Teach for America Multicultural Event: Malcolm X Institute 109 Horace Turner Classroom (1st Floor), 12:00PM - 1:00PM
In America today, the circumstances children are born into predict the opportunities they will have in life. Our education system was not designed to enable all children to realize their potential or achieve their dreams. Sixteen million children in the U.S. live below the poverty line. Twice as many children of color are born into poverty than are white children, and only 14% of children growing up in poverty will graduate from college within 8 years of graduating high school. While no single solution is enough to bring about an equitable and excellent education for all children, Teach For America has learned over three decades that dramatic progress is possible. Lasting change takes bold, grounded leaders working together, inside and outside of schools, fighting for the aspirations of children and their families. Join TFA recruiter Cara Vendeville for lunch to learn how Wabash men, and students of color in particular, can make a difference in lives of children as Corps Member Teachers. All majors and class years welcome to attend and learn more about TFA – a top employer of Wabash men many years running! RSVP Required in WabashWorks. Lunch Provided. Business Casual Dress.

In Blurred Boundaries, Amber Cobb examines the primal and sensual nature of sexuality, a familiar subject throughout her practice. The works in this exhibition address her intertwined relationship to the physical and psychological through abjection, attraction, and humor. The most recent series, features decorative patterns and softly draped forms that expose the spaces between a sweet kiss, hard grip, and violated flesh. Through a spectrum of color and texture, each work references the many phases of bruises from initial impact to healing. Other works feature Cobb’s arsenal of materials: mattresses, stuffed animals, and bedding. Through a process of layering and abstraction, found objects morph into the human form, they are familiar yet strange. Finally, rubber biomorphic forms poke at the absurdity of gender roles and sexual innuendos, they are all at once titillating, hilarious, and offensive. Blurred Boundaries is both inviting and confronting, a collection of emotions calling the body into question.
