Mythology, a striking color palette and a dark, dreamlike tone — all an expression of an artist’s personal history — come together when Rick Bartow: Things You Know But Cannot Explain opens at Aurora University’s Schingoethe Center on Tuesday, January 23, from 5-6:30 p.m.. The exhibition, which runs through April 13, features some 120 paintings, sculptures and drawings in a retrospective of the 40-year career of a culturally important Native American artist.
Next week, students will explore topics of equality, inclusion and intolerance as part of a special program honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
It’s opera on stage this week in Perry Theatre, which will be a wonderful warm up for the Christmas concert in Crimi Auditorium later in December.
Love is in the air at Perry Theatre. “Twelfth Night,” a wise, wacky and romantic play, will be presented on the Aurora University campus November 10–11 and 15–18, at 7:30 p.m.
The Aurora University community is seeing what 12 students have spotted with their digital cameras in the exhibition, “The Art of Observation,” currently on display in Phillips Library. The images, taken in the Introduction to Digital Photography course, explore a range of subject matter and approaches to picture making.
