New Core offering: Facilitated dialouge on Dana Lynn Louis: Clearing

November 10, 2014

Core 585  (.5 credit)

Title: A Conversation on “Clearing”

Date and time:  November 16, 2-4 pm

Instructor: Tod Sloan

Location:  South Chapel, Graduate Campus, Lewis & Clark College

Please join us for a facilitated dialogue on “clearing,” the subject of the 2014 Lewis and Clark Hoffman Gallery show by Dana Lynn Louis. This afternoon of conversation features a panel discussion with Ms. Louis, followed by small-group discussions in which you are invited to participate. We will explore the varied meanings of ‘clearing’—as understood through our professional practices, through our personal experiences, and through our impressions of the artwork on exhibition. In particular, we hope to trace links between art, social justice, and the natural environment.

Panelists include: Kathleen Malone (legal consultant, American Society for the Positive Care of Children; professor in international criminal law, Lewis & Clark), Ethan Seltzer (professor in the School of Urban Studies and Planning, and interim director for the School of Art+Design, Portland State University), Howard Silverman (instructor in systems thinking, Pacific Northwest College of Art). The afternoon’s facilitator will be Tod Sloan (professor of counseling psychology, Lewis & Clark).

Clearing is on exhibit until December 14.  Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit Please visit the exhibit before attending the dialogue.
