Happenings @ Other Colleges

Bard College

On May 3rd, New York’s Bard College will host a “National Climate Seminar: US Climate Science, Challenges, and Opportunities,” by Penn State Atmospheric Science Professor Michael Mann. Mann was part of a collaboration that won a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, was awarded a 2012 Hans Oeschger Medal from the European Geosciences Union, and received the National Conservation Achievement Award for Science from the National Wildlife Federation in 2013. Also a published author, Mann’s latest is a satire, The Madhouse Effect. Regarding the environment, Mann stated Trump will “basically take us backwards, back towards our dependence on fossil fuels at a time when the rest of the world is moving ahead and understands that we need to get off fossil fuels.” For info about this important ecological seminar, go to:

Carleton College

May 3 – 7 Minnesota’s Carleton College displays an exhibit by nine Irish photographers. This is sponsored by a grant from Culture Ireland, which promotes Irish arts. The nine artists involved will be Gary Coyle, Martin Cregg, David Farrell, Paul Gaffney, Anthony Haughey, Miriam O’Connor, Jill Quigley, Anna Rackard and Ruby Wallis. The exhibit will show the beauty of Ireland, while also detailing rural life from cottages to wildlife. In the face of the modern age, there is still a nostalgia for the old times, which each artist captures in representing the country.

University of Missouri 

Exploring the Graeco-Roman world centuries ago, the exhibition “Romance in Ruins” takes place on May 9. The Graeco-Roman period, from 332 BC -395 AD, marked a time when Egypt was ruled by the Persians and their leader Alexander the Great. The exhibition will detail how works of this period still capture aesthetic appeal, and how they brought so much inspiration to art and architecture for those who came after. The exhibit will focus especially on influences during the time period between the 18th and 20th centuries.

There will also be an open mic session to follow, where everyone is invited to read.
