Silent Film Series: Charlie Chaplin in The Circus

Sunday, February 3 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Tickets are $10, Students and Seniors $8.

Wrongfully accused of criminal acts, a tramp (Charlie Chaplin) unwittingly ducks into a big top, where his bumbling attempts to avoid pursuing police officers earn the laughter and applause of the circus-goers. Impressed, the ringmaster (Allan Garcia) decides to employ the tramp as an entertainer. In between getting trapped in a lion’s cage and partaking in clumsy high wire escapades, he falls for a beautiful show rider (Merna Kennedy), who unfortunately has eyes for a daring tightrope acrobat.

The World of Ludwig Bemelmans: A presentation by Janet Pocorobba, Associate Professor at Lesley College

Feb. 11, 7 pm

Most of us know Ludwig Bemelmans as the writer and illustrator of the popular Madeline books for children. But did you know that he wrote for Hollywood, designed sets for Broadway, owned restaurants in South America and Europe, and painted everything from magazine covers to frescos? Through dramatic reading, lecture, and visuals, we’ll explore Bemelmans, man and myth.

Norwich University School of Architecture + Art presents artist Phyllis Kornfeld

Norwich University School of Architecture + Art Lecture Series welcomes artist Phyllis Kornfeld, who will present her artwork as well as her work entitled “Cell Block Visions: Prison Art in America” on Friday, Feb. 15, at 4 p.m. in Mack Hall Auditorium.

This event is free and open to the public.

Kornfeld discovered her talent for art at a young age and was continuously encouraged to pursue art by friends and family. She attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and focused on Art Education. Kornfeld taught art in a variety of settings, ranging from grade school to junior college, and teaching community art classes.

It wasn’t until 1983 that Kornfeld found her true calling after applying to teach art to prisoners. She was hired to teach at three Oklahoma state penitentiaries, and quickly recognized the talent these prisoners harbored. They used unconventional ways to create and imagine and did so with limited supplies and art education. To encourage this raw form of art they produced, Kornfeld would teach in unconventional ways. She found that teaching ideas such as composition and color theory would stand in the way of the artistic expression inmates could produce naturally and with great creative force.

Inspired after teaching in prisons for 14 years, Kornfeld published “Cell Block Visions: Prison Art in America” in 1997. From her unique experiences, she discusses the origin of prison art, her encounters with the inmates and the impact that art has had in their lives.

Tales from the Middle Ages on a dig in Tuscany

Presentation by Hayley Malloy

Friday, February 22, 2019 4:00 to 6:00 pm
Room 427 Waterman Building at UVM
UVM Senior Hayley Malloy spent her summer in Tuscany excavating the remains of a twelfth century church at a site in Altopascio, about ten miles from Lucca, under the auspices of the Archaeological Field School Pozzeveri. The goal was to reconstruct the settlement’s evolution throughout the Early Middle Ages, to learn of the settlement’s trade routes and community outreaches by examining material goods such as iron ore, pottery, marble, coins, and other artifacts. Hayley received a grant from the Vermont Italian Cultural Association to participate in this project.

Introduction to The Four Agreements

Feb. 26, 6:30–7:30 pm

With Sherry Rhynard, Integrative Life and Stress Management Coach

Would you like less drama, change old habits, more personal freedom, increased tranquility, and positive growth? Sherry uses The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz in her coaching to help clients with their change work. These agreements: be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, don’t make assumptions, and always do your best will be the themes to self-reflect upon. This may be the catalyst needed to create the positive change you are looking for. An ending experiential exercise based on any one or all of these agreements will provide a start for this change to take shape. It will be helpful to read the book before this talk but it is not a requirement.
