Jay Zerbe - Abstract Juxtapositions Chicago Artist Zerbe Exhibit at HS Library, Feb 1-April 30.
The University of Colorado Health Sciences Library will be hosting a display of small-scale collages by Chicago artist Jay Zerbe in its 3rd Floor Gallery. The show, Abstract Juxtapositions will run from Feb. 1 through April 30th. On display will be about 40 items dating from the last ten years. According to Zerbe, “Collages, just by their (usual) small scale, invite an intimate relationship, with the artist as well as the viewer. Unexpected relationships develop because of the juxtaposition of materials used. Intuitive decision-making is inherent to the process. Painted papers, graphite, ink, crayons, acrylic paint, found paper, and archival prints of my original materials and photographs generated and altered via the computer comprise my collage resources.” The 2nd edition of a survey publication of Zerbe’s collages from 2003-2012 is now available at lulu.com. Plan to visit the Library and experience this intimate, immediate show.

The Health Sciences Library is very excited to be hosting the Art in Science | Science in Art exhibit in our Gallery. The exhibit will be on display through the end of August. Art in Science | Science in Art is a juried exhibition of images made by University of Colorado-affiliated scientists and artists. Scientists were asked to submit images they had made as part of their everyday work. Artists whose images illustrate or offer insights into scientific principles were also asked to take part. Of the hundreds of images submitted, thirty were selected by a national jury to be printed in large format, framed, and hung in a traveling show. Since opening in 2007 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science the exhibit has traveled to Colorado, Mexico and New York City. Art in Science | Science in Art is curated by Helen Macfarlane, MA and J. John Cohen, MD, PhD, of the University of Colorado School of Medicine, with financial support from the CU President’s Fund for the Humanities.

Dr. Paton will explore the diagnoses offered over the years and discuss how Darwin was able to cope with his illness and excel as one of the intellectual giants of the past centuries.
Date: Tuesday May 3, Time: Noon, Location: Reading Room
Religion and evolution: why they still haven’t reconciled - Dr. Jeff Kieft
Many mainstream religions have accepted the truth of evolution, and the world’s most trusted scientific bodies have stated that there is no inherent conflict between faith and evolutionary theory. Despite this apparent reconciliation, the battle lines are still drawn and they remain focused on ‘God vs. Darwin.’ Why? Dr. Kieft has spoken about evolutionary theory and taught its importance at churches and community forums in Colorado, Kansas, and Missouri; in this presentation, he will present some of his observations, experiences, and thoughts as to why the argument continues.
This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the NIH Office of History.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman and The Yellow Wall-paper
In the late nineteenth century, at a time when women were challenging traditional ideas about gender that excluded them from political and intellectual life, medical and scientific experts drew on notions of female weakness to justify inequality between the sexes. Artist and writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who was discouraged from pursuing a career to preserve her health, rejected these ideas in a terrifying short story titled “The Yellow Wall-Paper.” The famous tale served as an indictment of the medical profession and the social conventions restricting women’s professional and creative opportunities. This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. Courtesy The Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University.

The first juried exhibition had an abundance of submissions so there are two shows to accomodate all of the artists.
September - October - Look what I found in the basement! Revealing PC computer stuff you haven’t seen in years!! Bernard A. Karshmer, MBA, Ph.D., Professor of Applied Dentistry and Orthodontics The Look what I found in the basement! exhibit features several generations of personal computers - some dating back to the 1980s. In about twenty short years the computer has morphed from room-sized mainframes with limited computing power to ever smaller notebook and subnotebook models with astounding computational power. The physical history of this metamorphosis has been kept on shelves and boxes in computer enthusiast's basements. While most are still functional, they have little or no place in 21st Century computing. None-the-less, these memorable machines are interesting and allow us a serial snapshot of the evolution of the tool that
has revolutionized science, art and literature.

April 22, 2009 - When should science be censored? The Pernkopf Atlas - A case in point
Pernkopf's atlas has been considered one of the important anatomical atlases since the work of Vesalius. However, research in the mid 1990's has led to the conclusion that Pernkopf used bodies of victims executed by the Nazi's for his drawings. What does this mean for this atlas? Should it no longer be used? Or is using the atlas a tribute for those that were killed? For libraries, "the ALA Bill of Rights states that 'materials should not be excluded because of the origin, background, or the views of those contributing to their creation.'" What responsibility does the library have in regards to this atlas? Join us for a discussion about the various ethical issues surrounding this atlas in teaching, education and librarianship.

January – March - Waterways by Jude Morales
Jude Morales, a local Denver artist and UC Denver graduate, has works entitled “Waterways” in the Health Sciences Library’s Third Floor Gallery. Waterways is a collection of pieces inspired by the Cherry Creek pathway as it runs through downtown Denver and the Platte River pathway that stretches across lower downtown Denver (LoDo). These waterways are lifelines of the city of Denver and are surrounded by the eclectic mix of architecture, both old and new, that emanates the city’s personality. Each piece has been constructed using a collage technique on wood. As a result, texture, depth and patterns are showcased.
