| ||Anne Whiston Spirn exhibition — "The Eye is a Door"
8:00 AM - 8:00 PM
Main Campus - (WALK) Vol Walker Hall
An exhibition of work by Anne Whiston Spirn, titled “The Eye is a Door: Landscape, Photography, and the Art of Discovery,” will be on display Oct. 3-31 in the Fred and Mary Smith Exhibition Gallery in Vol Walker Hall on the University of Arkansas campus.
In addition, Spirn will present a lecture at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 24 in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 of Vol Walker Hall as part of the Fay Jones School of Architecture lecture series. A reception for the exhibition will be held at 5 p.m. Oct. 24 in the gallery.
Spirn, professor of landscape architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is an award-winning author, photographer, teacher and practitioner. Before coming to MIT, she taught at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania, where she was the chair for the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning.
Spirn views seeing as a way of knowing and photography as a way of thinking. Mindful photography allows the photographer to look and think, and to open a door between what can be seen directly and what is hidden and can only be imagined. In conjunction with her exhibition, Spirn’s lecture will explore this concept and will challenge the audience to look deeply at the surface of things and beyond to the stories landscapes tell, as well as the processes that shape human lives and communities, the earth itself and even the universe.
Spirn has written several books, including The Granite Garden: Urban Nature and Human Design (Basic Books, 1984), The Language of Landscape (Yale University Press, 1998), Daring to Look: Dorothea Lange’s Photographs and Reports from the Field (University of Chicago Press, 2008) and The Eye Is a Door: Landscape, Photography, and the Art of Discovery (2014). Her current book-in-progress, titled Top-Down/Bottom-Up: Restoring Nature and Rebuilding Community, describes research-in-action and lessons to build safer, healthier and more equitable and sustainable communities. Spirn received a Guggenheim fellowship for this book.
Since 1987, Spirn has been the director of the West Philadelphia Landscape Project, an award-winning program dedicated to restoring nature and rebuilding urban communities. The project was cited as a Model of Best Practice at a 1999 White House summit for leading scholars and artists in public life. In 2001, Spirn was awarded Japan’s International Cosmos Prize for “contributions to the harmonious coexistence of nature and mankind.”
The public is invited to attend the exhibition and the lecture, and admission is free. The lecture will have limited seating. Gallery hours for the exhibition are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

| ||Fine Arts Center Gallery Exhibit- Stationary Realms
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts
The University of Arkansas Department of Art presents Stationary Realms from September 8 – October 24 in the Fine Arts Center Gallery.
“The Department of Art at the University of Arkansas is thrilled to display the work of outstanding artists Jane Callister, Erin Harmon, Jennifer Steinkamp, and Mary Temple in the Stationary Realms exhibition,” said Marc Mitchell, curator and director of exhibitions for the Department. “While these acclaimed artists are all dealing with the landscape, their artworks address diverse themes within the genre.”
Stationary Realms, an exhibition curated by Cynthia Norse Thompson, addresses issues of place, loss, and beauty through disparate views of the landscape. Each artist in the exhibition utilizes scale and weight to explore both visual and conceptual implications of depicting the environment: Callister’s painterly landscapes deftly intertwine process and imagery; each painting celebrates a material investigation that generates fictional yet enchanting landscapes. Harmon creates carefully orchestrated artworks that emphasize a systematic order that is then applied to her landscapes; like a terrarium, every facet is scrutinized to the point where it becomes synthetic. Steinkamp’s video projections explore the relationship between actual and perceived space. Often focusing on trees and other natural phenomena, Steinkamp creates artworks that blur the line between observation and object. Known best for her installation work, Temple considers the boundaries between fact and fiction. Often presenting the viewer with a shadow on the wall or the silhouette of a plant, Temple creates environments that straddle the line between documentation and fabrication.

Among numerous awards, he received the Kodak Award for New Director of the Year in 2009.

Drew Krasner is a musician, composer, and writer of short stories who studied Jazz Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Krasner uses both his writing of short stories and compositions to narrate interpretations of his surrounding through piano, saxophone and text. During a recent residency at NES in Skagaströnd, Iceland, he began a project that will result in a musical and literary soundscape of Iceland from the vantage point of a loving outsider. While often participating in artist residencies and collaboration projects, Krasner continues to reside in Boston. James Kerr, whose gif artist name is “Scorpion Dagger”, uses a blend of cynicism, humor, social commentary and art history to create animated paper collages, After completing his commitment of creating at least one gif artwork every day for a year, James Kerr has continued the practice daily.

This episode of ART21 features the artists Tania Bruguera, Abraham Cruzvilegas and Wolfgang Laib. ART21 is supported by PBS and acts as a nonprofit global leader in art education, providing access to unique creation processes of today’s artists. Concepts and themes presented in the film “Legacy” will be discussed amongst a panel of educators, artists, and professionals from Northwest Arkansas immediately following the screening.

| ||"Resplendent" exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
Main Campus - (FNAR) Fine Arts
In Resplendent, the use of organic systems and visual sequences merge to explore the manner in which pattern may be realized. Delicate structures executed by each artist further investigate the relationship between material and image, while tantalizing the viewer with exquisite and often obsessive fabrication. Moreover, a landscape unique in the topography of material and form reveals a profound relationship with process— one that is both sensual and visceral.

| ||Steven L. Anderson Design Center Dedication & Vol Walker Hall Rededication
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
The Fay Jones School of Architecture will celebrate the completion of a construction project more than three years in the making on Thursday, Sept. 12. The renovated Vol Walker Hall and the new addition, the Steven L. Anderson Design Center, will be rededicated and dedicated, respectively, at a 4:30 p.m. on the west side of the addition.
The campus community is invited to join the school in this celebration.
Scheduled speakers include Chancellor G. David Gearhart; Ethel Goodstein-Murphree, interim dean of the Fay Jones School; Steven L. Anderson, president of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation; Katie Anderson, Steve Anderson’s daughter and a 2012 Fay Jones School graduate with a Bachelor of Interior Design; and Brandon Bibby, a fifth-year architecture student.
The 34,320-square-foot design center addition is made from limestone panels, steel, architectural concrete, Arkansas white oak and glass. Added to the 56,635 square feet in Vol Walker Hall, the total space in the building is now 90,955 square feet. According to current estimates, the project cost was a little more than $36.6 million. About 54 percent of that total went toward the renovation of Vol Walker Hall, with about 46 percent going toward the addition.
This state-of-the-art facility – which includes several design studios, a computer lab, a design shop, a lecture hall, a securable exhibition gallery, student and faculty lounge areas, and a green roof – will help enhance and expand the top-notch education already provided by the school’s faculty and administration.
Vol Walker Hall was built in 1935 as the university’s library. Since 1968, it has served as home to the architecture school, though some programs of the school have been located in other campus facilities during that time. The renovated historic building plus the significant addition allows the school, for the first time, to accommodate the faculty and students of all three disciplines – architecture, landscape architecture and interior design – along with support staff, in a shared space.
