    In honor of World Social Justice Day, Feb 20th, we are looking for people to bring forth pieces of social justice, as the Fiat will be releasing a special edition. Writing pieces and pictures can include personal experiences, a definition you want to explain, or a movement that caught your eye as long as it ties back to social justice. If you would like to remain anonymous you can. We would like to also encourage faculty to write their own pieces if they are interested. Your work could be papers you have written in the past or it could be a small blurb of feelings you have toward a particular movement. There really is no limit.

    For clubs, you can also advertise an event or your club in general as long as it pertains to Social Justice in some way!

    If you are interested or would like to submit a paper please email kio1@alfred.edu.

    Deadline is Feb 19th.

    Come see the traveling exhibit, Recognizing Women's Right to Vote in New York State at Herrick Library's Leondar Learning Commons now through Friday, March 2.

    New York State is celebrating the centennial of women gaining the right to vote in New York State on November 6, 1917-three years before the 19th Amendment was passed and women throughout the United States gained the right to vote. The South Central Regional Library Council and the Empire State Library Network has partnered with the Digital Public Library of America on an exhibit, "Recognizing Women's Right to Vote in New York State." This exhibit looks beyond the traditional Women's Suffrage narrative and explores the history behind the movement that made New York State such an important place in the fight for Women's Suffrage.

    Ladia Guerra and Victoria Kue
    Cohen Artistic Promise Prize Exhibitions
    Through Friday, March 16, 2018

    Ladia Guerra: The Sweat Life
    Ladia is fascinated by the artificial world created by contemporary society and is interested in the actions we take to make our lives happier through consumption and social pressure. She observes this by researching American pop culture through social media, television, and personal experience and manipulates her observations through the self. The self acts as a blank canvas to express feelings about her upbringing and her culture.

    "The Sweat Life" explores domestic spaces and the way in which we interact in and view them. The artist has created video works conveying the feeling of loneliness, belonging, and the somewhat grotesque nature of private domestic spaces. The videos insight laughter, feelings of unease, and offer a psychological twist on what a domestic space can be through the lens of commercial objects and characters.

    www.ladiaguerra.com

    Victoria Kue: what's her face.
    Victoria's studio practice stems from her query of autobiography and the investigation of the female narrative within her Hmong-American perspective. Victoria's observations from cultural, bodily and emotional experiences direct her approach to material and representation. Her sculpture, installation, drawings and abstractions evoke conversations about self-identity through patterns, color and language.

    "what's her face." pushes back at the familial interrogation of a sexually active Hmong-American woman who negotiates and claims ownership with her identity, body and sexuality. Using the house as the setting to confront self-identity, "what's her face." explores placement, function and language within domestic objects as a way to recognize the discomfort, struggles and paradoxes within sexual relationships.

    The 2016 Cohen Artistic Promise Prize recognized two graduating seniors whose work, hunger, sustained growth and ambition marked them out as those who would continue on as artists beyond their academic training. The Prize, which granted the recipients concurrent solo shows at the Cohen 18 months following graduation, was designed to foster the growth begun in school, encourage the continuation of artistic practice and support the drive needed to reach full artistic potential.
