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.

University Hospitals

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.

Three Michigan Architects: Part 2—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.

Research Through Making

A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning
Time:
3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location:
Off Campus Location
Room:
Liberty Gallery, 305 W. Liberty St

Historically, research and creative practice have been constructed as "opposites." This is not an unusual struggle in architecture schools, particularly in the context of a research university. This perceived tension between design and research is indicative of age-old anxieties within the architecture field to understand its nature as an "applied art." Design can be a purely creative activity not unlike creative practices in music and art. In other cases, design can be a purely problem solving activity, not unlike research in engineering and industrial production.

In its fifth year, University of Michigan Taubman College's Research Through Making (RTM) Program provides seed funding for faculty research, worked on by faculty, students and interdisciplinary experts. The exhibition presents tangible results of their collaborative work. This year's projects:

Opera Studio “Green Opera” Presentation

Event Type:
Performance
Sponsor:
School of Music, Theatre & Dance
Time:
8:00 pm
Location:
Walgreen Drama Center
Room:
Stamps Auditorium

Green operas are produced with a focus on minimizing the resources required to produce a theatrical performance by using recycled materials for scenery and costumes, projected scenic elements, LED lights and other measures which can reduce the carbon footprint of a typical production by as much as 95%. The works themselves also focus on environmental themes: Rusalka’s Tale is a one act adaptation of the Dvorak opera presented in English, and L’enfant et les Sortileges by Maurice Ravel, presented in French with English supertitles both have plots that lend themselves to interpretations that illuminate the delicate relationship between man and nature. Both works are produced and directed by Robert Swedberg, collaborating with Timothy Cheek and Steven McGhee, Music Directors

Dustbowl Revival

Dustbowl Revival
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

The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues, and the hot swing of the 1930’s to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their inspired live sets, The Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show meeting Louis Armstrong’s Hot Seven Band in New Orleans or Bob Dylan and Fats Waller jamming with Mumford & Sons on a front porch in 1938. Growing steadily from a small string band playing up and down the West Coast (hundreds shows in the last two years), DBR has blossomed into a traveling collective featuring instrumentation that often includes fiddle, mandolin, trombone, clarinet, trumpet, banjo, accordion, tuba, pedal steel, drums, guitars, a bass made from a canoe oar, harmonica, and plenty of washboard and kazoo for good luck.
