Special Exhibition: ‘Faculty Artists from IU’s Hope School of Fine Arts’

Focalpoint: Personal Objects: Art from Eastern and Southern Africa
January 14–May 11, 2014 Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, Focalpoint, third floor From jewelry and headdresses to household objects such as containers, headrests, and spoons, the art of eastern and southern Africa for the most part is intimately connected with the individual. Though these regions of Africa do not have the large numbers of masks and figural sculpture for which western and central Africa are known, the personal objects found there frequently reflect the deep cultural significances and attention to form and detail seen elsewhere on the continent. This installation has been organized to coincide with the A352/A552, Art of Eastern and Southern Africa, a course being taught during the spring 2014 semester in the Department of the History of Art.

New in the Galleries: ‘Max Beckmann’s Woodcuts’
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Doris Steinmetz Kellett Endowed Gallery of Twentieth-Century Art, first floor
February 4–June 22, 2014
Although the German Expressionist artist Max Beckmann was a prolific graphic artist (producing 374 prints during his lifetime), he created fewer than 20 woodcuts. Most were produced during the 1920s, when Germany was experiencing a revival of interest in the medium. Seven prints from this period will be featured in this installation.

The Ryder presents: Oscar Short Film Festival

05:30 pm
Various venues: Fine Arts, Woodburn Hall, Bear's Place, Buskirk-Chumley, and the Back Door

The Ryder presents a series of Oscar-nominated short films, to be shown at various Bloomington venues from February 21 until March 2.

Short films, like short stories, are often overlooked. The best short subjects have all of the power, scope and resonance of a feature-length film. We are screening the best of the best: 3 programs (one devoted to animation, one to live-action and the third to documentaries) featuring all 15 Oscar nominees. This is your chance to see the films before the Awards show

Each program will be shown on campus at Fine Arts, Woodburn Hall, as well as at Bear’s Place and the Back Door. At these venues, each program is $5 but for $10 you can buy an Oscar Pass admitting you to all three programs (on different nights, on different weekends). The programs are not rated but if they were, the Animation program would be rated PG – one of the animated films is a bit dark, but certainly no darker than the average superhero movie. It’s kid-friendly for most kids. And there are Saturday matinees for the Animation program.

See website for the full program of short films.
