Glick Fund Gift to Herron School of Art and Design will provide up to 70 need-based scholarships for Saturday School
Glick Fund Gift to Herron School of Art and Design will provide up to 70 need-based scholarships for Saturday School The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF), has made a $17,850 gift to Herron School of Art and Design’s Saturday School Program. One of the Glick Fund’s target areas is the arts and creative expression. Herron was one of 49 local organizations in the Fund’s latest round of grants, announced in mid-November, which totaled more than $4 million.
Last spring, 43 students requested tuition aid to attend Herron’s Saturday School. Only two scholarships were available. “This gift will help us better serve students in grades six through 12 from IPS and Wayne and Warren township schools,” said Jodie Hardy, director of community learning programs at Herron. The Glick Fund gift will provide scholarships for up to 70 students. Registration is already underway for spring 2014 Saturday School, which runs January 25 through March 15. Each class session is three hours. Tuition is $255 per student per eight-week session.
“We hope our grants will help address the immediate needs of the community while also building the long-term capacity of the organizations delivering services,” said Marianne Glick, director at the Eugene & Marilyn Glick Family Foundation and The Glick Fund.
About Saturday School
Established in 1922, Herron School of Art and Design’s Saturday School program provides quality art instruction for youth and adults for eight Saturdays each fall and spring.
Classes offer a variety of media—painting, ceramics, drawing, photography and more. Students’ ages range from second graders to high school seniors. Classes are also open to adults, allowing families to enjoy creating together. The average student is a creative junior high or high school student interested in discovering more about art and design while learning within a fun, safe and professional environment. Classes are taught by Herron’s degree-seeking students and take place in excellent studio facilities, giving many younger students their first exposure to a university environment.
Each semester concludes with an open house exhibition, reception and awards ceremony.

Laurie Beth Clark invited hundreds of artists to create an artwork that is inspired by, uses, or plays with the idea of bones. The works are in many media and two, three, or four dimensions. The contributions range from political statements to personal elegies, memorials to individuals or broader statements about mortality. Some connect ancestors to descendants. Some are serious and some use bones in a completely playful manner.

In this exhibition, Martinkus shows a new suite of work comprised of video, imagery and objects both appropriated and fabricated. Together, these works recast the experience of contemporary life as one defined by viewership and imageness.

Laura Foster, J.D., Ph.D. is Assistant Professor Gender Studies, Affiliate Faculty, Maurer School of Law, Indiana University.
In 1998 researchers with the South African Center for Scientific and Industrial Research (“CSIR”) isolated and patented certain chemical compositions within the Hoodia gordonii plant responsible for suppressing appetite. Hoodia gordonii suddenly emerged as a patented invention poised to be a blockbuster anti-obesity drug. At the same time, the plant became a symbol of South Africa as nation of innovation, and Indigenous San peoples publicly accused scientists of stealing their knowledge of the plant. Advancing a powerful global campaign, San peoples negotiated a benefit sharing agreement with CSIR giving them 6% of the potential revenue from future Hoodia sales. Hopes for Hoodia , however, ended in 2009 when Unilever terminated the project.
Drawing upon and contributing to feminist post-colonial science studies, this talk considers Hoodia gordonii as a boundary object that brings the divergent interests and stakes of various social actors together. Furthermore, it unpacks the black box of patent law to ask how both science and law work together to determine who is (or is not) considered an inventor and producer of science.
Free and open to the campus and public, but space is limited. Please RSVP to: email@example.com.
In Woman President: Confronting Postfeminist Political Culture, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis professor Kristina Horn Sheeler and Colorado State University professor Karrin Vasby Anderson examine the 2008 candidacies of Clinton and Palin, and presidential campaigns of other women, along with campaign public addresses, political journalism and punditry, political humor, and television and movie depictions of female presidents. The authors uncover a political and popular culture backlash against women that has kept the White House a man’s place.
“When media depictions of female candidates are based on sexist stereotypes, or worse yet, pornographic and misogynistic framing, we have not just a political culture that discredits political women, but a larger cultural undercurrent that demonstrates a backlash against the gains women have made in the last decade,” Sheeler said.
Sheeler is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Communication Studies in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. Anderson is an associate professor of communication studies at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. The duo also co-authored “Governing Codes: Gender, Metaphor, and Political Identity.”
In “Woman President: Confronting Postfeminist Political Culture,” Sheeler and Anderson provide a discussion of U.S. presidentiality as a unique rhetorical role. Within that framework, they review women’s historical and contemporary presidential bids, placing special emphasis on the 2008 campaign. They also consider how presidentiality is framed in candidate oratory, campaign journalism, film and television, digital media and political parody.
“Everyone seeking a more complete understanding of the presidency, campaign rhetoric, gender studies and the role of the media in the portrayal of women in the White House and in coverage of women in campaigns, including the election of 2008, will find the scholarship and analysis in this book of value,” said Janet M. Martin, author of “The Presidency and Women: Promise, Performance and Illusion in the White House” and professor of government at Bowdoin College.
“Examining women’s historical and recent presidential campaigns, television and movie depictions of women presidents, and the 2008 Clinton and Palin candidacies, Sheeler and Anderson reveal the hegemonic power wielded by an essentialist white masculinity. Their argument is uncompromising and compelling, controversial and persuasive; their book engages and challenges readers across the disciplines,” said MaryAnne Borrelli, author of” The Politics of the President’s Wife” and professor of government at Connecticut College.
Sheeler’s and Anderson’s book, published by Texas A & M University Press, hit bookstore shelves last month.
Deadline: Monday, November 24, 2013 at 5:00 P.M.
