11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.

Event Image Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
2:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon, Wednesday, March 8, 2:30 p.m.

Wednesday, March 8, 2:30-7:30 p.m.
CU Art Museum

Please join us and our friends from CU Boulder University Libraries for a fun, inclusive one-day event that brings together diverse communities to create and improve Wikipedia articles related to women in the arts! 
Despite its wide reach, Wikipedia suffers from a gender gap, and its content is skewed by the lack of women’s voices. This represents an alarming absence in an important repository of shared knowledge, especially as our society is increasingly beset by rampant misinformation. Join us in changing this! We’re gathering women and allies together to celebrate women's cultural achievements and edit Wikipedia articles about women in the arts.

All are welcome, and no Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; tutoring will be provided for Wikipedia newcomers. Women editors, especially women of color and diverse gender expression, are encouraged to attend. 

Please bring a laptop if possible. There will be a limited number of computers available.

Feminist Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon
2:30 PM - 7:30 PM

This event is a node for a worldwide series of events where people get together to add and edit Wikipedia pages about women in the arts and humanities in order to increase gender parity on Wikipedia.

The event is free and open to ALL, and one doesn't have to attend for the entire time but should expect to come for at least 1 hour to make a meaningful contribution. No experience is necessary, I'll be teaching how to edit Wikipedia, and librarian Alex Watkins will help people find resources
Event Image Free Cyanotype Photography Instruction

Colloquium, "Searching for axion and hidden photon dark matter with lumped element electromagnetic
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Physics Colloquium, "Searching for axion and hidden photon dark matter with lumped element electromagnetic resonators and SQUIDs"

Presented by: Kent Irwin, Stanford University

Abstract: About 85% of the matter in the universe is made up of an unknown "dark" component that is mostly non-baryonic. For several decades, searches for this mysterious substance has principally focused on one candidate particle: the WIMP. Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) have played an important role in these searches, which have successfully ruled out significant phase space for WIMP dark matter. Recently, there has been a surge in theoretical interest in ultra-light-field dark matter, including QCD axions (spin 0 bosons) and hidden photons (spin 1 bosons). The Dark Matter Radio (DM Radio) is a tunable superconducting high-Q lumped-element resonator also using SQUIDs for detection. I will discuss the motivation, status and prospects for the DM Radio experiment in searching for both axions and hidden photons, and the remarkable phase space that DM Radio will search over the next several years.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Topic: Balancing Cybersecurity Risk and Compliance
Event Image Fools For A Day: Shane Mauss, Adam Bradley, and Peter McGraw
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

“Rock, Rap, and Laughter”
So a stand-up comic, a literary scholar, and a behavioral scientist walk into a lecture hall, and a Western American historian hands them the question, "What’s so funny about pop music?" 

To hear the answer, along with an abundance of punch lines, plan to walk into that lecture hall yourself: Old Main Chapel, 6:30 p.m., March 8. 

Join comic Shane Mauss (From Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, Showtime, Comedy Central, Netflix and host of the science podcast “Here We Are”) and CU professors Adam Bradley (author of The Poetry of Pop and director of the Laboratory for Race & Popular Culture, the RAP Lab) and Peter McGraw (co-author of The Humor Code and director of the Humor Research Lab, HuRL) for an evening of learning and laughter. Why do some subjects shock us in speech but amuse us in song? What makes both Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West laugh? Through a blend of stand-up and science, music and comedy we’ll unlock some of the mysteries of two primal urges: shaking our butt and laughing out loud. 

This event is sponsored by the Center of the American West and its ongoing Humor Initiative, which explores the value of humor as the equivalent of WD-40 in friction-filled times, in collaboration with the RAP Lab and HuRL. 

The Humor Initiative is made possible by the generosity of Bill and Jane Reynolds.

Event Image The Rocky Horror Show, the musical
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

“The Rocky Horror Show” is an outrageous mashup of campy science fiction, Marvel-inspired characters, 1960s beach party jams and rock ’n’ roll music of every vintage. When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.

Note: CU-Boulder’s University Theatre will provide props for audience members. Please do not bring your own.
