Join the UCG for an artist lecture with Monica Bauer as she presents, “Art. Class. Nation. Location.” Bauer will be lecturing on the collective inspiration and subject matter of artist’s Bev Beck Glueckert, Cristine Pinney Karkow and her own work. She will also discuss how she addresses issues of social justice through her work. This lecture is the closing event of the 2012 UM Day of Dialogue.
The Day of Dialogue is excited to be partnering with the Faculty Development Office to include this session on the particular needs, strengths and challenges of students who are the first in their family to pursue Higher Education. Faculty are invited to join the conversation as a panel comprised of a student, a support staff person and a professor discuss strategies for helping our first generation students succeed. This session will take place on Wednesday, October 24th and will allow faculty to also attend/participate in any of the regular sessions on the following day.
Join University Dining Services as they participate in the Day of Dialogue! Ian Finch will host a panel on sustainability at 2:40 PM in the UC Commons. Access to nutritious food, the ability to grow food and process it locally, and barriers to political change are issues we face in shaping the future of how to feed ourselves. This panel will investigate the theory and practice of Community Food Security (CFS), defined as “a situation in which all community residents obtain a safe, culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet through a sustainable food system that maximizes community self-reliance, social justice, and democratic decision-making” (Hamm &Bellows 2003) The discussion will be steeped in homegrown, innovative initiatives that bring our community together to create a more sustainable local food system from field to fork.
Additionally, the UC Food Court Commons and the Cascade Country Store will have visual displays showing various examples of stereotypes in food (specifically advertising) related to culture, race, and sexuality. Viewers will be invited to leave their comments on various boards where we'll seek your opinion and comments. Exhibits will be up from 10am - 5pm in both locations on the Day.
The lives of those in the LGBT Community are more evident in today’s media, but what of the past? This exhibit will take you through a journey of the past, displaying the portrayal and lives of LGBT community members through various forms of media: newspapers, television, and others. By presenting the LGBTQI community in a civil and informative manner, we invite our friends and neighbors to see everyone as individuals above the stereotypes.

This exhibit will display the steam roller prints prepared for the annual Day of the Dead parade. The Missoula version of Day of the Dead was founded by artists Bev Beck Glueckert and Mike deMen, in 1993. Professor James Bailey then had his print making students create large scale steam roller prints for the Day of the Dead parade. These one of a kind works will be on display the day before the Day of Dialogue on October 24 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm outside the school of art.
