Monday, October 17, 2016 - 3:30pm
Booth Library, West Reading Room, Charleston IL

Tarble Arts Center and Booth Library present:

Book discussion led by Tarble Art Center's Director, Rehema Barber on Claudia Rankine's "Citizen: An American Lyric." This discussion is part of Booth Library’s fall exhibit and program series, “For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.”

All are invited to participate in a discussion of “Citizen: An American Lyric,” a 2014 book by American poet Claudia Rankine. “Citizen” is described as both criticism and poetry. In it, Rankine shares examples of racial aggressions – some intentional and some seemingly slips of the tongue -- in the media and in daily life, including in the classroom, at the supermarket and on TV.

The first 15 who register in advance for the discussion will receive a complimentary copy of the book to read prior to the event (additional copies are available for checkout). Rehema Barber, director of the Tarble Arts Center, will lead discussion of the book at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 17 in the West Reading Room of the library. To register for the book discussion, visit http://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/civilrights/discussion/.

Spurlock Museum, 600 South Gregory, Urbana

In 1916, the UIUC Museum of European History acquired a remarkable set of high-quality reproductions of major monuments of early Irish metalwork art, including the Tara Brooch, Ardagh Chalice, the Cross of Cong, and the shrine of St. Lachtin's arm. These superb pieces were part of a larger collection created in very small numbers by the Dublin jeweler Edmond Johnson for the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. They are important not only as museum-quality reproductions but also in their own right as specimens of the art of the Celtic Revival and of modern "medievalism." In this exhibit, many pieces of this collection will be displayed alongside nineteenth- and twentieth-century facsimiles of illuminated Irish vernacular and Latin manuscripts on loan from the UIUC Library—works that have been fundamental to scholarship on medieval Irish studies in the past century and a half.
Exhibit runs until April 2, 2017. Museum Hours: Tuesday: 12 - 5; Wed-Fri: 9 - 5; Sat 10-4; Sun 12-4; closed Mondays. Free admission. Contact: Ksheahan@illinois.edu or (217) 244-3355.
