    Marc Chagall, one of the most distinctive artists of the 20th century, is known for his colorful paintings, many of which are based on east European Jewish folklore. He was born in Vitebsk, Belarus, into a traditional Hasidic Jewish culture.   As a Jewish artist, Chagall broke new ground by illustrating the Hebrew Bible. Chagall’s vision of the Old Testament combines his Jewish heritage and modern art, providing a rich display of symbol and imagination. Among the pieces in this exhibition there are 10 of the 105 etchings originally intended to be illustrations for an Old Testament Bible and 24 brilliantly colored images from his 1956 and 1960 suites of Bible lithographs. This exhibition is on loan from The Bowden Collections. See online at eiu.edu/tarble.

    The Women’s Studies Program at EIU will host an evening of Performance Poetry featuring Xánath Caraza and Ladan Osman.

    Xánath Caraza is a traveler, educator, poet and short story writer.  Carza’s first book-length collection Conjuro was awarded second place in the Best Poetry Book in Spanish category and honorable mention for Best First Book in Spanish at the 2013 International Latino Book Awards. She was named number one of the 2013 Top Ten “New” Latino Authors to Watch (and Read) by LatinoStories.com. Conjuro combines Spanish, English, and Nahuatl (language of the Aztecs) to create a continuous spell of verse. Caraza’s writing derives from her awareness of indigenous thought.

    Ladan Osman is a Somali-American poet and teacher. Her poetry is centered on her Somali and Muslim heritage, and has been published in a number of prominent literary magazines. In 2014, she was awarded the annual Sillerman First Book Prize for her collection The Kitchen Dweller's Testimony. Osman’s chapbook, Ordinary Heaven, will appear in Seven New Generation African Poets: A Chapbook Box Set.

    This event is part of EIU’s Women’s History and Awareness Month (WHAM) activities, and it is co-sponsored by EIU’s Women’s Studies Program, African American Heritage Month Committee, and UBoard.

    Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker will be the topic of an exhibit and program series at Booth Library.

    The exhibit “Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker: The History and the Legend” will be on display from Feb. 7 to April 9. In addition, a series of related programs and film screenings are planned Feb. 20-23.

    The saga of Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker is well-known in Texas history, but the story really began in East Central Illinois. Cynthia Ann’s grandfather, Elder John Parker, her uncles, Benjamin and Daniel Parker, and other members of the family were among the first white settlers of what became Coles County.

    In about 1833, several members of the Parker clan moved to Texas and created Fort Parker there. A few years later, a band of Indians attacked the fort, killing many and kidnapping a few of the children, including Cynthia Ann, age 9.

    Cynthia Ann grew up as a member of the Comanche tribe, married one of the chiefs and bore three children; the oldest was Quanah, who later became the last Comanche chief in America.
