7:30 P.M. Thayer Lecture: Dr. Jennifer Keene presents Americans at War: Experiencing World War One (PP)
Wimberly Recital Hall, Presser Hall
World War I meant separation, combat and loss for millions around the globe. American soldiers were among those on the front-lines who experienced the war's unrelenting violence. Tragedy defined one aspect of the soldier's wartime experience, but so did enthusiasm, fear, camaraderie, hatred and patriotism. Some soldiers saw an opportunity for adventure and travel; others a chance to advance political causes. The war's end meant difficult, sometimes violent, homecomings. Were these men permanently brutalized by their war years? Within a few years' time World War I veterans answered this question by forging a new form of non-violent political protest: collective direct action in pursuit of economic and racial social justice.

2 P.M. Kids Curate: Family Program
Maier Museum of Art
Kids Curate: Family Program - The Maier Museum’s current exhibition Crowdsourced from the Permanent Collection, illustrates a popular style of “curating” in today’s world, often using the internet. People are curating online everyday through Pinterest, Facebook picture albums, Instagram and other online mediums. This family program, intended for kids ages 6 and older, builds on the idea that we are all “curators” in a variety of ways. Participants are invited to learn about the process of curating an art exhibition including developing a theme, choosing artwork within that theme, and expressing an overall concept to others. Using that knowledge, participants will curate their own exhibit around a theme of their choosing using a selection of images provided to them. Each student will then share with the group their exhibition title, theme, and why each piece was chosen for their mini exhibition. Maier Members $4; others $5. All materials provided. This workshop is led by artist
