    Nathalie Miebach explores the intersection of art and science by translating scientific data from meteorology, ecology and oceanography into woven sculptures and as performance art. Basket weaving, her main method of data translation, functions as a simple, tactile grid to interpret data into 3-D space. The role visual aesthetics play in the translation and understanding of complex scientific systems is central to her work.  Miebach is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including a Pollock Krasner Award, a TED Global Fellowship, and a 2012 nomination for the World Technology Award. Her work has been shown in the US, Europe and Australia and has been reviewed by publications spanning fine arts, craft, design, science and technology. She lives and works in Boston.  The Weather’s Turning Weird… is the 2014-15 Tarble Humanities Exhibition and part of the EIU Center for the Humanities’ investigation of the concept “Authenticity.” See online at eiu.edu/tarble.

    Booth Library will host an exhibit titled "The Artwork of Russell Means" from April 13-May 15.

    About Russell Means (1939-2012): An American Oglala Lakota activist for the rights of Native American people and libertarian political activist, Russell Means became a prominent member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) after joining the organization in 1968. He helped organize notable events that attracted national and international media coverage.

    The artwork exhibited at the reception is on loan from EIU Alumnus Dr. Gordon Grado and his wife, Mary. Both are longtime admirers of Russell Means and recently acquired the artwork from the Means estate.

    Autism is the most common developmental disorder, effecting 1 in every 68 children (Center for Disease Control, 2014). The disorder has a major impact on families living in east central Illinois. The Eastern Illinois University Women's Softball Team has partnered with the Autism Center to sponsor an Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 18, 2015 in conjunction with a double-header softball event at Williams Field. Children with autism and their families are invited to join the community at the softball games and enjoy fun activities throughout the afternoon. McAfee Gymnasium is the alternative site for the activities in case of inclement weather! Plan to come and cheer on the EIU Softball Team, enjoy the festivities, and help raise awareness of the special challenges faced by individuals with autism spectrum disorder.

    • Softball games are scheduled at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.
    • Autism Awareness T-shirts are available for purchase in advance and everyone wearing one will be included in a group photo and balloon release on the softball field between games
