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.
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.

Functional repair of aging and injured intervertebral discs Dr. James C Iatridis, Professor and Vice Chair Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Lehman Auditorium Science and Engineering Hall 800 22nd St NW Degenerated human intervertebral discs (IVDs) are commonly associated with low back pain conditions including stenosis, herniation, and axial back pain. There are few minimally invasive treatments available to treat and repair painful IVD degeneration and axial back pain. Painful IVD degeneration is associated with structural disruption, chronic inflammation, and neurovascular ingrowth deep into the IVD and all of these conditions must be addressed to promote function and inhibit painful conditions in the spine. This talk focus on 3 studies. Study 1 investigates aging and mechanical changes to the IVD structure that result in painful conditions. Study 2 describes repair strategies for injured and herniated intervertebral discs. Study 3 investigates potential therapeutic strategies derived from notochordal cells. We use a variety of biomechanical, cell culture, and animal models. The talk will provide the audience with an understanding of the clinical, biomechanical, and biological demands required to address this complicated and multifactorial disorder James C. Iatridis, PhD is Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Orthopaedics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. James’ research is focused on the development of treatments to prevent and repair degenerated and painful intervertebral discs. He has investigated problems in the spine since 1994, has published over 100 papers in the orthopaedics and engineering fields, and has won several awards including the US Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2008.
