Fri

Second floor mezzanine in the Glenn G. Bartle Library
Eclectic Collections looks at both personal and institutional collecting. The act of collecting can be very emotional or very deliberate, and the term eclectic supports the diverse, interdisciplinary, inclusive and multifaceted nature of the process. The exhibit itself seeks to inform the viewer of the history of collecting, how collections were formed in the Binghamton University Libraries, and to showcase the personal collections of individuals across campus. Contribute to our exhibit! If you are interested in sharing an image of your collection (anonymously, or telling a bit about yourself) please submit your content to our online form. http://bit.ly/BingLibrary

Fine Arts Building, Room 259
Featuring Morgan Craig "Bring on the Clows: Specters of Capital" This exhibition of paintings by Philadelphia based artist Morgan Craig examines how identity is influenced by the types of architectural edifices present in a given landscape. Craig’s architectural structures act as both repositories and as vehicles for memory, providing a tangible framework through which facets of a society can be expressed. His work is not merely a documentation of places, but a sociopolitical commentary on the effects of hubris, avarice, free trade, outsourcing, deregulation, obsolescence, and international-finance-capital upon communities throughout the world.
12:00pm - 4:00pm
Fine Arts Building
Featuring “not but nothing other: African-American Portrayals, 1930s to Today”
Titled after a poem by Fred Moten, “not but nothing other: African-American Portrayals,
1930 to Today” will present depictions of and by Black Americans, providing a wideranging
survey of how artists over the last eighty years have responded to the challenge
of picturing African-American selfhood. Key eras of creative production—the Harlem
Renaissance, the Civil Rights and Black Power eras, as well as our present moment—are
represented by artworks drawn from four prominent US public collections: the Art
Bridges Foundation; the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; the Albright-Knox Art
Gallery; and the Fisk University Galleries. From portraits to re-imaginings of historical
figures such as Harriet Tubman, from realistic renderings to conceptual experiments,
these works evidence the ongoing struggle to affirm Black identity within an America
marked since its founding by the legacy of slavery, segregation, and racial
discrimination.  Organized by Tom McDonough, Associate Professor of Art History, Binghamton University.  Generous support for this project is provided by Art Bridges.

Teacher, New York Times best-selling author and columnist Jessica Lahey inspires audiences with her rallying cry to allow students to fail so they can learn to be successful, resilient, self-reliant adults. Her breakthrough manifesto, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed, is essential reading for parents, educators and coaches. Lahey addresses “overparenting” with the helpful authority of a seasoned teacher and the empathetic, humorous, personal perspective of a mom who has truly been there.

Hear her make the case that students learn and develop best when they are given autonomy and valued for the content of their character – not the letters on their report card.
Jessica will be signing books after the event.
