Exhibit: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallery, First Floor Spowls Hall

The Lively Arts

Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity.

The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.

Angels’ Wings is a holiday gift-giving program created to provide gifts for more than 2,000 children, elderly, and physically/mentally challenged people in the Indiana area. The program is coordinated at IUP by the Office of Service Learning.  

Tags can be picked up in several campus buildings November 18–22, 2019—just look for the evergreen tree and select a tag! By selecting a tag from the angel tree, you can help provide holiday gifts to children or adults in our community who otherwise wouldn’t receive one. Often, the adults who receive the gifts are disabled, veterans, or elderly. The tag will indicate the age and gender of the person, as well as ideas of the gifts that have been wished for. While recipients were asked to list what they’d like as gifts, you aren’t required to get all of the gift ideas. The program’s main goal is to make sure that all recipients have at least one present to open for the holidays.

Unwrapped gifts with the tag secured to the gift with tape can be dropped off at the HUB Atrium at the Angel Tree table from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on December 2 and 3, 2019. Gifts can also be dropped off in Pratt Hall 302 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on December 2, and from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on December 3. If you or your organizations are interested in assisting with the Angels’ Wings, please contact Brianna Faber at shfw@iup.edu or Angela Martinelli at martinel@iup.edu, 302 Pratt Hall, 724-357-2235.

Theater: “Rent”

Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center

The Lively Arts

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theater. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.

A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, Rent follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters love.

Get tickets here.
