Emergence: Art from Inside features work by twenty artists who are incarcerated at the Oregon State Penitentiary and the Oregon State Correctional Institution - both located in Salem, Oregon - as well as youth artists from Serbu Youth Detention Center in Eugene. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Visual Arts Team and the UO Prison Education Program, which provides for-credit UO courses and other academic programming at five adult and youth facilities in Oregon. The UO Prison Education Program was established in 2016, building on ten years of collaboration with the Oregon Department of Corrections to offer Inside-Out courses at Oregon State Penitentiary and the Oregon State Correctional Institution. Some artists represented in the exhibition have taken many classes through the UO's programming inside these institutions, while others have not. The goal of bringing these pieces together to offer the venue for the work and talent of incarcerated artists to emerge into a space of higher education. Likewise, the exhibition aims to offer a glimpse into the common threads and variations emergent across work being created inside, with an opportunity for incarcerated artists to describe what art making means to them. Emergence will be on view throughout Spring term. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 18th from 6-7pm here in the Adell McMillan Gallery.

Take Back the Night is a yearly international protest aimed at raising awareness about the realities of sexual and domestic violence on campus and in the community, both for survivors of sexual and domestic violence and those who want to support and bear witness in solidarity. Take Back the Night is a survivor-centered event that begins with a rally in the EMU Amphitheater, continues as a march through the streets of Eugene and ends with a Speak Out off-campus – during which survivors of sexual and domestic violence can share personal stories of how sexual and domestic violence has impacted their lives.
This free hour class is designed to enhance muscular strength, flexibility, and balance while centering the mind and reducing stress. We have the mats, all you need is yourself!
The day after Take Back the Night, the Wesley Center will be available for anyone as a safe place to process, restore, or just hang - either in quiet contemplation or in community with others. Arts and crafts and several rooms will be available. Refreshments including GF and vegan items will be provided.
Public lecture by Yana Rodgers, Professor, Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations, and Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, Rutgers University.
The long arm of U.S. domestic politics has reached the intimate lives of women all over the world because it has threatened major cuts in funding to healthcare organizations in developing countries if they perform or promote abortions. This “global gag rule,” so-called because to even mention abortion endangers funding, has been a hallmark of Republican administrations since it was first enacted by President Ronald Reagan. When President Donald Trump reinstated and expanded the policy, there was popular uproar and a firestorm of debate.
In this talk, Professor Rodgers argues that the gag rule has failed to achieve its goal of reducing abortions. Rather, the restrictive legislation is associated with higher abortion rates, and there are negative repercussions across a range of health outcomes for women, children, and men. She offers a more constructive and cost-effective approach for U.S. family planning assistance.
The Queer Ally Coalition (QAC) is a volunteer training workshop open to students, faculty, and staff who are looking for opportunities to expand dialogue and understanding for issues within the campus LGBTQIA+ community.
