“Working in her home/studio, Nix combines cardboard, foam, glue and paint to construct
small dioramas which she then photographs with an 8 x 10” camera. Often taking up
to seven months to complete, these large scale photographs of everyday places –
a laundromat, bar, library, aquarium – fall victim to decay, referencing the effects
of man. Using humor as her anchor, Nix’s work challenges our perceptions of reality,
as she reminds us of our responsibilities.
Lori Nix has received many honors including a 2004 and 2010 New York Foundation
for the Arts Individual Artist Grant. Her work has been exhibited throughout the
country and is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), The International
Museum of Photography at George Eastman House (Rochester, NY) and the Smithsonian
American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., among others.”

for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf
by Ntozake Shange
8:00 p.m. Cobb Theatre, R-MC Center for the Performing Arts (drama presentation)
for colored girls… is a series of 20 poems, encapsulating in poetry and movement
the struggles of generations of African-American women against repression, brutality
and indifference. Performed by a cast of seven women, each of whom is abstracted
and identified only by a color, the piece deals with the traumas and eventual triumphs
of women whose collective story of endurance and transcendence remains as compelling
as when the piece first played off-Broadway in 1977. This production will be directed
by Shenochia Jordan ’12, as her senior project in drama.
The Box Office (a phone mailbox) begins taking reservations at 10:00 a.m. on November
