Antioch College to host dedication ceremony for Curl Gymnasium

Antioch College will host a brief dedication ceremony and plaque unveiling at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6, at the Wellness Center. At the direction of the Antioch College Board of Trustees, the East Gym will be rededicated as Curl Gymnasium during the ceremony, after Joe Curl, former Antioch College baseball coach. Faculty, staff, students, alumni and Yellow Springs community members are invited to attend.

Curl served more than 20 years as an Antioch College employee and member of the Village Council. From 1893 to 1905, he coached the Antioch baseball team, then known as the “Yankees of Southern Ohio,” and is known to be the first African-American to coach an all-white intercollegiate team. He gained fame as a catcher, playing on the same team he coached. The Antioch community remembers Curl for his character and dedicated service to the College.

About the Instructor:

Monica Hasek’s light-hearted approach encourages everyone to feel at home on the mat. Her teaching style emphasizes safety, focusing on healthy alignment of the spine and joints. She infuses the ancient teachings of the yoga sutras and life affirming tantric philosophy into her teachings, inspiring all to be their best.

Monica is a registered yoga teacher at the ERYT-500 level with the National Yoga Alliance. She has been teaching since 2003, where she owned and operated Yoga Springs Studio and also developed a Teacher Training program in accordance with the NYA and has certified over 40 teachers.

“Yoga has inspired me to be more patient, less judgmental, and both compassionate and daring. These areas of my self were previously undiscovered before I first placed my hands on a yoga mat. The practice of asana has cultivated a strength and stability that has both changed my body and my perspective of it. Also, I have become more balanced emotionally. I now look for the good in people and situations, carrying this positive outlook even towards myself through consistent forgiveness and fresh starts.Yoga has inspired me to cherish the moment, whether snuggling with my daughter or saluting the sun rising on the beach. As I bend forward and back, as I lean from right to left, and as I turn in and shine out, yoga ultimately inspires me to be me.” —Monica

AgriCULTURE Closing Reception

Full Moon Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5th, 6:00–9:00 p.m.
Exhibition runs from March 5–May 15, 2015

The Herndon Gallery at Antioch College is pleased to announce the opening of its newest exhibition, AgriCULTURE. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 5, from 6:00–9:00 p.m. in collaboration with Antioch Farm & Kitchens. The exhibition will continue through May 15, 2015. All events are free and open to the public.

AgriCULTURE ties into several relevant and innovative Antioch spring quarter curricular offerings including Global Seminar on Food and Ecological Agriculture, and marks the beginning of the Antioch Farm and Kitchen's growing season.

Antioch College Instructor of cooperative education, Beth Bridgeman, who has been instrumental in developing agricultural-based student co-op placements, conceived of the idea of an exhibition focusing on food production. Bridgeman shared the idea with Herndon Gallery creative director, Jennifer Wenker, an eco-artist, public health nurse and organic farmer, who welcomed the opportunity to curate such an exhibition. AgriCULTURE grew out of that rich dialogue and developed with curatorial support from former creative director and resident scholar, Dennie Eagleson ’71, the arts faculty at Antioch, and a staff and student curatorial team.

A closing reception will be held May 15, 2015, 7:00–9:00 p.m., with a public talk by visiting artist and sculptor, Jeff Schmuki. He will invite the public to harvest and help cook the fresh greens (bok choy and collards) in his delightfully hopeful, futuristic hydroponic sculptural work, Homestead III, as it weaves between the columns of the Herndon Gallery’s lower gallery exhibition space.

Additional talks, events & programs are still being developed in collaboration with Antioch College faculty and participating artists. Please be sure to check the Antioch College website for updates as they develop:
