Event Image "Over There: The Berlin Wall in German Comics" Lecture
5:00 PM - 6:15 PM

Over There: The Berlin Wall in German Comics: To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Dr. Brett Sterling, Visiting Assistant Professor of German, will be giving a lecture on representations of the Wall and life in the German Democratic Republic in recent German-language comics. The Berlin Wall is an enduring symbol of the Cold War and of the 45 years of German division. Attempts to portray the Wall and the former GDR in comics largely follow one of two paths: the path of documentary or the path of memory. Dr. Sterling's talk will introduce several recent German comics and analyze the way in which each approaches its subject differently, ranging from exhortations to remember a dark past, to nostalgic childhood recollections of a country that no longer exists. The talk will be held on Thursday, October 30 at 5 PM in Kimpel 105.

Event Image Gwendolyn Wright lecture — Southeast Society of Architectural Historians Conference
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Main Campus - (WALK) Vol Walker Hall

Gwendolyn Wright will present a lecture at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 of Vol Walker Hall, on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. She is the keynote speaker for the Southeast Society of Architectural Historians Conference, which is being hosted by the Fay Jones School of Architecture.

Wright is a professor of architecture in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. Upon receiving tenure in 1986, she became the first tenured woman in the school. Wright served as the director of the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture from 1988 to 1992.

Wright has received fellowships from numerous institutions, including the Guggenheim Foundation, the Getty Center for the History of Art and the Humanities, the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, the University of Michigan Institute for the Humanities, the Stanford Humanities Center and the Ford Foundation. In 1985, she was elected a Fellow of the Society of American Historians, which honors literary quality in America history writing. She also has been made a Fellow of the Society of Architectural Historians, the highest honor in that field. She was named an Outstanding Alumnus from the University of California at Berkeley’s College of Environmental Design, where she received her Master of Architecture and doctorate.

Wright is the author or editor of six books. Her most recent, USA (2008), is part of Reaktion Books’ international series, Modern Architectures in History, that presents the distinctive narratives of 25 different nations. Wright also is the author of The Politics of Design in French Colonial Urbanism (1991) and Moralism and the Model Home: Domestic Architecture and Cultural Conflict in Chicago, 1873-1913 (1980). Her book Building the Dream: A Social History of Housing in America (1981) is now in its 17th printing and being translated into Chinese). She also has had many articles published in scholarly books and journals, as well as newspapers around the world. She focuses primarily on the interconnections between architecture, urbanism and political culture from the late 19th century to the present. Her special interests are the history and future of American housing; contrasts between popular and professional “urban imaginaries”; and trans-national patterns of architecture and urbanism, especially colonial and post-colonial design.

She currently is writing an article on the history of American affordable housing for Cityscape, the journal of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and a book on the topic with Abby Hamlin, a developer of affordable housing.

Since 2001, Wright also has been one of the five hosts for the PBS television series History Detectives. Addressing a general audience, but also admired by specialists, the program uses physical artifacts to explain the processes and pleasures of historical research, including the likelihood of ambiguous or conflicting evidence. By 2012, when the format was changed, it was the third most widely viewed show on PBS.

The public is invited to attend. Admission is free, with limited seating.

Most recently, one of Wissmiller's glittered video portraits, The Gilding of Lily,  was selected by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery to be included in the "Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition”.

Karl Marlantes, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, will discuss his book, What It Is Like to Go to War, at 6:30 p.m. in Hillside Auditorium at the University of Arkansas as part of this year’s One Book, One Community program.

“Marlantes wants potential soldiers and policymakers to know what it means to enter into combat and what returning veterans have to cope with at home,” Chancellor G.

Event Image "Resplendent" exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

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.

Event Image 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.
