Cuban-American artist exhibits in the ERC The Educational Resources Center (ERC) is pleased to present an exhibition by Cuban-American artist Wilfredo Calvo-Bono. The exhibition will be on display in the main “Art Gallery” of the ERC located on Level 1 of Columbus Hall through November 30.
In 1954, Calvo-Bono studied architecture at Havana University. In 1968 he initiated his artist work in Madrid using realism as his expression and gradually modified his work into geometric forms. He uses realism to expose negative environments, and abstract geometry to trigger reflective thoughts in the observer. Calvo-Bono’s works have been displayed and collected throughout the United States, Europe, and South America. In 2001 he received the Pollak-Krasner Foundation grant.
Fall Wellness Challenge –still time to enter
The Challenge is based on individual points. For every hour of a wellness activity in which you participate, you will earn five wellness points. This includes physical activity, wellness seminars, and wellness classes. For example, if you attended the October 31 cooking demonstration that was an hour long, you would record the date, seminar title, total time, and the number of points you acquired (in this example, 5 points). You will also need to get the signature of the individual conducting the seminar/lecture.
Where do you record your wellness activities and points? Just go to the campus wellness Web site and download the Wellness Challenge Tracking Form. For those who were diligent with their pedometers during the last Challenge you can still use them for this phase, too. Record your steps in a daily log (log templates are available through Nichole Bowman-Glover) and receive 5 points for every 10,000 steps.
The top twenty point-earners will receive prizes. There also will be prizes for the top point earners for October and November. All participants are responsible for recording and tallying their own point totals.
For those participants who would like to be considered for the October prize, please submit a copy of your October tracking form with everything totaled by Friday, November 9 to Don Laubenthal in the Human Performance Center, Delaware Hall Room 029. It’s not too late to join the Challenge by downloading a Tracking Form. Please contact Bowman-Glover at ext. 3989 or Laubenthal at ext. 3627 with questions about the Wellness Challenge.
