Archaeological Dig Community Volunteer Days

09:00 am to 12:00 pm
Wylie House Museum
https://libraries.indiana.edu/archaeological-dig-community-volunteer-days

Curious about archaeology?! Interested in local Bloomington history?! This opportunity may be for you! Join IU archaeologists and their field school students for three hours of involvement with a historic site archaeology project.

Indiana University’s Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Wylie House Museum join together for a special project investigating our local Hoosier cultural heritage as part of IU’s Bicentennial celebration. Wylie House Museum is the 1835 house of IU’s first president Andrew Wylie and is IU’s oldest property. For four weeks this summer, IU students will learn archaeological field methods while searching for two buried garden facilities dating to 1859. You’re invited to join them for a few hours. Spaces are limited. Ages 18 & up.

There are four volunteer day opportunities throughout the month of June: Friday mornings, 9am-noon. To ensure that the maximum number of interested parties are able to participate, we kindly request that you register for just one session.

Questions? Contact Carey Beam, Director of the Wylie House Museum or Melody Pope, Curator of Collections, Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology.

“Down on The Farm”, Paintings by Monique Cagle and a mini show of Nudes by Sven Frokjaer-Jensen

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Friday, June 22nd, beginning at 6:00p.m.The Venue will host as our primary show, a reception for an Exhibition of Paintings by Monique Cagle.
Monique lives, works, and creates great art in Brown County, Indiana. In our judgement, Monique is the heir apparent to T.C. Steele et al, and carries forward the tradition of great Brown County landscapes and outdoor nature scenes. Monique lives on a Brown County farm, paints, makes fine jewelry, and creates all things cat art.
For this exhibition, Monique has produced acrylic, gallery wrapped paintings, focusing on domestic farm animals. These paintings have their own vitality and life, capturing the natural energy of the animals, which allows the viewer to see and sense them in a very special and profound way. As you view them close your eyes, and you will smell and hear them as well.
This will be our feature show for the month of June.
In addition, we will unveil a collection of small nudes in oil and charcoal, by the well known Danish artist, Sven Frokjear-Jensen. Forming an interesting contrast, these nudes are painterly, tasteful, and display Sven’s appreciation of the variety of the human body.

Happy Feet

06:30 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/happy-feet/

In the cold land of Antarctica, each Emperor Penguin expresses love with an individual “heartsong” that reflects their true nature. Misfit Mumble cannot sing, but instead has an extraordinary talent to tap dance with almost magical energy and expression. His colony blames the young penguin’s unorthodox ways for the lean fishing that threatens them all so Mumble and his true friends set out to find the true cause of the famine. Through many trials and perils, Mumble learns many things about his frozen world, including that his toe tapping talent may be what he needs to save his people.

Released in 2006, Happy Feet won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature and was honored as one of the Top Ten Best Films of the Year by the American Film Institute Awards.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30, and the event begins at 7pm with a tap dance lesson by Mary Sue Hosey from the Dance Center before the film starts rolling.
