Hunting in Wartime: Screening + Q&A with Director Samantha Farinella
Thursday, 11/9/2017 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Traina Center for the Arts, Razzo Hall - Free and Open to the Public
Hunting in Wartime profiles Tlingit veterans from Hoonah, Alaska who saw combat during the Vietnam War. The veterans talk about surviving trauma, relating to Vietnamese communities, readjusting to civilian life, and serving a government that systematically oppresses native people. Their stories give an important human face to the combat soldier and show the lasting affects of war on individuals, families and communities.
There are many films out today that profile veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hunting In Wartime has the long-range perspective of how a soldiers life was affected long after the war ended, giving us a glimpse into what present-day soldiers may confront in the future. The film portrays a stark reality of the human cost of war.

Opening Reception "The Wall" By; Gregory Thielker
Wednesday, 1/24/2018 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
Schiltkamp Gallery, Traina Center for the Arts - Free and Open to the Public
New York City based artist (and former adjunct faculty member at Clark University), Gregory Thielker, will create an interdisciplinary exhibition dealing with the topic of "The Wall" and the tensions surrounding the border territory between the United States and Mexico. The symbolism of "Wall" and the messages it conveys - even as an abstract construct - will be addressed in this installation of small paintings, large-scale mural, and artifacts from Thielker's travels along the border. The artist states, "The exhibit is meant to ask questions about the border and its impact on individual experience and national identity."
