May 14: HR Matters Series: “Go Ahead, Take Your Vacation Time”

11:30 am - 1:00 pm, Meridian Technology Center. More than 55% of American workers didn’t use all their paid vacation time last year. Why is this? Reasons are all over the map – too much work to do, the perception that no one else can do their job, or they can’t afford the vacation they’d really like to take. Where this choice often breeds lower productivity and eventual employee burnout, planned time away from work leads to rejuvenation, reflection and stronger relationships with the most important people in their life. On May 14, as part of the ongoing HR Matters series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Anna Irwin will present Go Ahead, Take Your Vacation Time. During this session, Irwin will dive into the details of how to successfully prepare for and get away from your workspace, how to optimize your time away and how to re-enter your work routines feeling renewed and recommitted. Registration is $15 per session and includes lunch. For more information or to register for the upcoming HR Matters series visit meridiantech.edu/HRMatters or contact Marcy Luter at marcyl@meridiantech.edu, (405) 377-3333 ext. 297 or toll-free at (888) 607-2509.

We walk a tightrope between our drive for independence and our need for one another. In our work we seek to highlight this paradox by creating a dance collage that uses imagery through gestures, ritual, tableaux, and text to explore personal and social narratives. Our art promotes awareness of the individual within the collective community. We believe that stories and personal narratives provide an opportunity to connect the one to the many by making the I, we. In dance that very concept has the potential to leave an audience inspired or hopefully maybe even changed. Click here for tickets and more information.

All Month Long:

Intentional Exposure: Photography from the Permanent Collection

Tues, Fri-Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm Wed-Thur 11:00 am – 7:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  Curated by students of Dr. Louise Siddons  Featuring works by well-known photographers Gordon Parks, Sally Mann, Arnold Genthe, Imogen Cunningham and Robert Doisneau, Intentional Exposure invites visitors to think about what these photographers conceal and reveal.  What is in their frame, what lies beyond it?  Through exploration of historical context and technical choices, Dr. Louise Siddons' students shed light on what is represented in each image — and viewers are invited to draw their own conclusions about the stories being told.  Exhibit will be on display April 2 – June 1, 2019

50 States: Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas, and Wyoming

Tues, Fri-Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm, Wed- Thur 11:00 am – 7:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  Part of an ambitious series of installations being developed by Houston-based artists Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin, 50 States is an ongoing, fifty-part series that highlights recently-undercovered or under-appreciated LGBTQIA+ histories from every state in the nation.  Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin explore the connections between LGBTQIA+ histories and contemporary queer experiences in the United States.  50 States is an ongoing series of installations made in response to little-known LGBTQIA+ histories from each state predating the 1969 Stonewall riot that launched the modern LGBTQIA+ rights movement.  This multi-decade endeavor engages critically with perceptions of history and community in a time where our culture’s views of gender and sexuality progress at an astonishing pace while provoking deeply troubling social and legislative backlashes.  Their research draws from recent groundbreaking academic work, the artists’ archival research and significant time spent learning from and collaborating with local LGBTQIA+ community members.  In addition to their installations, the two artists create intricately hand-cut works on paper in which they layer LGBTQIA+ imagery over found road maps then selectively cut away the layered “land” to reveal a delicate system of roads and waterways beneath.  Inspired by anatomical drawings of the human vascular system, the cut maps assert that the iconography of the LGBTQIA+ community has a deep, corporeal connection to the nation’s geographies.  Exhibit on display through June 29, 2019.
