http://www.csun.edu/artgalleries

Artist Reception: Sat. September 7  4-7pm

Gallery Talk: Mon. September 9   10am

Iconic Los Angeles pop artist and graphic designer John Van Hamersveld's inspirational collection of drawings will be showcased in his upcoming exhibition Drawing Attention.

Drawing Attention will highlight forty-five years of Van Hamersveld's visionary drawings in a remarkable 3,000 square foot exhibition and provides a special opportunity to see his personal drawing collection in one cohesive package. This exhibition highlights the depth of his work, his core consistency, and his evolution as an artist.

The eighty-four images in this extensive exhibition are expected to include the Billabong Pipeline Wave, Bono as the "Million Dollar Rock Star," Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Eric Clapton, the New Composer series with Mozart and Beethoven, Grateful Dead skull, the "Buffalo Skull," American Stussy Revolution series, the Indian Chief, the Stomping Grounds movie poster, and the abstract "Box Paintings."

Accompanying the exhibition is a stunning 160-page book, entitled Drawing Attention by John Van Hamersveld.

Renowned graphic designer and a founding member of New York's legendary Push Pin Studios, Seymour Chwast writes the insightful and enlightening foreword to this book.

Drawing Attention draws forth the compelling context for an intriguing discussion in regards to schools of thought about the power of drawing as a way to develop oneself as an artist. Using the mighty pen throughout his career, Van Hamersveld brings his designer's identity to his signature.

Love is Colder Than Death, 1969 -- 88 mins.

Image for CSUN-al Gardening: Explore What Makes an Audubon Habitat GardenCSUN-al Gardening: Explore What Makes an Audubon Habitat Garden

9:00 am - 12:00 pm - TBA
http://www.csun.edu/botanicgarden

In this time of extended drought and watering restrictions, Southern California residents are searching for lawn alternatives that donât sacrifice visual appeal.

Drought-tolerant plantings, especially those utilizing California natives or Mediterranean-climate species, can provide color, texture, and beauty while reducing water usage and benefiting the local fauna.

California State University, Northridge's next CSUN-al Gardening Series class will explore how, by converting a yard or lawn into an Audubon Habitat, a sanctuary for both wildlife and people, homeowners can reduce water, fertilizer, and maintenance needs, and at the same time create a welcoming setting for birds, butterflies, and humans.

Speaker Alan Pollack, Audubon-at-Home Chair for the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, will share his love of wildlife and gardening. Pollack has successfully converted his own yard into a National Wildlife Federation-certified "Backyard Wildlife Habitat" site. He will answer questions about creating a garden that is attractive to wildlife, as well as humans, and conserves water.

"By using California natives and other drought-tolerant plants, homeowners can reduce not only water and fertilizer usage, but also maintenance time," said Brenda Kanno, manager of CSUN's Botanic Garden, which hosts the series. "Using these plants to convert a lawn into an Audubon Habitat will provide a beautiful, colorful setting for the family and local fauna to enjoy."

Registration for the class is required. Email botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

The Cal State Northridge Botanic Garden is operated by the university's Department of Biology and serves as a field site for botany, entomology, photography, painting and other classes. In addition to outdoor landscapes and natural botanic environments, the garden also features greenhouses where noteworthy botanical specimens are grown. The garden is open to the community.

10:00 am - 11:00 am - Oviatt Library, Ferman Presentation Room
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/archiving-the-unspeakable/

Guest Speaker: Dr. Michelle Caswell, Assistant Professor of Archival Studies in the Department of Information Studies at UCLA

The Khmer Rouge ruled Cambodia for less than four years. In their brief but devastating rule, approximately 1.7 million people died from untreated disease, starvation, and execution. For many, the regime's brutality has come to be symbolized by a series of black-and-white mug shots taken at the notorious Tuol Sleng prison, where thousands of "enemies of the state" were tortured before being sent to the Killing Fields. Based on a soon-to-be published book, this talk will trace the social life of these photographs through the lens of archival studies, arguing that these images are records first and foremost and that archival institutions are playing a key role in preserving and providing context to these records.

Whity1970 --  95 mins.

Perhaps the most iconoclastic Western ever made, Whity is simultaneously entertaining and deeply disturbing. Here Fassbinder takes on the most conventional of Hollywood genres, exposing and subverting its iconography and myths from the inside out.

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

Featuring Omara Portuondo, Guajiro Mirabal, Barbarito Torres, and Eliades Ochoa, with special guest Robert Fonseca

Since its introduction to an international audience by American guitarist Ry Cooder, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club has become a worldwide sensation. Over a decade's worth of touring has only increased the group's enthusiasm for performing to packed houses and their sound has remained utterly fresh since the release of their debut album in 1997.

The band continues to thrive with the addition of skilled musicians and legendary Buena Vista Social Club alumni such as trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, vocalist Omara Portuondo and laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres, who are passionate about Cuban music. Each put their individual stamp on classic styles such as the son montuno, danzón, cha cha cha, bolero, and Cuban jazz. Talented young pianist Roberto Fonseca opens the evening with a program of deep, soulful and expressive Latin jazz notes.

Psychology - ABA Speaker Series

Please join the Psychology Department for the next talk in the Applied Behavior Analysis Speaker Series

Dr. Daniel B. Shabani, BCBA-D, President, California Association of Behavior Analysis presents

Verbal Behavior Analysis - The application of Skinner's functional analysis of verbal behavior (1957) has been a hallmark of early intervention for children diagnosed with autism. Numerous studies have identified a variety of useful teaching strategies, transfer of stimulus control procedures, and the independence of specific verbal operants. In putting these empirically validated findings into practice, a more thorough understanding of the variables that influence responding during language training are sometimes overlooked, particularly for children who fail to acquire conditional discrimination skills. An analysis of these variables and how they may impact verbal behavior is the focus of this presentation.

Daniel Shabani received his Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University following an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles and a master's degree from the University of the Pacific. Currently, Dr. Shabani is the president of the California Association of Behavior Analysis and runs a private practice in Southern California. He has authored a number of publications on assessment and treatment of behavior problems, as well as reviews of trends within the field of behavior analysis. Dr. Shabani's current research interests include the assessment and treatment of severe behavior problems, verbal behavior, and instructional design

KCSN Presents

In 1975, when Emmylou Harris recorded her first major label solo album, Pieces of the Sky, after the death of her singing partner Gram Parsons, she chose a song by a virtually unknown songwriter to open the album. That songwriter was Rodney Crowell, who Harris also recruited to be a guitarist and harmony singer in her backup group The Hot Band. Since that time, although they have gone their own ways professionally with great success -- both are Grammy Award-winners -- they have remained good friends. That 40-year friendship has brought them full-circle to record their debut project, the recently released Old Yellow Moon. This performance brings on stage two great artists whose contribution to American music continues to inspire musicians and fans worldwide.
