Mike Kan Memorial Art Commision

 Call for Artists Commission: Mike Kan Memorial Art Commission 

The Erb Memorial Union (EMU) and the Kan Family invite artists to submit portfolios as application for a commissioned public artwork for placement in the EMU. In order to apply for the commission, University of Oregon undergraduate students should submit previously completed work that demonstrates originality and skill in creating and executing two dimensional work. The work submitted must have been completed within the past 2 years. 

Mike Kan was a student at the graduated from UO in 1977 and one of the founding member of the Asian and Pacific American Student Union. To honor his memory of his contributions to campus, the family is commissioning a piece of work that represents the qualities of his service to the University: diversity; leadership; service to self and others. 

Selected artists will work with the EMU Art Committee and the family to plan and execute the new commission. 

To apply, student artists should submit an entry that contains: 

• Digital images of no more than 5 pieces of previously completed artwork. Images should include information about medium and size. 

• A brief individual history and artist statement (no more than two pages) that addresses how your past work aligns with the criteria (diversity, leadership, service to self and others) and how these elements will inform a commissioned piece. 

• Please include a letter of reference or recommendation from a faculty member or mentor who can speak to your ability to plan, execute and collaborate on a significant commissioned work. 

• Send complete application with the above three requirements attached to pacsa@uoregon.edu by December 2, 2019. 

The selection committee will evaluate applications on: 

• Quality, skill, and artistic merit demonstrated in previous work 

• Representation of the themes of diversity, leadership, service to self and others in previous work 

• Artist’s demonstrated capacity to work with a committee to create a commissioned work that exemplifies the themes of diversity, leadership, service to self and others 

• Reference from faculty and/or professional mentor 

The commissioned artist will be awarded up to $1,500 depending on merit. The award price includes money for professional framing and presentation, as the completed work must be professionally framed and ready to hang. The EMU Art Committee will work with the artist after piece is complete to make sure it meets framing and hanging specifications. The work will be added to the EMU Permanent Art Collection in addition to being highlighted at relevant special events. 

The award may be split between multiple deserving artists at the family and EMU Art Committee’s discretion.

Submitted images may also be selected and shown in an art show in the Adell McMillan Gallery in the EMU celebrating the qualities of service that represent Kan’s contribution to the University of Oregon. 

Once selected, the artist will work the EMU Art Committee and the Kan Family to plan and execute the new work (including location to be on display). 

About the EMU Permanent Art Collection 

The Erb Memorial Union Permanent Art Collection has been in existence since the EMU building was constructed in 1950. The collection began with a dozen paintings and etchings by a handful of artists and now boasts over 240 works of art. The focus of the collection has been influenced by its relationship to the Pacific Northwest Art Annual and the large donation of northwest art from the estate of Adell McMillan. The EMU Art Committee will consider further acquisitions based on what the piece brings to the collection and its representation of northwest art and artists. Pieces in the collection displayed in public space are available for viewing anytime the building is open. 

Permanent Art Collection Mission Statement: 

The EMU Permanent Art Collection strives to build and maintain a diverse representation of Pacific Northwest art and artists.

Study abroad in Greece this summer with UO art faculty Carla Bengtson and Colleen Choquette-Raphael

The unique landscape of the Greek islands and the multilayered city of Athens provide the setting for this intensive three-week studio art course. Through a series of lectures, fieldwork, daily excursions to archaeological sites and museums, contemporary galleries and engagement with land and sea, students will have the opportunity to weave their experience of place and consideration of history and art into the practice of making art. Our methods will be interdisciplinary and open to various modes of expression, which might include but are not limited to, drawing and painting, text, performance, photography, sound and video.

Join us for “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”

“Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities”
November 8–9, 2019
Giustina Ballroom, Ford Alumni Center
1720 E. 13th Ave.
University of Oregon
Eugene, Oregon (Kalapuya Ilihi)
 
Join us on November 8 and 9 for the annual conference of the Western Humanities Alliance “Engaged Humanities: Partnerships between Academia and Tribal Communities” hosted by the Oregon Humanities Center and University of Oregon’s Native American Studies program.
Bringing together an impressive group of native scholars, community members, tribal leaders, and UO faculty and students, the conference will explore the challenges and opportunities of collaborations between the academy and America’s native and First Nations communities to use the arts and humanities to advance the public good.
 
“Native American Studies and the Native Strategies Group are really excited to partner with the Oregon Humanities Center for this conference,” says Dr. Kirby Brown, Assistant Professor of English and Native American Studies. “As a public institution in a state with nine federally recognized tribes and whose existence is inextricably tied to histories of dispossession and colonial violence, the University of Oregon must continue to cultivate and strengthen ties with tribal nations. Making space for Indigenous scholars, filmmakers, performers, community members, staff, and students to come together and share the important work going on at our institutions and across our communities is one way to honor those commitments.”
 
Featured keynote speakers include Fawn Sharp (Quinault Indian Nation), President, and Clarita Lefthand-Begay (Diné Nation), University of Washington professor, who will address Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples; and Mishuana Goeman (Tonawanda Band of Seneca), UCLA professor of American Indian Studies, who will speak on “Beyond Settler Apologies: Land Grant Institutions and Indigenous Futurities.”
 
In addition, numerous native scholars, community members, and tribal leaders will participate in ceremonies, panels, a concert reading and discussion of the play Salmon is Everything by UO Theatre Arts Professor Theresa May, and a film screening and discussion of the social justice documentary Promised Land. The film documents the struggles for federal recognition by the Chinook and Duwamish tribal nations. Filmmaker Sarah Salcedo and Tony Johnson (Chinook Indian Nation) will participate in the discussion.
 
The University of Oregon and the City of Eugene are situated on Kalapuya Ilihi, the traditional homelands and political territories of the Kalapuya peoples, whose descendants are now citizens of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.
 
The conference is free and open to the public. The conference-rate hotel is The Phoenix Inn Suites, 850 Franklin Blvd. The WHA Conference room block is available until October 7, 2019. To make reservations, please call 541-344-0001 (toll free 800-344-0131) and ask for the Western Humanities Alliance Room Block. For more information and the complete program go to: ohc.uoregon.edu/2019-wha-symposium.
