All Day
In 1996, the Academy of American Poets designated April as National Poetry Month. Artists have long been inspired by poetry, and likewise, poets are often inspired by works of art. This relationship between text and image finds a unique expression in the book arts. With the acquisition of the Corcoran School of Art + Design, GWs Special Collections Research Center received nearly 300 artists books, which have been amassed as a resource for the MA Art and the Book program. This exhibit draws upon that collection, presenting a selection of the numerous artists books that utilize poetry or lyrics as a basis for artistic expression in book form. Media and Public Affairs Building Second Floor Display Cases Available for viewing when the building is open to the public, 8 a.m. - 10 p.m.
This year marks the 29th Annual Filmfest DC. This event is a film festival featuring international cinema meant to challenge normal assumptions and spark new thought. This year features a variety of films from Spain just as Flowers, Living is Easy with Eyes Closed, and more. Flowers is the story of three women, three lives altered by the mere presence of flowers. Ane's life takes a turn when a bouquet of flowers is delivered to her house every week, always anonymously. Lourdes and Tere's lives are also affected by some mysterious flowers. A stranger leaves a weekly bouquet in memory of someone important in their lives. Living is Easy with Eyes Closed is a film set in Spain, 1966. Antonio is a teacher and a Beatles fan-facets he combines by getting his pupils to recite the lyrics from "Help" in English class. When he learns that his idol John Lennon is making a film in Almería he resolves to meet him. On the journey he picks up two young runaways: Bethlehem, a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and Juanjo, a boy escaping a dictatorial father. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here. The films are presented with the assistance of the Spanish & Latin American Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at GW.
Dr. Yehuda Nir and Dr. Bonnie Maslin Exhibit Hall Gelman Library, 7th floor The Remembering the Holocaust: A Story of Loss, Love and Survival exhibit was created by GW's class on “Holocaust Memory." This exhibit is based on the experiences of two extraordinary young Polish Jews, Norman and Amalie Petranker Salsitz, most of whose relatives were murdered in the Holocaust but who, by their courage and wits, survived, got married, came to America, raised a family and wrote a gripping memoir, Against All Odds. The many photographs and documents they saved, and their utter devotion to memory, enabled them to amass and document a collection that is utterly unique and that forms the basis of this exhibition. It tells their story as well as the story of a world that was and is no more. Read more about the exhibit and the opening, addressed by Esther Dezube, the daughter of the Salsitzes; Steven Lerman, the Provost of George Washington University; the students who created the exhibition; and the course’s instructor, Walter Reich, GW’s Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Professor, who is a former Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: GW Student Exhibit: A Story of Holocaust Survival ‘Against All Odds’: “Remembering the Holocaust” captures the stunning life of Norman and Amalie Salsitz This exhibit is made possible by a Faculty & Staff Innovation Grant from the Shenkman Career Services Fund.

For the April installment of the GWI Faculty Research Luncheon Series, Dr. Ivy Ken of the Sociology and Women's Studies departments will discuss her paper: "Chilean Women in the Global Value Chain." Dr. Ken will explore the gender implications of private governance in the supply of school food in Chile. The nation has been recognized as having one of the five most efficient school feeding programs in the world, providing breakfast and lunch for 2.3 million students each day. This efficiency hinges on the use of a popular model that allows one-third of the country's public school lunch programs to be auctioned to private food service companies. These private food companies are thus vaulted up in the global value chain, concentrating their power. Decreasing this private sector involvement and facilitating the direct availability of local and regional farmers' products for children's school meals is a formidable challenge. Dr. Ken's research investigates how women in agricultural production fare within this system. A light lunch will be served. Please RSVP to gwomen@gwu.edu.
