Return your Census forms: It benefits all of us!
spacer image

spacer image
The 2010 U.S. Census has started, and with it, your chance to “Be Counted.”  

The U.S. Postal Service is now delivering census forms to students in off-campus housing, including sorority and fraternity houses. Residence hall students will receive census forms in early April. 

It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and you can make a big difference for UA and the Akron area. Many decisions are based on census data, including federal and state funding for tuition and loan programs and research projects, where employers will travel to recruit new employees and fair-market rents.

From March 19 to April 19, Questionnaire Assistance Centers will be open Monday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m. in the Polsky Building, Student Union and Bierce Library. For more information, visit Be Counted.

Philosophy Club event: 'The Moral Superiority of Capitalism' March 23
5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
spacer image

spacer image
spacer image
The recent instability of the global economy has spurned skepticism about the current system. A recent Rasmussen poll reports that only 53% of Americans believe that capitalism is better than socialism. Michael Moore recently came out with a film titled, "Capitalism: A Love Story," which is critical of the capitalist system.

Philosophy Club President Nevin Johnson will argue that the current trend is wrongheaded, and that the capitalist system is the best economic arrangement. Issues addressed will include central-planning socialism, market socialism, and the Marxist labor theory of value.

The meeting will take place at 5 PM in the Student Union room 316 on March 23rd.

March 15 – April 17, 2010: Small sculptures focus of Shoebox Exhibition at the UA Myers School of Art Emily Davis Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 24, 4:30 p.m.
Folk Hall Atrium
Free and open to the public

GUEST LECTURER: Wednesday, March 24, 6:00 p.m.
Folk Hall Auditorium
Stephen Litchfield
UA Senior Lecturer, Sculptor

HOURS AND ADMISSION: MTFS 10-5, WTh 10-9
The Emily Davis Gallery is closed Sundays,university holidays.
Admission is always free.

The 10th International Shoebox Sculpture Exhibition features works by 81 artists from more than 14 countries. Following the March 24th reception, Stephen Litchfield will discuss the exhibition. Litchfield is a senior lecturer at The University of Akron and an assistant professor at Kent State University. The exhibition, lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

Responding to the cumbersome nature of many sculpture exhibitions, professors at the University of Hawaii developed an exhibition of small-scale pieces to encourage ease of handling and broader audience exposure to this contemporary and striking art form. The diminutive sculptures in the exhibition demonstrate how artists have handled the challenges of space and scale dictated by the size of an ordinary shoebox. To create their sculptures, the artists have used almost every imaginable medium, ranging from steel and wood to found objects and human hair.

The exhibition is sponsored by the University of Hawaii Department of Art and Art History and the College of Arts and Humanities and supported by grants from the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts through appropriations from the Legislature of the State of Hawaii and by the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Gulab and Indru Watumull Grant for Museum Studies in the Arts.
