Tonight, there will be a discussion at ArtSpace Gallery on “Connection or Obsession: A Healthy Relationship with Social Media.” This will be a talk about what the “experts are saying about the dangers of overdoing our screen time, and we’ll strategize about ways to use these tools in the healthiest way possible.” The Healthy Potluck (bring a dish to share, list all ingredients) begins at 7; discussion goes from 7:30-8:30. A small donation is suggested. Continue reading 'September 2015 Events'»

Glory Kim talks about his research on the fetal membrane ultrastructure of Kingsnakes

Trinity’s Summer Science Research Program, which started in May, wrapped up last week. Approximately eighty students conducted research, gave presentations, and had the opportunity to hear what alumni were doing.

The final day featured five presentations by six students, with two of those teams looking at the ketogenic diet. Audience members were able to ask questions following the brief presentations, with some questioning various researchers’ methods, a practice that pushes learners toward more sound decisions in the future.

Several of the students indicated that their research is ongoing. Shelby Labe and Laura Nee Continue reading 'Science Students Opt to Spend Summer on Campus'»

West African Textiles at Trinity

comments Comments Off on West African Textiles at Trinity

Dozens of cloth pieces adorn the walls, hang from the ceiling, or are folded neatly in display cases in the Widener Gallery at Trinity College. This may sound like a standard stroll through the mall, but the textiles are all from West Africa, on loan from multiple collections.

The items on display are woven, stamped, appliqued, and resist-dyed textiles, made from cotton, rayon, and wool. One tunic is also composed of goat skin and colobus monkey fur.

A man’s smock, from Cameroon, combines woven fiber with human hair. The ceremonial garment would have been worn at funerals for VIPs.

Wrappers and blankets vary from colorful, to subdued, to simply indigo and white.

The It’s a Wrap exhibit hasn’t wrapped up yet– you have until March 14, 2015 to view the textiles in the Austin Arts Center.

On March 5th at 3 p.m. a gallery talk will be held in the Widener Gallery. Continue reading 'West African Textiles at Trinity'»
