Image for In Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social ActionIn Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social Action

Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/in-protest/

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.

We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

Gabriel Cabezas has fast become one of the most talented young cello players performing today. Born in 1992, he made his world debut with the Cleveland Orchestra when he was only 15 years old. Since then he has performed as soloist with Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the New World Symphony, the Florida Orchestra, the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, the Nashville Symphony, and a host of other prestigious classical orchestras. The Oregonian describes him as "...an intense player who connects to the music naturally, without artifice, and brings a singing line to the cello." His debut on our Great Hall stage is one of the season's most anticipated performances.

Image for Straighten Up and Fly Right: The Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis & John PizzarelliStraighten Up and Fly Right: The Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis & John Pizzarelli

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/straighten-up-and-fly-right-the-nat-king-cole-tribute-featuring-ramsey-lewis-and-john-pizzarelli/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first "Straighten Up And Fly Right" soared up the charts in 1943. As a singer, he was called "the best friend a song ever had," but he was essentially a jazz performer at heart. Even those later tracks crafted for the pop charts belie a piano technique, vocal phrasings, and on-the-mark orchestration that are indebted to his early roots in jazz. Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop, from his hits along with those singular tracks of sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced their own careers.

Commerce of Creativity Distinguished Speakers Series featuring Judy Baca

Judy Baca -- artist, educator, scholar, activist, and community arts pioneer -- has crafted an inspired career using the visual arts in service of equity for all people. After earning her CSUN Bachelor's in Art in 1969 and Master's in Art Education in 1980, she developed an international reputation for her integration of ethics and creative expression in educational and community-based art methodologies. Her C2 lecture, titled Excavating Land and Memory through Public Art, will focus on her artistic practice of community engagement and cultural development.


Ms. Baca has worked at UCLA's Cesar E. Chavez Department of Chicana/o Studies since 1996.  She founded the first City of Los Angeles Mural Program, which evolved into the community arts organization known as the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC).  She continues to serve as the artistic director at the UCLA@SPARC Cesar Chavez Digital/Mural Lab, employing digital technology to co-create collaborative mural designs.

All students, faculty and staff are invited to attend this free lecture, followed by a Q&A.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of fun and sidesplitting laughter at the Valley Performing Arts Center with Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award-winner Lily Tomlin. "With astounding skill and energy, Tomlin zaps through the channels like a human remote control. Using a fantastic range of voices, gestures and movements, she conjures up the cast of characters with all the apparent ease of a magician pulling a whole menagerie of animals from a single hat," says the New York Daily News. This unique comic artist takes her audience on what the Washington Post calls a "wise and howlingly funny" trip with more than a dozen of her timeless characters from Ernestine to Mrs. Beasley to Edith Ann. Don't miss this warm and uniquely affecting experience filled with comical insights and wildly, witty observations about the human condition.
