Exhibition: Nature's Toolbox: Biodiversity, Art and Invention
107-day event: 8/31/2013 - 12/15/2013
Location: Ulrich Museum of Art, McKnight Art Center East

"Nature's Toolbox: Biodiversity, Art and Invention" is an exhibition of the works of more than 40 international artists in a wide range of media. Harnessing technology and inspired by nature's amazing design concepts, the show's innovative, eye-capturing art helps us understand and appreciate the life-or-death interdependence between the 10-20 million species on earth, including humans and the quality of the environment we share.

World Cinema: God Loves Uganda
Location: 100 Lindquist Hall

Join us for a 2013 Tallgrass Film Festival encore screening of "God Loves Uganda."

An example of international relations, the film documents the effects and consequences of a kind of cultural influence imposed by one country on another. It shows what happens when some young Americans eagerly go to Uganda to convince the Ugandan people that the cultural values they represent are superior to those of the native people. It underscores the importance of broader education, so that young people especially learn not what to think, but how to think for themselves. The film shows what can happen when education in America fails to live up to a higher standard of integrity, awareness and humanity.

Directed by Roger Ross Williams; U.S.A. 2013; 90 minutes.

Admission is free.
Open to the public.

Rie Bloomfield Organ Series presents Kathrine Handford
Location: Wiedemann Hall

Join us for a concert featuring Kathrine Handford.

Handford is University Organist and Lecturer of Music at Lawrence University's Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wis., a position she has held since 2004. From 2005 until 2010, she was Director of Music and the Arts and Organist at the historic Central Presbyterian Church in downtown St. Paul, Minn.

She holds a Master of Music degree in Organ Performance and Literature and the highly coveted Performer's Certificate in Organ from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., where she has done post-graduate studies in harpsichord and organ performance.

A musician of wide-ranging interests and accomplishments, Handford has appeared in recitals in the United States, Canada, England and Scandinavia. She has been a featured artist at the Bergen International Festival in Norway; the St. Olaf Festival in Trondheim, Norway; the Lahti International Music Festival in Finland; and at the International Organ Festival in Arona, Italy.

In 1993, Handford was the winner of the 35th International J.S. Bach Competition held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. In the same year, she received first prize in the John R. Rodland Scholarship Competition, sponsored by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. She has been the recipient of many grants and awards including the National Endowment for the Arts. This past year she was the recipient of a grant from the prestigious Mellon Foundation.

Handford has appeared as a soloist with the Minnesota Orchestra and the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra. She has also performed numerous recitals with the Swedish natural trumpet virtuoso Niklas Eklund and has toured with the Australian Baroque Brass. Her interest in new music has led to premieres of several new works for organ, including Stephen Paulus' Toccata for Organ, Ketil Hvoslef's Toccata for Organ, Robert Starer's Angel Voices, David Liptak's Sonata for Violin and Organ, which was commissioned by Benedictinus 2000 and premiered in Rome, Haunted Divertimento by Aaron David Miller, and most recently this new solo work by Stephen Paulus.

She has produced more than 60 recordings of choral and organ music together with her husband Bill Lund, who is an award winning recording engineer.

She is in demand as a performer, clinician and adjudicator. Her students at Lawrence have received top awards and honors in regional and national organ playing competitions.
