Art Exhibit: Graphic Solidarity: The Internationalist Outlook of the Cuban Revolution (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Graphic Solidarity: The Internationalist Outlook of the Cuban Revolution features posters produced in Cuba during the period following the revolution through the 1980s. The posters highlighted in this exhibition focus on Cuba’s efforts to spread the messages of their revolution worldwide and to inspire others in the fight against oppression stemming from the legacy of imperialism and colonialism. Primarily published by the OSPAAAL organization based in Havana, these works helped to facilitate the internationalist outlook and message of the Cuban revolution through their inclusion in the Tricontinental Magazine which reached people in more than 60 countries worldwide.  The works in this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Lindsay Webster, Spartanburg, SC.  Curated by Katie McCorkle, this exhibition is a culmination of her year-long Art History and Government honors project.

Location: Richardson Family Art Museum

Art Exhibit: Sacred and Secular: Netherlandish Baroque Paintings from Regional Collections, Richardson Family Art Museum (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Dynamic and theatrical, but also down-to-earth, moralizing, and sometimes comic.  Triumphant, grandiose, and propagandistic, and yet also intimate and inward.  All of these terms are applicable to the art of the European Baroque, the cultural epoch of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries which produced an unprecedented richness and variety in creative expression.  Complex and conflicting forces across the political, religious, economic, and social spheres of life account for this artistic abundance.  The Netherlands, a major center of artistic production during the Baroque period, was home to many of these contrasts and conflicts within its relatively small geographic boundaries along the northern coast of Europe.

These diverse cultural forces are evident, in varying ways and degrees, in a selection of paintings generously lent to Wofford College by the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery in Greenville, SC, the Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, SC, and the Robicsek Family Collection in Charlotte, NC.

Mathematics Colloquium, Olin 101 (Academic)
Description: Dr. Anne Catlla will give a talk titled, "How Mathematicians Can Detect Gerrymandering". In recent years, mathematicians have found themselves invited into a new room ? the courtroom. As lawyers and judges attempt to answer the question of how much gerrymandering is too much gerrymandering, mathematicians have stepped up with tools based on Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods, random walks, and statistics. In this talk, we will examine three mathematical tools that have appeared in recent gerrymandering court cases: the efficiency gap and two outlier analyses. For each of these techniques, we will see how the approach works in light of certain democratic values and how each has been received by the courts, and we will delve more deeply into the mathematics of the random walk analysis. There will be a reception from 2:30-3:00 pm in Olin 204, followed by the talk from 3:00-4:00 pm in Olin 101.
