"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

"Jack Balas: Against the Grain – Men, Maps, and Other Incorrections"

Monday, August 19, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, October 5, 2019 (All day)

The artist will present a lecture titled "Bro-sure: A Brief Look at the Art of Jack Balas" on Wednesday, August 28, at 7 p.m. in KAB 111. An opening reception will follow.  Balas is a Colorado-based artist specializing in figurative paintings and drawings in oil and watercolor. For the last 15 years, he has focused on depictions of the male figure, presenting them in a variety of personal and societal scenarios that project them far beyond the traditional role of portraiture. Employing painted language in the form of titles, phrases, and paragraph-stories, the works take on the strategies of annotated documents, maps and calendars, and yet by their very depiction the men found in them also take on the politics of visibility – queer visibility and male visibility in general. All events are free and open to the public.

Constitution Day Address: Separate and Unequal

Constitution Day Address: Separate and Unequal

Monday, September 16, 2019 - 7:00 pm

Investigative journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones will deliver the 2019 Constitution Day address, titled "Separate and Unequal: Considering Modern Day Segregation and the American Constitution." 

Free, no tickets required.

Ms. Hannah-Jones, a Waterloo native, covers racial injustice for the New York Times Magazine and has spent years chronicling the way official policy has created—and maintains—racial segregation in housing and schools. Her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. She has written extensively on the history of racism, school resegregation, and the disarray of hundreds of desegregation orders, as well as the decades-long failure of the federal government to enforce the landmark 1968 Fair Housing Act. She is currently writing a book on school segregation called The Problem We All Live With, to be published on the One World imprint of Penguin/Random House. In 2017 she was named a McArthur Genius Grant Fellow.

This promises to be an engaging event that challenges us to consider whether we are living up to our constitutional commitment to equal protection of the laws. We hope it will spark meaningful conversations on campus and in the Cedar Falls-Waterloo community.

Sponsored by the American Democracy Project, Office of the Provost and Office of the President

Location: Great Hall, GBPAC
