The Fools of April: Paintings and Mixed Media Sculpture by David White

First Street Gallery
Humboldt State University's First Street Gallery presents The Fools of April: Paintings and Mixed Media Sculpture by David White April 6 through May 19.

An alumnus of Humboldt State University, David White is a Northern California artist best known locally for his permanent installation in Humboldt State University's Art Department.

Within the show visitors will find themselves in the company of many characters; some are puppets, some are sculptural and others are in portrait paintings: each one highly colorful and with a unique personality.

These characters lead the viewer through the gallery, radiating lightheartedness and cracking jokes between each other. A majority of the pieces have titles that start with the words, "The man who…," and then White fills in the remainder of the title with a free associated phrase inspired by the character he is depicting.

Undergraduate History Conference

HSU Campus
The 2013 Undergraduate History Conference, presented by students in HIST 394, will take place Saturday, April 6.

Students will present their research projects from 8:30 a.m to 5 p.m. in FH 178 and FH 179, and the keynote address will take place at 5:30 p.m. in FH 118.

Keynote speaker Dr. Kristin Hoganson, a professor of History as well as Gender and Women’s Studies at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will present “Tales of the Berkshire Hog: How an Anglo-Saxonist Pig can Help Us Reconsider the Roots of the Modern American Empire."

This talk takes on the conventional wisdom about the agricultural roots of the modern American empire by focusing on the case of the Berkshire hog. The story of this animal – stretching back to the appropriation of the Indian corn that became the staple of its diet and forward to its role in nourishing British power – helps reposition the so-called heartland at the crossroads of empires. In addition to drawing some conclusions about Anglo-Saxonist pigs, this presentation will include some reflections on picking and pursuing historical research topics. Please contact the History Department for the conference program, so as not to disrupt any presentations.
