World Creativity & Innovation Week

to 1366416000
Bloomington, IN
http://bloomington.wciw.org

World Creativity and Innovation Week is an international initiative to promote Creativity as an essential and universal life skill. And in terms of Creativity, this is not just limited to fine and performing arts, but also includes creative problem solving, open thought and strategy, and idea generating. We all have the ability to be creative in our everyday lives, from figuring out how to get the kids to school in the morning, to meeting a task deadline. Everyone is born creative, however, at times our society and our own lack of confidence can place restraints on this essential and natural skill.

Hosted by Creative Indiana, WCIW will take place in Bloomington from April 15-21. This is an opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate its creative energy and potential. Bloomington has long been heralded for its arts community, as well as innovative and forward thinking, from local businesses to our prestigious Indiana University. Join the call to showcase our creative vibe by participating in the local WCIW movement!

See our list of events for WCIW events in Bloomington, and add your own at our website http://bloomington.wciw.org. A few organizations who have already committed involvement include My Sister’s Closet, The Tailored Fit, Bloominglabs, Thrive Health & Wellbeing, and more!

If you would like to get involved and/or make a suggestion, please contact me at [email protected] or (812) 219-4493.

http://www.artmuseum.iu.edu/iuam_home.php

Paul Strand’s “Street People”
Continuing through May 5, 2013

Paul Strand’s revolutionary photographs, published in the final double-issue of Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work, shocked the art world not only with their unadulterated approach to the medium, but also with their gritty, realistic subject matter. This installation features three close-up portraits of some of the “invisible” beggars, hackers, and passersby found on New York City’s sidewalks.

“The Many Faces of a Master”
Continuing through May 5, 2013

Pablo Picasso (1888–1975) was not only one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, but he was also one of the most recognizable. The IU Art Museum has a large collection of portraits of artists. This installation features several photographs of Picasso at work or play by Lucien Clerque, Robert Capa, and Brassaï.

Contemporary Explorations: Reviewing Nature in the 1980s
February 4‒May 19, 2013

Drawn from the museum’s collection of works by graduates of IU’s fine arts department (now the Hope School of Fine Arts), this installation examines the artists’ interpretations of the natural world. Reviewing Nature takes a look at the balance sought between structural composition and the role nature plays in co-defining the space we both share. This installation was organized by Emily Wood, graduate assistant for Western art after 1800 at the IU Art Museum.

New in the Galleries: Breaking the Gilded Ceiling, Women Artists of the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries
March 5-August 25, 2013

This installation will feature women artists—some former artist’s models, some wives and mothers, and some trailblazers—who worked in a variety of media. Included will be work by photographers Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Laura Adams Armer, as well as prints and drawings by Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon, Gwen John, and Käthe Kollwitz.

Three Remarkable Women: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Margaret Chinnery, and Félicité de Genlis
March 23-September 1, 2013

The IU Art Museum will premiere a focused exhibition featuring Vigée Le Brun’s Portrait of Mrs. Chinnery (1803) and selected materials from the Lilly library. The exhibition presents an unusually rich opportunity to use a single artwork as a lens for an interdisciplinary study of the history, politics, art, literature, and music of its time.

Exhibits at the Monroe County History Center

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
Monroe County History Center (202 E. 6th St.)
http://monroehistory.org/

“Civil Rights in Monroe County”

This exhibit at the Monroe County History Center focuses on the Civil Rights Movement and Monroe County’s role in it.

The Civil Rights movements, from the early 1900s to the late 1980s, are an important part of Monroe County history. Indiana University served as a stage for students to make change and voice their rights as African Americans, women and young adults making sense of the world around them. The exhibit follows individuals who had a direct impact in making change in the community and on campus, and the major demonstrations happening at the time.

Exhibit runs until April 27.

 

“Walking Through Gardens”

An exhibition of garden-inspired fiber art by local artist Martina Celerin hanging at the Monroe County History Center.
