E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

On a typical hot and humid New York City night in the summer of ‘69, a diverse group of queer outcasts gathers at The Stonewall Inn. However, on this night, when the police show up for a routine raid, all are thrust into the frontlines of history. A riot ensues that would launch the LGBTQ+ movement in America. With an original rock n’ roll score, emotional poetic language, and gritty choreography, Hit the Wall pays homage to these revolutionaries who came together 50 years ago to fight for their freedom.

This production contains sexual content, sexual violence, violence, and adult language. Please note that this production includes language that is charged in connection to race, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression. Theatrical haze, fog, and strobe lighting effects will be used.

Talk: “Constructing Narratives” with Tyanna Buie @ Art Building West, room 240
Feb 4 @ 7:00 pm

Tyanna Buie, Grant Wood Fellow in Printmaking, will explore the expansive processes of printmaking and print media, while focusing on the trajectory of the representational, iconic, and symbolic references present in the works, as well as how the personal becomes political.

A Chicago and Milwaukee native, Tyanna Buie earned her BA from Western Illinois University, and her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Buie received an emerging artist Mary L. Nohl Fellowship in 2012, and the 2015 Love of Humanity Award from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, the prestigious 2015 Joan Mitchell Painters & Sculptors Grant, and the 2019 Kresge Artist Fellowship/Visual Arts in Detroit, MI. Buie has attended artists-in-residency programs such as the Joan Mitchell Center (New Orleans, LA), The Women’s Studio Workshop (Rosendale, NY), and the Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT). She maintains a connection to the community by hosting printmaking workshops and demonstrations, while participating in Healthy Neighborhood Initiatives through the production of public art created for underserved neighborhoods in Wisconsin. Buie’s work has been acquired by major national institutions and private collections and her work has been reviewed on Hyperallergic.com and featured on Essayd.org. Currently, Buie lives and works in Detroit, MI, where she is an assistant professor and section chair of printmaking at the College for Creative Studies.

Stanley Museum of Art First Friday: “Art Caucus” February 2020 @ FilmScene on the Ped Mall
Feb 7 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us for Happy Hour + Art at the next Stanley Museum of Art First Friday reception at FilmScene on the Ped Mall!

Our February First Friday, “Art Caucus,” honors Iowa electoral tradition and welcomes artist-neighbors to jockey and jostle for a place within a pop-up exhibition. Five pre-registered artists will serve as “precinct captains” and will anchor the community pop-up exhibition. Local artists (residing within 50 miles of Iowa City) are invited to bring a single work of political art to display. First Friday friends, come vote for the art grouping that aligns most with your political sensibilities!

Stanley First Fridays provide an ideal chance to usher in your weekend, enjoy the work of local artists, and mingle with other art enthusiasts. Events are FREE and open to all with complimentary popcorn and a cash bar.

Consider becoming a Stanley member! Courtesies include home delivery of the Stanley Museum of Art Magazine and a personalized membership card, which entitles you to free entry to the Figge Art Museum and reciprocal admission to other art museums around the country.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the SMA in advance at 319-335-1727.
