8ft x 5ft Assorted Wood
Studio Art majors, Valerie Pena, Dale Wolfe, and Gelacia Torivio, created a public sculpture in Advanced 3-Dimensional Topics class, to be placed outside of the new Arts and Humanities building.
They took on this challenge to demonstrate learning about site-specific artwork in Professor Joyce Kohl’s ART 4300 course. They felt that a site-specific sculpture would bring a focal point to the
brand-new building, while also keeping a close tie with the neighboring Visual Arts building.
The art piece consists of various types of wood, which give the sculpture its unique appearance. The students re-purposed each piece of wood, stained it, and created countless patterns so the public sculpture had an abstract form. This technique allows the artwork to blend in with its natural surroundings because it is placed near wood-chips and trees located outside the Arts and Humanities structure.
Dr. Jackie Kegley, Professor of Philosophy gave a keynote address, "Reconciling Individual/Group Rights and Community Rights" during a conference on Canadian Philosophy at the University of New Brunswick, Canada on November 26th.
Dr. Lena Taub Robles spoke at the CSUB Faculty Day about her participation at the event " Marie Chauvet/Haiti: Chauvet’s Theatres of Revolt," held at CUNY's Martin Segal Theatre Center in October 2016 to celebrate the 100th birthday of Haitian author Marie Vieux Chauvet. Born in Haiti in 1916, Chauvet was forced into exile during the Duvalier dictatorship and her family chose to remove all her work from the public. She continued to write in exile, but Chauvet's work remained inaccessible for many years.
Chauvet's work has garnered much critical attention in recent years and much of her novels and theatre have been republished. Benin-born playwright Jose Pliya adapted Chauvet's novel Amour, Colère et Folie for the theatre and Lena translated the play "Amour," which was represented at the centenary celebration. Lena is also co-editing a critical volume following the event, entitled Marie Vieux Chauvet’s Theatres of Revolt: Action, Aesthetics, and Adaptation.
