  • How to dispose of heavy items
  • July 16, 2018

    Faculty and staff who need to dispose of books, loose paper and other potentially heavy items are asked to use the blue recycling bins on each floor of the building or the small dumpster located on the ground floor by the elevators. Placing these items in the regular trash bins in offices and around the building makes it very difficult for our custodians to empty them. Thank you!

  • Gentrified Experiences Exhibition Reception – Cameron Gray
  • 12:00 pm

    Public reception for Gentrified Experiences, an exhibition of new work by ISU integrated visual arts graduate student Cameron Gray.

    Artist’s Statement

    Experiences are moments in our lives that dictate how we see the world. They are moments that inform our decisions and perceptions on subjects around us. But what happens when you don’t have a choice of your experiences? That being a certain complexion, you must adapt into situations because there aren’t any other avenues? The instances where low-income families are pushed out of their neighborhoods so they could make it more accessible for people who are not of the community.

    We are taking it back! Gentrified Experiences will do exactly what the big business and community leaders have done to dismantle neighborhoods of color for their own interest, instead of asking people how they would improve their own communities. This exhibition is for the people directly affected by the power of gentrification. Since they took something from us, we are going to regentrify their area — taking an experience synonymous with black culture to a predominantly white area. I’m opening myself up to give people insight into what I appreciate and what I love about black culture so that they can understand us better and dissolve the differences that are placed upon us because of the perpetuation of stereotypes.

    GoFundMe Fundraiser

    Gray has set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds for an event to bring the Des Moines/Ames community together to have a true conversation about the racial climate in our communities and political sphere in hopes of finding a solution for change. He wants to show the power of art to bring communities together and to prove that change is possible when we work together. You can donate online.

  • Fabricated: Reception for Exhibition by Dan Nutt
  • 04:00 pm

    Opening reception for Fabricated, an exhibition of textile-based work by Daniel J. Nutt exploring the tension between identity and the material shell we wear. Nutt is an incoming integrated visual arts graduate student from Des Moines. The show is on display July 24-29 at the ISU Design on Main Gallery.
