would lead him to collaborate with concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, artist Daniel Spoerri, and many other influential figures in the decades after World War II. His acute fascination with poetry, design, and print compelled him to experiment with books and bookmaking. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. Gesammelte Werke is not a chronological presentation of Roth’s activities, but rather an artistic archival undertaking. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program. The exhibit is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and an opening reception will be held Wednesday, March 11, at 4 p.m. in the Norlin Library Special Collections Reading Room.

Event Image Captives and Culture Change: A Study from Chaco Canyon
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Captives have been found in societies of all social levels throughout time, possibly as early as the Neolithic era. Captives had the potential to be an important force for cultural transmission. Archaeologists are just beginning to recognize and explore this important form of cultural interaction. As part of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecuture series, Dr. Cameron will use case studies from around the world to discuss the prevalence and antiquity of captive-taking, in addition to who is taken captive and what happens to them. Dr. Cameron will also explore the presence of captive women in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, during the height of the Chaco Era (900-1150 AD).

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 (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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

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

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

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art 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.

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit is on display now through May 15, 2015 at the University of Colorado Boulder Special Collections Reading Room in Norlin Library. The show features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents.
