FAU Calendar of Events for the Week of November 8, 2010

BOCA RATON, FL (November 8, 2010) – Florida Atlantic University will host the following events:


FAU Jupiter Library Gallery Hosts ‘You Were Almost Extinct Too’ Exhibition by Derek Weisberg


The free exhibition runs through Friday, December 3, at FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus Library Gallery, 5353 Parkside Drive, Jupiter. For more information, call 561-799-8530 or visit www.library.fau.edu/npb/npb.htm.


The “You Were Almost Extinct Too” exhibition by California artist Derek Weisberg features works created with ceramic, wood and mixed media. The artist used found wood and objects from the local neighborhoods to give his work a sense of place in the university community. Weisberg’s evocative figurative sculptures are detailed, especially in the faces, which take on more individualistic characteristics. The exhibition is not only visually interesting, but brings up tougher issues, such as life and death, and sadness and loss. Weisberg is the first ceramic sculptor to show his work in the MacArthur Campus library gallery space. The library’s hours are Sundays from 12:30 to 11 p.m.; Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.

This free lecture will take place on Wednesday, December 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the Schmidt Gallery on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. For more information, call 56-297-3870. 


Linda Nochlin, a Lila Acheson Wallace Professor of Modern Art, from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, is one of the most influential art historians and feminist thinkers of the past 50 years.
