spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
You're invited to an early Mardi Gras celebration on Friday, Feb. 5, as The University of Akron hosts its fifth annual Hearts for Humanity Dinner Dance in the Student Union Ballroom.

Proceeds from the event will help defray the cost for UA students traveling to the Gulf Coast and Jamaica over Spring Break to assist in relief efforts. On past trips, students have taken on projects as wide ranging as installing drywall and floors, roofing and rebuilding athletic fields.

This year, in partnership with the national nonprofit group, Rebuilding Together, 110 UA students will be going to Acadiana and Calcasieu, near New Orleans, to help rebuild homes. A second group of approximately 28 UA students will travel to Jamaica to partner with Christian Service International Ministries to build a house or a school for a family or community in need.

Festivities at the Hearts for Humanity Dinner Dance will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a cash bar. A buffet featuring New Orleans-style food will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by dancing, oral and silent auctions, and the opportunity to have your photo taken with Zippy. The cost is $25 for UA family and friends, and $20 for UA students.

Reservations and/or donations may be made at the secured Web site at Hearts for Humanity or the Student Union information Desk. Major credit cards will be accepted. Or, you can make a reservation with cash or your Zip Card at Rob's Café. The deadline for reservations is Tuesday, Feb. 2. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Sponsors of the event are University administration, Faculty Senate and Akron-AAUP. For more information, please call Leslie Wagner in the University College Dean's office at ext. 7908.

The Myers School of Art at The University of Akron presents a large-scale installation by New Jersey City University Art Department Chair Herb Rosenberg. The exhibition will take place at the Emily Davis Gallery, the upper gallery of which will be transformed by twelve nine-foot aluminum columns on wooden bases.

Functioning as an environmental awakening, these sculptures allow gallery visitors to meander through a metal forest, one that parallels those ancient groves of the past. The silent histories housed in ancient forests around the world are stirred by sublime sound-compositions created by the artist’s son, Andrew Rosenberg.

Exhibition dates: Tuesday, January 19 - Saturday, February 27, 2010

Reception with Artist: TBA

Come wander through the forest at The University of Akron’s Emily Davis Gallery. For more detailed information, please contact Vanessa Bordo, graduate assistant to the gallery. Rod Bengston, gallery director, may be reached at (330) 972-5950.

The Myers School is located at 150 E. Exchange Street in Akron, with gallery hours of Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday 10am to 5pm and Wednesday and Thursday, 10am to 9pm. University art galleries and lecture events are open to the public and admission is always free.

The Myers School of Art Emily Davis Gallery announces:
Collider 2: Camille Utterback

The Myers School of Art at The University of Akron will hold its second Collider exhibition from January 19 to February 27, 2010.

The exhibition will take place in the lower gallery of the Myers School’s Emily Davis Gallery.

A 2009 winner of the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, featured artist Camille Utterback is a pioneering artist and programmer in the field of interactive installation.

In addition to the gallery exhibition, Collider events include a residency program with the artist.

Public Lecture & Artist Reception: Wednesday, January 27, 6:30pm, Folk Hall Auditorium

Artist in Residency: Monday, January 25-Wednesday, January 27, 2010

After a young, middle class couple moves into what seems like a typical suburban ‘starter’ house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that seems to be demonic. It is certainly most active in the middle of the night – especially when they sleep – where the horrific presence is captured on their video camera.
