CADVC partners with The Society for History and Graphics (SHAG) and John Hopkins University to screen ART & COPY in the gallery theatre. Art & Copy is a film about about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray, it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time--people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry. Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation: George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, Hal Riney, and others featured in Art & Copy were responsible for "Just Do It," "I Love NY," "Where's the Beef?," "Got Milk?," "Think Different," and brillant campaigns for evverything from cars to presidents.

Organized by the SOCIETY FOR HISTORY AND GRAPHICS, THE CENTER FOR ART, DESIGN AND VISUAL CULTURE, and supported by JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY.

On-Line Symposium
Date: Monday, April 5, 2010
Time: 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Note: Dates run from Monday April 5, 2010 to Wednesday April 14, 2010.

Who: PANELISTS
Cost: FREE

The CULTURAL PROGRAMS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES will co-host the "Visual Culture and Evolution Online Symposium" with the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) and JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY'S MASTER OF ARTS IN MUSEUM STUDIES PROGRAM. The online symposium will take place on the Internet from April 5 through April 14.

Visit the symposium: HTTP://WWW.VCANDE.ORG
Follow the discussion: HTTP://VCANDE.BLOGSPOT.COM

Join a group of more than 30 international experts - including artists, scientists, historians, ethicists, curators, sociologists, and writers - as they discuss the intersections between the visual arts and evolution. This past year, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book, "On the Origin of Species," a number of conferences were held around the world focusing on the impact of the concept of evolution. This symposium will be a platform to discuss both the ideas generated from those activities and the present impact of evolutionary thought on visual culture.

The symposium, which will be conducted through software designed for online courses, will be publicly accessible at HTTP://WWW.VCANDE.ORG. The online format overcomes geographic and financial barriers, enabling leading figures in these fields from around the world to engage in the discussion without a major disruption to their research and practices.

Kevin Finneran, editor in chief of Issues in Science and Technology, will moderate the discussion. Issues is the quarterly policy journal published by the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and University of Texas at Dallas.

For more than 29 years, the Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences has sponsored exhibitions, concerts, and other events that explore relationships among the arts and sciences.

CADVC partners with Baltimore's 7TH ANNUAL TRANSMODERN FESTIVAL to screen Maggots and Men, an experimental, historical narrative set in post-revolutionary Russia. The film re-tells the story of the 1921 uprising of the Kronstadt sailors with a subtext of gender anarchy. A thoughtful homage to Soviet, silent era directors and artists of the Russian avant-garde, the film explores themes of re-invention, revolution, community, and corruption. Director, Cary Cronenwett, will be on hand to speak about the film following the screening.

With support from the UMBC DRESHER CENTER FOR THE HUMANITIES, DEPARTMENT OF VISUAL ARTS & Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture.

DIRECTIONS & CAMPUS MAP
(Free Parking - Lots 8 & 9)
Cost: FREE

On Friday, March 5th, “Anarchy in the Kitchen,” a Webcast/gastro-performance event featuring work by DC and Baltimore artists, will stream live over the Internet as part of the NYC-based Umami Food and Arts Festival. Please join us for a local viewing party.

“Anarchy in the Kitchen” brings together a diverse group of artists who engage in acts of culinary chaos that interrogate the intersection of edibility and aesthetics, technology and cuisine, and prose and produce. From human sausage grinders and battery-powered lemons to shopping cart gardens and text message meals, “Anarchy in the Kitchen” questions notions of digestibility, consumption, and good taste in our daily interactions with the food system.

“Anarchy in the Kitchen” is curated by UMBC Visual Arts Adjunct, Laura McGough, and features performances, videos, and sound works by Graham Coreil-Allen, Bradley Chriss, Adam Good, Carolina Mayorga, Rebecca Nagle, Casey Smith, UMBC IMDA grad alum, Shannon Young, UMBC IMDA grad, Natalia Panfile, and UMBC Visual Arts Faculty: Steve Bradley, Lisa Moren, and Tim Nohe. An iPhone version of the Webcast will be available for download on March 5th via the Umami Website at: HTTP://WWW.UMAMIFESTIVAL2010.COM/.

This is a free event!

The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture is located in the Fine Arts Building. Parking is available in the lots located behind the Fine Arts Building.
