Between Us: A Studio Showing Nov 09, 2012 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Hanes Auditorium, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
The June Porter Johnson Series for the Visual and Performing Arts Presents Between Us: A Studio Showing
 Now in its 30th anniversary season, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948-1988). During this time, they redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company emerged onto the international scene in 1983 with the world premiere of "Intuitive Momentum," which featured legendary drummer Max Roach, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Since then, the 10-member Company has performed worldwide in more than 200 cities in 30 countries on every major continent. Today, the Company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world. In an intimate and informal setting, the Company will perform works from "Between Us," a program of duets that reflect intriguing portraits of the relationship between two people. This focused evening provides a satisfying look at the core of the Jones/Zane style and an overview of the Company’s evolution. The program will include an early Jones/Zane duet, a highly athletic pair of duets and another piece from later in Mr. Jones’s career. The Company in known for dancers with diverse personalities and backgrounds; partnering that is unconventional and unexpected; and a choreographic palette that draws from classical ballet, postmodern abstraction, and arrangements of gesture and shape influenced by film and photography. This event is free of charge; however, tickets are required. Email culturalevents@salem.edu for ticketing information.

Fervently Do We Pray, an original dance-theater piece in honor of Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial commissioned by Ravinia Festival.

BLACK.WHITE.REaD: Journey through the Maze from Feb 04, 2013 12:00 AM to Mar 15, 2013 12:00 AM Mary Davis Holt Gallery, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
Nothing's Black, Hardly White, Nearly ReAd Reception held Friday, February 8, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Similar events are perceived differently by a society’s citizens. Joy and horror are juxtaposed; beauty and ugliness co-exist. How does one process devastating news and continue to live? The constants of the sun and moon rising and setting give thought to the constants of the rise and fall of cultures, institutions and individuals. BLACK.WHITE.REaD: Journey through the Maze probes our increasingly complex society and, while there are no proffered answers, artists use various media to express the adventure of a road well-traveled and the over-stimulated selection of choices permeating our existence. This exhibition is curated by Cecilia Rossey. Some works in this exhibit may contain mature content.

Defining Democracy, written by Salem College professor Daniel Prosterman, examines struggles over electoral reform in New York City to clarify our understanding of democracy’s evolution in the United States and the world. In the midst of global crises concerning the purpose and power of government during the Great Depression, Second World War and early Cold War, New Yorkers debated the meaning of self-rule in the United States. Through a series of campaigns over the expansion of voting rights in New York City, activists challenged the boundaries of who could be elected, what interests could be represented and ultimately, what policies could be implemented at the local level. Prosterman is assistant professor of history and director of the Salem Signature General Education Program at Salem College. Sponsored by the Office of Cultural Events, with support from BOOKMARKS.
