News & AnnouncementsChapel Spire Update...Work is continuing to reinforce the Christ Chapel spire and a crane is expected to arrive this week. Inspections are also underway. When final inspections are completed, Christ Chapel will be reopened. Watch The Yellow Sheet or community-l for updates.
Yellow Sheet Reminder... Due to touring week, The Yellow Sheet will not be published Jan. 25. Publication will resume Feb. 1.
Web News... On the Gustavus Web, there's a new site for alumni affairs. The site (http://gustavus.edu/alumni/alumni.cfm) features historical Gustavus photographs, an online interactive poll, a bulletin board for alumni to read and post questions, answers, and opinions, the ability to update address and personal information including births/adoptions, weddings, employment information, and deaths, and a dynamically driven e-mail address search. The Office of Alumni Affairs hopes to capitalize on this asset by providing its alumni community with interactive tools for keeping in touch.
Performance Art Exhibit Wednesday... All are invited to attend a performance art video exhibit featuring the works of Gustavus students from 8-10 p.m. Jan. 17 in Alumni Hall. Performance art is a medium that emerged in the 1960s; it is based on live performance by the artist and, unlike theater, tied to a specific artist. Performance art is also generally not repeated. Titled "Flesh by Student Bodies: Performance Art on Video," the exhibit focuses on the body and what it means to be a physical being. The specific themes are diverse, including body image, sexuality, social pressure, historic context, self-perception, vulnerability, food, biology, childhood, adulthood, and gender. The event is free and sponsored by the Gustavus Art History Club. (Some content may be deemed inappropriate for children.) For more information, contact Travis Nygard (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tim Weld (email@example.com).
