4,000 Years for Choice

From the exhibition, "4,000 Years for Choice: A Graphic Guide to Reproductive Ju

A Graphic Guide to Reproductive Justice

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsors:
Institute for Research on Women and Gender
Women's Studies Department
Time:
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Lane Hall
Room:
Lane Hall Gallery

This exhibition combines two projects by graphic designer Heather Ault. "4,000 Years for Choice" is an exhibition of posters about the age-old practice of abortion and contraception as a means to reclaim reproductive freedom as a deeply personal and life-sustaining act existing throughout all of human history. The "Reproductive Roots" series shines a bright light on the many voices from the abortion care and reproductive justice movements, using vividly designed social media graphics and notecards to inspire conversations from a breadth of perspectives.

Heather Ault is a visual artist, pro-choice activist, and independent scholar creating artwork to shift conversations about reproductive rights and justice. She uses vibrant graphics, affirmative language, and historical accounts to transform ugly discord into visual narratives that are beautiful and empowering.

The exhibition is presented by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Women's Studies Department. It is cosponsored by the Program for Sexual Rights and Reproductive Justice, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

The exhibition is closed weekends and university holidays.

Gifts of Art presents Paperweights & Studio Glass

UM-Dearborn Permanent Art Collection

UM-Dearborn Permanent Art Collection

Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
Gifts of Art
Time:
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Cancer Center
Room:
Gifts of Art Gallery — Level B2.

The American studio glass movement started in 1962 with glass workshops held at the Toledo Museum of Art. The workshops, taught by Harvey Littleton along with scientist Dominick Labino, introduced a small furnace built for working glass that made it possible for artists to work in independent studios. The studio glass movement quickly spread north to Michigan, and in 1982, a decision was made that studio glass would be the focus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn permanent art collection, which is housed at the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery. This exhibition is a portion of that collection, spotlighting studio glass art by major artists working in the medium, including Dominick Labino, Marvin Lipofsky and Richard Ritter.

Time:
8:00 am - 8:00 pm
Location:
University Hospitals
Room:
Gifts of Art Gallery — Main Corridor, Floor 2.

Having raised his two children near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Ken Scott has found much inspiration there. A self-taught photographer, he started out with a 35mm camera, heavy tripod, either a 24 or 105 mm lens, and a slow slide film (ASA 50). He is now climbing the digital ladder! Scott’s photography is the result of 20+ years of "lots of patience, recognizing the right place at the right time, but not necessarily for the intended image…" He shoots photographs around Leelanau County, Michigan and stitches multiple images together to create vistas beyond what a single image can show.

9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
202 S. Thayer
Room:
Institute for the Humanities Gallery, 1010

Chris Hyndman’s installation, “No-Touching Zone,” presents exciting new paintings that prompt us to think about the active surface of images in an age of digital saturation. These highly inventive textured and patterned pictorial surfaces explore the way we see things, from the inside and outside of paintings. They also allude to Hyndman’s hard to extrapolate personal experience of being a Canadian living in the United States.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2—Robert Metcalf

Robert Metcalf
Event Type:
Exhibition
Sponsor:
University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA)
Time:
11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location:
Museum of Art
Room:
N/A

Robert Metcalf’s domestic and commercial buildings represent some of the most important and recognizable modern architecture in Michigan. Born in 1923, Metcalf is a native of Ohio. He began his education at the University of Michigan in 1941 but his studies were halted during World War II. After serving in Europe, Metcalf returned to Ann Arbor and finished his degree in 1950. Upon graduation, he worked as an apprentice to George B. Brigham and began teaching Architecture at the University of Michigan. Metcalf began his own practice in 1953 and completed over 120 projects Ann Arbor and the Detroit Metro area. This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

This exhibition presents 13 domestic projects that span his six-decade-long career from 1953-2008, highlighting his straightforward design aesthetic, featuring many of his iconic flat-roofed houses. Each project selected exemplifies Metcalf’s mid-century modern architectural vocabulary that results in functional, minimalist spaces for living.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2–Metcalf is the second in a series of three consecutive exhibitions, with subsequent presentation of domestic work by George Brigham (July 19–October 12, 2014). Part 1 of the series presented the work of David Osler (December 21, 2013–March 30, 2013). The series will culminate in Fall 2014 with a symposium, as well as the publication of Three Michigan Architects: Osler, Metcalf, and Brigham—both of which will explore the importance of this circle of Ann Arbor-based architects, situating their regional body of domestic work into the larger context of modern architecture in the U.S. that developed on the East Coast and West Coast from the 1930s–1980s.

Duderstadt Center (Media Union)
Room:
Duderstadt Gallery

Maxx Passion and Brittany Whitmoyer Gallery Show In an effort to address the ephemeral nature of dance, Maxx Passion and Britt Whitmoyer will co-present their MFA thesis projects as a weeklong installation in the Duderstadt Gallery where the audience can enter and exit the space daily. In Passion’s pre-made/re-made, her dance work lives on the screen, and among photographs, sculptures and soundscapes made by a collaborative web of artists. Whitmoyer’s The Bones of Your Beliefs is an exploration into the relationship between dance, film and audience, and what happens when they intersect. How does an audience respond to dance work made for the screen, and how much do the senses of our eyes and ears play a role in our perception? 12pm-6pm daily

Horse Feathers

Horse Feathers
Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO)
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
The Ark, 316 S. Main, Ann Arbor, MI

Horse Feathers is the creation of Justin Ringle, who grew up in Lewiston, Idaho. The space, beauty, and nonconformist orientation of the West seem to be reflected in his spare, completely original sound that mixes minimalist economy with hints of classic country music and "Nebraska"-era Springsteen. Moving to Portland, Justin joined forces with other musicians to create one of the most talked-about groups in the Northwest. He named the band after a grandfather's favorite expression because it seemed to describe his music: things that seemingly can't exist together are spun into a magical fusion. Says Matt Fink of Paste: "Horse Feathers constructs music out of fragile whispers and half-remembered dreams, eagerly filling in the gaps between Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine on the American indie-folk continuum."
