Celebrating The Streak
Visit wabash.edu/streak for details on events celebrating THE STREAK: three years of serious football domination, 24 consecutive games unbeaten from 1979-1981. Serious legends deserve serious celebrating.
*Make time to stop by the Eric Dean Gallery in the Fine Arts Center to see the Connectivity: Technology and the Natural World exhibit. In Array, John Douglas Powers explores multiple mythologies, from classical antiquity to 8-bit video games, via mechanical sculptures and static objects. His work interfaces with nature through a dialogue about landscape and natural patterns. Claudia Esslinger uses optical panels to obscure and reveal an abstracted vision of the sublime, while simultaneously using electronic controls to threaten its diappearance.
