:: Global Seminar final project presentations on Thursday

Antioch College students will present their final group project presentations for the Global Seminar on Food on Thursday, March 14, from 1:00 to 3:50 p.m. in McGregor 113. For more information contact kmcgruder@antiochcollege.org.

:: Employee Chat and Chew deemed a success

On March 1, more than 60 faculty and staff members gathered for the first ever all-employee Chat and Chew. The events, typically held on the first Friday of the month, are designed to improve internal communication, celebrate successes, address challenges, prepare for the site visit and have a little fun.

Attendees at this month’s event enjoyed gourmet pizza prepared by the campus chefs while listening to informal reports from various areas of the College. The event also provided an opportunity for employees to ask questions that were not addressed in the reports.

Forty-one employees responded to a post-event survey designed to gather feedback about the Chat and Chew. Key findings include:

  • 68% rated the event to be excellent or very good. An additional 30% said the event was fairly good (total of 98%)
  • 95% learned something new at the event
  • 82% are extremely likely or very likely to recommend the event to a colleague
  • 74% thought the information presented was extremely or very useful, with an additional 21% believing the information was moderately useful (total of 95%)

Open-ended comments revealed that attendees enjoyed the opportunity to interact with co-workers in an informal setting. Others appreciated the spirit, the frankness and the feeling of facing a challenge together.

While most praised the casual and free-flowing atmosphere, several would like a more formal outline or agenda. There was also a concern about possible overlap with information shared during Community Meeting. Additional insights included the need for:

  • Shorter reports
  • More Q&A time
  • More variety in food and drink choices
  • A different venue
  • Ending on time (though some appreciated the option to stay late to continue conversation)

Next month’s Chat and Chew is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, April 12. If you would like to request an update on a particular topic, e-mail Jennifer Jolls at jjolls@antiochcollege.org.

:: Opening of Appetite: An American Pastime

The Herndon Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Appetite: An American Pastime. The exhibition explores the following questions: What are the defining attributes of the American appetite and how do they appear in the landscape of contemporary culture? How have the desires of a quintessentially American outlook imprinted the global structure and what impact does it have on those who expect to freely participate within it?

The opening reception for Appetite: An American Pastimeis Saturday, March 16, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and the exhibition will continue through May 24.

This project is a curatorial collaboration between local installation and multimedia artist Michael Casselli, artists Eric Dyer and Maggie Hoffman, Raul Vincent Enriquez, Stefanie Koseff, and political/cultural theorist, Kurt Miyazaki.

Casselli, in his interest to create a more democratic model of curation, initiated the concept (APPETITE), and created visual structure (HOME) for his invited participants. It is an experiment through which the interior of the Herndon Gallery is radically transformed, and each participating artist has been given an interior “room” in which they stage their responses to the concept of “Appetite.” This physical/conceptual structure made possible the exchange of ideas between the participants and Casselli that were instrumental in creating the original work which will be presented within the reconfigured gallery space.

YS Arts Council announces The Crucible

Yellow Springs Center Stage proudly presents Arthur Miller’s “timeless” tale, The Crucible on March 15 and 16, at 8:00 p.m. Written as a response to McCarthyism, Miller’s story tells the harrowing but still resonant tale of the Salem Witch Trials. The play is considered part of the bedrock of American theater, and Center Stage is excited to bring its vision to local and regional audiences in the unique setting of the First Presbyterian Church of Yellow Springs.

Tickets are $10 at the door. Advance reservations are not available and seating is limited. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with audience members encouraged to arrive early to enjoy live ‘mood-setting’ music before the curtain rises. The Crucible is produced by Kay Reimers, on behalf of Center Stage, and directed by Lorrie Sparrow. This production features Brendan Sheehan, Kayla Graham, Ellen Ballerene, Aaron Saari, Thor Sage and Rob Campbell.

Founded in 1971, Center Stage is the community theater of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Center Stage is proud to produce both classic and new works in the creative community of Yellow Springs. Upcoming auditions for Center Stage’s next production, The Women (written by Clare Boothe Luce and directed by Rob Campbell), will be mid-March. For upcoming events, visit the Yellow Springs Center Stage Facebook page.
