    Hello Faculty & Staff,

    Colleges Against Cancer is collaborating with Alfred State College in organizing their annual Relay for Life event this year on April 14 from 12:00 pm - 12:00 am! Relay for Life is an event created by the American Cancer Association to raise money for cancer research and treatments.

    Relay for Life is open to the community and if you would like to participate this year you can join our team! The event requires at least one person from each team to be walking throughout the event, so you will not have to stay the full 12 hours. If you would like to join our team just click the link below! (There is a $15 registration fee, but it is added to the donations for Relay for Life.) If you have any questions feel free to email us!


    Colleges Against Cancer will be holding a fundraiser for Relay for Life this month, from March 19-March 30. The fundraiser is Easter-themed: a large, inflatable bunny will move from office to office around campus, similar to the Thanksgiving themed inflatable turkey last semester! The bunny will start in President Zupan's office! Faculty and staff may have the bunny removed for a small ransom. The bunny can be removed for a $2 donation, sent to a specific department for $5, or sent to a specific person's office for $10. Students will be available to move the bunny from place to place throughout the week. (We will take a break during the weekend!)

    Thank you in advance for your participation! Please feel free to send pictures of the bunny's journey to the Colleges Against Cancer email account, cac@alfred.edu. If you would like to make a specific donation, please feel free to send an email to cac@alfred.edu. (You can also email Colleges Against Cancer to opt out of participating in this fundraising event.) All proceeds will go directly to Relay for Life.

    Let's give this bunny the run of its life!

    Audra Wolowiec is an interdisciplinary artist whose work oscillates between sculpture, installation, text and performance with an emphasis on sound and the material qualities of lan-guage.

Her work has been shown internationally and in the United States at MASS MoCA, Art in General, Studio 10, The Poetry Project, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Stony Brook University, and the Center for Performance Research. Featured in BOMB, The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, CAA Journal, Modern Painters, and Sound American. Residencies include Bemis Center for Contem-porary Art, Complex Systems Art and Physics Residency at the University of Oregon supported by a National Science Foundation grant and Dieu Donné.

    Kabi Raj Lama

    Kabi Raj Lama is an Artist from Kathmandu Nepal. He is known for his large-scale Woodcuts and Lithographic works. As a resident of Boudha and living close to the sacred Boudhanath Stupa, he was inspired by the strong cultural and spiritual environment. He believes that printing genre matches his creative tendencies, allows his emotions to easily transmit onto chemicals, ink, stone surface and paper. His recent works are bold and independent with brush movements creating raw strokes revealing the swift tendency he has developed in printmaking. He likes the idea of preparing the plates without any plans, not knowing its end result. The scale, speed and colors of these imprinted strokes speak the language of his inner motions. Kabi's work has been exhibited internationally and he has been an Artist in Residence in Japan, China, Germany and the United States.

    Barbara Madsen

    Madsen is known for her works in installation, sculpture, photography, and video. Her vast collections of cast-off 20th-century industrial matter--spark plugs, machine parts, welding masks, light switches, rubber, plastic, prosthetics, artificial eyes, and much more-serve as fodder for her work depicting a voracious world gone awry.

    Madsen's recent videos have been broadcast in Germany, France, and Italy. She has had solo exhibitions in Italy, Scotland, the Czech Republic, Serbia, and the United States. Her works have been shown in numerous international exhibitions in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Her art has been exhibited at the

    New York Public Library, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, the Lowry Lab Theater in Minneapolis, and at the International Print Center New York. She has been a visiting artist in New Zealand, Serbia, Belgium, Scotland, the Czech Republic, and Singapore. Her works are in the collections of the New York Public Library, Library of Congress, Dartmouth College, University of Sharijah: United Arab Emirates, Guanlan Art Center; Shenzhen, China, and Amoco Corporation.
