University Art Gallery Presents: Joshua Martinez - Photographs

9am5pm

Location: University Art Gallery, Trinity Hall
Category: Arts, Theatre, & Music

Joshua Martinez is a San Francisco-based photographer who received his MFA from the California College of the Arts and his BFA from Humboldt State University. He has exhibited his work throughout Northern California. Martinez captures images that suggest adventures, experiences, and sensations but that also convey the impossibility of reproducing experience pictorially. By using processes that emphasize the photograph as object—large-format images, analog processes, and exposed paper edges—he seeks to connect with the experience of memory.

The University Art Gallery is located within Trinity Hall at CSU, Chico and is open during exhibits 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, please call 530-898-5864 or visit http://www.csuchico.edu/art/galleries/univgallery.html.

Brown Bag Workshop: Interpreting Requests for Proposals (RFP)

12pm1pm

Location: Student Services Center, Room 124
Category: Conferences & Workshops

No two grant funding solicitation guidelines are the same.  Some can be frustratingly inconsistent and ambiguous, intimating even the most knowledgeable researchers.  Tips on how to effectively interpret Requests for Proposals (RFPs) can help you steer clear of the common review pitfalls.  This knowledge may allow you to save valuable time and gain a competitive edge in your grant proposal.  For example, what are the six critical questions you and your team should ask as soon as you discover a funding opportunity?  This interactive session is geared toward faculty and staff grant seekers without advanced knowledge of RFP interpretation. Staff from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RESP) will orient beginning researchers and supporters of Project Directors in how to effectively review and respond to grant solicitations. 

MOVIE: Growing Cities

Growing Cities is a documentary film that examines the role of urban farming in America and asks how much power it has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat.
