    Come one, Come All! This interactive exhibit surrounds you in conditions that people deemed as "freaks" faced everyday.

Inspired by narrative illustrations, mythology, memento mori, and historical occult imagery, the work visually describes intangible emotions such as loneliness, revulsion, sacrifice compassion, and the universality of death. Ritual also refers to the act of daily drawing, a sometimes mindless repetition of pattern and line, which is a meditation in itself. Light refreshments will be served.

    Neighbors for Public Justice was formed shortly after the November 2016 election. They aim to “inform and support one another in our individual and collective efforts to promote social justice on a local and global level, equip one another with practical, positive ways to communicate and engage with local, state, and national government, and empower one another to be advocates for all people."

    Neighbors for Public Justice meets every Thursday evening at the Friends Memorial Church, 418 W Adams Street, in Muncie from 6pm to 7pm.

    Studio Exhale
    103 N. High St.

    Studio Exhale will host an opening reception by artist Angie Ridge Hedman entitled “Chaos and Ease.” Hedman is currently a high school art teacher at Monroe Central. She began working on this diverse body of work when she changed jobs after teaching at one school for 17 years. The change of schools was stressful for her, and painting allowed her to quickly get her emotions onto the canvas. 

    She prefers working with acrylics because of the accessibility, affordability, and quick drying process. The medium allows her to apply several thin layers of paint in a limited time. Hedman always has an in-progress painting going on in her classroom because she feels students learn and appreciate more if they can be an active witness and participant in the art process. It is important for them to see her as both an artist and an educator. If they see her taking creative risks in art, they might be inspired to do the same.

    "Peace Mob" Set to Descend on University Green
    Contact: Emily Mastroianni (BSU Center for Peace & Conflict Studies)
    285-1622; peacecenter@bsu.edu

    Traditionally, April has been a violent month in the United States with events including, for instance, the Columbine High School shooting, the Virginia Tech University massacre, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the Waco (Texas) Davidian Standoff. To promote a message of nonviolence during April 2011, the Ball State University (BSU) Center for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) in collaboration with BSU's Oxfam Chapter and several other student organizations are hosting a Peace Fair on Wednesday, April 13.

    The Peace Fair will begin at noon with a "flash mob" (i.e., the sudden assembly of a large group of people) event sponsored by the CPCS in which at least 100 BSU faculty, staff members, and students will stand in formation to create a human peace sign on the University Green. Participants also will release environmentally friendly balloons in remembrance of individuals in the United States who have been affected by violence in the past and to promote a day of peace on our campus.

    To participate in the human peace sign, please email Emily Mastroianni (peacecenter@bsu.edu) by Friday, April 1st or sign up at:

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/a/bsugmail.net/viewform?hl=en&formkey=dFhtNXNqaHBsRzRSdnlUTWRRREJzaFE6MQ#gid=0

    For the remainder of the afternoon on April 13, students and other members of BSU can visit student organization sponsored booths and participate in activities focused on world poverty. Along with the CPCS and Oxfam, the following student groups will host activities, including tie-dying and henna tattoo art, at the Fair: Amnesty International, the Social Justice League, Nuru at Ball State and several others. Please email Megan Whitacre at oxfambsu@gmail.com if you are interested in hosting a booth. Learning more about poverty is one-way students can take a step towards being peacemakers both on campus and in the community.

    This is the third consecutive year that the BSU Peace Center has hosted an event in April to promote nonviolence as a positive alternative to resolving conflict. During the month of April, Bracken library will host a book display on the topic of peace featuring peace activists and peace movements.
