The Week Ahead @ The Henry

We are a third of the way through November so we wanted to check: How’s your novel coming? How’s your moustache coming?

That’s great! Keep up the good work!

Is this Greek to you? November hosts two great social movements: one to encourage people to write a novel called National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and another to promote men’s health called Movember. We dare you start one today!

National Novel Writing Month 2013

A Weekend of Words, Writing & Music

Take a break from your NaNoWriMo writing and be inspired by Travis Jeppesen. He is a novelist, poet, art critic, and playwright currently touring the US for the release of his new novel, The Suiciders, published by Semiotext(e).

Words & Music: Travis Jeppesen and Wirekid (Philip Guichard)

This Friday, November 15 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Henry Auditorium see Jeppesen and Wirekid will perform live. Get tickets for the reading/performance HERE

Workshop: Object Oriented Writing

Join us the next day (Nov 16) from 1:00 – 4:00 PM for a writing workshop with Jeppesen.

Jeppesen describes the process of Object Oriented Writing as “a new form—neither poetic nor art-critical, yet retaining characteristics of both . . . [this writing] positions itself within the work of art, and [includes] all the necessary contradictions and impossibilities embedded within such an approach.”

Get Healthy with Us this Movember

Take a break from growing your Movember moustache and check out these two great events to calm your mind and get your heart racing.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindful Awareness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Extensive research has proven that mindfulness is an effective way to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.

Meditations begin promptly at 12:30 on Thursday. Registration is not required, please check in at the Henry’s front desk for location information.

Circuit Training with Lacy Draper

Then on Sunday from 2-3 PM, exercise your body and mind with local artist and UW MFA alumna Lacy Draper. Part museum tour and part boot camp, each active session will focus on a single theme—such as architecture, discernment, identity, or documentation—and explore a work from each exhibition through the lens of that theme.

Space is limited, please register HERE.

Ongoing Faculty Lecture Series: Rebecca Cummins

Photomedia Associate Professor Rebecca Cummins will discuss her work at this free event from 6:00 – 7:30 PM on Thursday. This lecture is part of the UW School of Art tenure and promotion process. It accompanies an exhibition of Cummins’ artwork at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery on view from November 15th.
