  4. 2017 Annual Art History Spring Lecture  Please join us for a special presentation on “Indigenous Women Artists in the Age of Truth and Reconciliation” by Dr. Megan Smetzer. Innovation and creativity have always been central to the cultural expressions of Indigenous women. New ideas and materials, introduced throughout the history of settler colonialism, were used to continue important cultural practices in increasingly difficult contexts. This process remains a crucial means for critiquing, resisting and transforming the still fraught interactions between Indigenous peoples and newcomers. A number of exceptional Indigenous women artists are utilizing diverse media to foreground Indigenous worldviews as a way to heal their own communities as well as illuminate the consequences of our entwined histories for a wider public. Thursday, March 2, Library building, room LB217

  7. Thoroughly Modern Millie! — An Exit 22 Company Production, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the delightful story of a small-town girl who travels to New York City in 1922. Amid the flapper lifestyle, the social whirl and with the new idea of women entering the workforce, Millie invents a new life for herself. She decides on the ‘thoroughly modern” aim of marrying for money and not for love. She sets her sights on the new boss and moves into a rooming house, which is unfortunately run by the female leader of a white slavery ring in China. Hilarity ensues. With catchy tunes, energetic dance numbers and thoroughly loveable characters, Millie is an enchanting night out for the whole family. – Wednesday, March 15 to Saturday, March 25, The BlueShore at Cap
