Students, faculty, staff and the greater community are invited to screenings of landmark films in recent cinema history that tackle challenging themes in the humanities, arts and sciences. The films will be followed by a short discussion on the overall themes and subject matter of each film. Popcorn and beverages will be provided at each screening.
Students, faculty, staff, community members and other interested stakeholders are invited to Access4All, a symposium and interactive presentation space focused on accessibility solutions.
Nickolai Walko, a graduate of the VCU School of the Arts, has developed a unique and eye-catching form of image-making that hybridizes classical drawing and pop art. After placing a layer of black masking tape on a brightly colored panel or wall, covering the surface from edge to edge, he draws elaborate designs, often anatomical, directly on the tape and then, using an X-Acto blade, meticulously cuts out sections of the tape to create a strong-contrast image. Finally, to prevent tape decay, he sprays the work with a polyurethane coating. Given his anatomical subjects, Walko appropriately likens his elaborate process to a medical operation, with the tape serving as skin and the removing of the tape representing the exposed anatomy. At this show at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, he showcases his anatomical creations, some of which have been inspired by materials from the library collection.
"I AM 400" is a collection of paintings by Richmond-based father and son artists, Jerome and Jeromyah Jones. The works center around Africans before being brought to the shores of America, the 400 years of the African experience in America and solutions for a better future. These artists intend for their work to create conversations and compel communities to learn from history and be history in the making.
