Earth Stories is a collection of 24 extraordinary works by Studio Art quilt Associates’ (SAQA) studio artists in celebration of SAQA’s 25th anniversary. Each artist was asked to select a project they believe in and create a work of art embodying the positive, non-political goals of the project. Some of the artworks celebrate the quiet beauty of nature while others look at how human influences and technology are shaping the earth’s future. The works were selected by juror Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, of Ohio. Dr. Mazloomi is an artist, author, historian, and curator and is acknowledged as one of the most influential African American quilt historians in the United States.

Guest curated by Jakub Zdebik, this exhibition explores how art conveys information through data, text, the body through physical records, spatial information through maps and the self-reflexive intentions of the artists through plans.

Simon Jr. and others.

Midnight Madness is part of the practical-based portion of the MFA Playwriting Program consisting of the weekly, informal production of new work. It begins early in the week with a different writer from the program serving as the week’s producer. The producer selects the theme, style, or concept for the upcoming week’s production. Each writer must then write a three to five minute play based upon that theme, style or concept. Each play is written, cast, and rehearsed throughout the week in preparation for the Friday night, script-in-hand production presented before an audience.
Madness takes place Fridays at 11pm in Hahne Theater in Kantner Hall. The performances last about an hour and are free and open to the public.
