The Arboreal Me by Rebecca Prato

12:00 pm to 04:00 pm
Gather :handmade shoppe & Co:, 101 W Kirkwood Ave Suite 112
http://gathershoppe.com

A self-portrait need not encompass traditional ideas- one can even break away from depicting one’s face, the element typically associated with self-portraits; in my photography the tree has become symbolic of myself which has led me to realize I am creating “self-portrayals” that allow me to create pieces that are as diverse as I am.

Exhibit runs until October 2.

Shoreline cleanup planned for Monroe Lake, volunteers needed for Sep. 7

A summer full of fun and recreation at Monroe Lake creates more than memories; it also results in a lot of trash!

100 volunteers are needed to help with a large shoreline cleanup at Monroe Lake on Sunday, September 7 to help restore the lakeshore to an inviting habitat for both people and wildlife.

This particular cleanup focuses on more remote areas of the shoreline, which are difficult to reach by land. Boats will be used to transport volunteers and haul out the trash.

The cleanup begins at 1:30 p.m. and concludes with a free cookout for all volunteers at 5:30 p.m. All volunteers must be at least 10 years old; ages 10 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration is required by September 3. You can sign up online at http://bit.ly/MonroeCleanup2014. Questions should be directed to the Paynetown Activity Center at 812-837-9967 or [email protected].

The cleanup is jointly sponsored by Monroe Lake, Monroe County Public Works, Hoosier National Forest, Army Corps of Engineers, and the City of Bloomington, with support from the Lake Monroe Boat Rental and Lake Monroe Marina.

IU Cinema: “God Loves Uganda” film

03:00 pm to 04:25 pm
IU Cinema, 1213 E. 7th St.
http://www.cinema.indiana.edu/?post_type=film&p=7009

God Loves Uganda is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African cultures with values imported from America’s Christian Right. The film follows American and Ugandan religious leaders fighting “sexual immorality” (homosexuality) and missionaries trying to convince Ugandans to follow Biblical law. Filmmaker Roger Ross Williams exposes the missionary movement in Uganda as an outgrowth of Africa’s colonialist past and a 21st century crusade to recreate a continent of people in the image and likeness of America’s most extreme fundamentalists. (2K DCP presentation)

Sponsored by the, GLBT Student Support Services, Office of Diversity Education, a unit of the Office of Diversity, Equity, & Multicultural Affairs, Commission on Multicultural Understanding, Black Film Center/Archive, and IU Cinema.

IU Cinema: “Blood Simple” film

06:30 pm to 08:10 pm
IU Cinema, 1213 E. 7th St.

With the title derived from a Dashiell Hammett novel, the Coen Brothers’ debut feature begins with a jealous bar owner who lives deep in the heart of Texas who hires a private eye to kill his wife and her lover. The sleazy hit man double-crosses the husband, but getting away with ‘the perfect crime’ proves not to be as simple as it seems. Blood Simple uncoils its film noir plot with audacious style, dense atmosphere, and blood-curdling twists. Print provided courtesy of the American Genre Film Archive. (35mm presentation)
