Science on Tap: Cicadas

Free State Brewing Co. 636 Massachusetts Street, Lawrence KS
While many of us in Kansas associate cicadas with the heat of July and August, not all cicadas appear annually. Some have 13 year cycles, others 15 and even 17.

This year, cicadas that were last seen in 1998 will emerge again in May. Join Robert Hagen of the Field Education Coordinator of the KU Environmental Studies Program a for a discussion about these interesting insects.

Nerd Nite: Research Speed Dating Edition

Cider Gallery: 810 Pennsylvania Street, Lawrence, KS, 66044
Bring your curiosity for a night of rapid research conversations with KU experts. Participants at this event will have 10 minutes each round to get a snapshot of each researcher’s area of expertise, ask questions and move to the next table — and the next topic. Meet a librarian who knows all about bumper sticker culture and a science fiction writer who also happens to be an amateur astronomer and back-yard engineer. Talk to a herpetologist who just returned from studying reptiles in Madagascar, an anthropologist who knows about Neanderthals and their jewelry, plus a curator of art who seeks marriages of art to physics, religious studies, history and psychology. Round out the evening with a scientist who studies brain-computer interfaces, and an expert in technology that helps people who have speech-language disorders. Beer, wine and appetizers provided. Experts include: Whitney Baker, Kate Meyer, David W. Frayer, Richard Glor, Chris McKitterick, Sara H. Sack and Jonathan Brumberg. A free state festival event.

Accidental Mysteries Exhibition at the Mulvane Art Museum

Mulvane Art Museum, 1700 SW College Ave. Topeka KS
The Mulvane Art Museum is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition Accidental Mysteries. The exhibition will run from May 22 through August 1, 2015, with an opening reception Tuesday, June 9, 2015 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

It’s probably a good bet that everyone has taken a snapshot in one way or another in their lifetime. In fact, with the digital revolution firmly established, more pictures are being made today than ever before in the history of the medium. The snapshots in this exhibition are paper artifacts from the 20th century of picture-making by everyday people. The images on display are quite varied, and including serious picture-making attempts to serendipitous moments.

John Foster has been collection vernacular photography for over 15 years and is happy to share these images with Washburn University and the greater Topeka community.

The Mulvane Art Museum is located at 17th and Jewell Streets on the campus of Washburn University. The hours of the Museum, ArtLab, and Gift Shop are Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday 1-4. Admission to the Museum and ArtLab is free and open to the public. Free parking is conveniently located to the west of the Mulvane.

The images on display are quite varied, and including serious picture-making attempts to serendipitous moments.
John Foster has been collection vernacular photography for over 15 years and is happy to share these images with Washburn University and the greater Topeka community.
Brown bag Lunch: June 10, 2015 noon to 1pm

"Finding Vivian Maier," movie screening at the Mulvane Art Museum

Mulvane Art Museum, 1700 SW College Ave. Topeka KS
In conjunction with our exhibition Accidental Mysteries, the Mulvane Art Museum is happy to present: “Finding Vivian Maier,” the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious Chicago nanny who took over 100,000 photographs in her lifetime. Maier never exhibited her work, and lived a very secretive, private life. Her work was discovered in a storage locker a few years after her death in 2009 and has been hailed as masterful and extraordinary. As an untrained, amateur photographer, Vivian Maier is considered today to be among the greatest street photographers of the 20th century. Two of Vivian Maier’s original snapshots from the Foster collection will be exhibited at the exhibition. The film is free and open to the public.

The Mulvane Art Museum is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition Accidental Mysteries. The exhibition will run from May 22 through August 1, 2015, with an opening reception Tuesday, June 9, 2015 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

About this program:
Preschool age children begin discovering the wonder of the Flint Hills where they live, but look beyond the city limits in their exploration.

Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join their preschooler for all the fun at no additional cost.

Pre-registration is required. Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 10 children so please register early!
