Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
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.

Physics Colloquium, "Building a Proportional Cell: Lessons from Physics"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Jané Kondev, Brandeis University

Abstract: The inside of a living cell is spatially organized into different functional structures called organelles. For example, the nucleus is a membrane bound compartment that contains the cell's DNA, while the cytoskeleton is made up of dynamic protein fibers which allow cells to move and change shape.
Gulliver noticed 140 years ago that the size of the cell's nucleus is proportional to the size of the cell. Similar observations have been made about other micron-sale structures within the cell. These experiments suggest that cells measure and control the size of their organelles, and they raise a simple question: How does the cell establish a micron-scale ruler with nothing more at its disposal than nanometer-sized molecules that diffuse around the cell and on occasion bump into each other? In this talk I will describe quantitative experiments and related theory that are beginning to reveal general principles of how cells control the size of their organelles.

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

Event Image From the Ashes: The Lost History of Aztec Ruins
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Tucked into the northwest corner of New Mexico stands a little-known archaeological site with World Heritage status. Aztec Ruins is a 900-year old city-scape made up of exceptionally well-preserved great stone structures, massive roads, small houses, and enigmatic mounds. Thoroughly excavated by CU’s own Earl Morris a century ago, Aztec nevertheless still has tales to tell. Erin Baxter presents how recent research into Morris’ museum archive is radicalizing our views of Aztec. We now know it as the once-capital of Southwestern civilization which rose and fell in an explosion of political upheaval, aberrant behavior, violence and fire. This talk will explore unpublished diaries, letters, photos, and maps that give tantalizing clues to Aztec’s complex history and reveals the emergence of social inequality, the role of violence and conflict, and the development of larger scales of political organization during one of the most important chapters in Ancestral Pueblo history.
