Since graduating from Harvard in 2003, installation artist Liz Glynn has earned an M.F.A. (California Institute of the Arts) and has had exhibits in New York, Austin, San Francisco, and Los Angeles (now her hometown). She has had art residencies at O’Artoteca in Milan and the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida. Glynn has also picked up representation at galleries on the East and West coasts. Her work is featured in “Sculpture,” an exhibition through March 5 at the Paula Cooper Gallery in Manhattan.But Glynn has taken time off to work again in the Carpenter Center, the iconic modernist Le Corbusier building on Quincy Street where she spent four years doing studio work as a student in Visual and Environmental Studies (VES). Through Saturday (Feb. 5), Glynn is this year’s Josep Lluis Sert Practitioner in the Arts, a visiting artist position in place at VES since 1986. The idea: welcome a working artist for a week of intense interchange with students.For such a busy person, Glynn chose to do something that is at least suggestive of rest. Her “Corbusier Furniture Project” involves building two replica tubular steel chairs modeled after the great Swiss designer’s leather-covered LC-2 fauteuil grand confort, petit modèle — or, “great comfort sofa, small model.” One is in place already, in the Carpenter Center’s main gallery, where Glynn’s work joins that of two other VES graduates in a show called “Object Lessons” (through Feb. 20). The other, with the help of her students, will be ready Thursday (Feb. 3).But don’t expect comfort from what Glynn calls “On the Museum’s Ruin (Morris Hunt – Corbusier – Piano),” 2011. This LC-2 is made of a replica frame and five cast blocks of rubble from the Fogg Museum renovation going on next door on Quincy Street. It’s spiky and lumpy. And don’t sit down on it anyway. Despite tipping the scales at 400 pounds, the chair is not designed to bear weight.But the chair is designed to remind Harvard that its traditional architecture met the “aggression of modernism” not long ago, said Glynn. And the Carpenter Center is the highest expression of that modernism on campus, she added — a welcoming, affecting space despite its stark layout and concrete structure. “I fell in love with it.”But a cast chair is never just a cast chair. It’s a learning opportunity. To make the first chair, Glynn experimented with 16 different formulas to cast the blocks of rubble into usable blocks. She’ll pass on what she learned to her 15 students, and add in lessons on the history of the casting and concrete from ancient to modern times.
An incident of dating violence was reported to a University administrator Tuesday, according to the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log.The alleged crime occurred last Friday in a men’s residence hall, according to the log entry. The complaint will go through the Title IX review process.According to du Lac, the University’s code of conduct, dating violence is defined as “physical violence or the threat of physical violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with an individual.”The existence of a relationship is determined on “factors such as the length and type of relationship and frequency of interaction between the persons involved,” du Lac states.Tags: dating violence, du lac, NDSP crime log, Title IX

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sagamore Hill, the Oyster Bay home of Theodore Roosevelt, is slated to reopen July 12 following a four-year, $10-million renovation of the 26th president’s home that served as his “Summer White House.”The extensive restoration of the historic landmark included replacing the roof, repairing the mansion’s foundation and rewiring the electric system, officials said. In addition, all of TR’s 12,000 belongings were individually removed, repaired and cleaned before being put back where they once were.“We’re really happy about [the reopening],” said Philip Blocklyn, executive director of the Oyster Bay Historical Society. “Its being closed for over three years was kind of a temporary loss for Oyster Bay, not just in American history, but on the local stage.”Special events planned for the reopening Sunday include speeches from Roosevelt family members, children’s activities, a cavalry demonstration and performances from the Sagamore Hill Band. Visitors will also be able to use an interactive photo booth and view historic carriages and antique cars at the famous mansion.Kathleen Bart, the author or A Tale of Two Teddies, will be signing copies of her book and says she is proud to be a part of the day.“This event will be a terrific tribute to all things teddy!” Bart said. “Most of my research was done [at] Sagamore Hill, home of the teddy bear’s namesake, Teddy Roosevelt.”RELATED STORY: Long Island’s Teddy Roosevelt: King of the HillSagamore Hill was the setting for countless historical events such as visits from foreign dignitaries, talks that would eventually help end the Russian-Japanese War and the death of TR himself. The mansion is the only home that Roosevelt actually owned, and he often spoke of how he enjoyed Sagamore Hill more than the White House. He and his wife are buried about a mile away from the estate.Among those most excited to see the renovations is James Foote, a Theodore Roosevelt re-enactor who will make a speech in character following a ribbon-cutting ceremony. He said that the renovations were meant to look like nothing had changed at all.“They installed better lighting in the house, so you’ll be able to see everything a little better,” Foote said.In addition to the physical improvements made to the home, visitors can expect some alterations to the park’s rules and policies. Visitors older than 16 will now have to pay a $10 entrance fee, while children 15 and younger will have free entrance to the park.“After carefully considering the impact of a fee increase on visitors and community members, we came to the conclusion that this is the right course of action to improve facilities and services important to visitors” said Kelly Fuhrmann, superintendent of the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site. “Even with this small fee increase, a tour of the Theodore Roosevelt House is still one of the best recreational values on Long Island.”Visitors can use Sagamore Hill’s new online reservation system to purchase up to eight tickets in advance. Most individual tour tickets, as well as unreserved online tickets, will still be available to walk-up visitors, according to the National Park Service.

“I care about her. Morning, noon and night, I care about her. … Camilla is who I want. That is where my loyalties lie. That is who my priority is,” he screams at Diana in the finale. “I refuse to be blamed any longer for this grotesque misalliance. I wash my hands of it. If you have a complaint about not being loved or appreciated in this marriage, I suggest you take it up with the people who arranged it.”The Crown writer and executive producer Peter Morgan previewed the fourth season ahead of its debut, opening up about the challenges.“It’s very hard to write the innocent start to a relationship when you know how tragically it ended and indeed how unhappy they were throughout it,” he told TVLine.- Advertisement – Charles and Diana married in July 1981 and had two children, Prince William and Prince Harry. In 1992, the duo separated and four years later, they announced their divorce after both admitted to extramarital affairs. The following year, the princess died in a car crash in Paris.In this season, Charles is “a man desperately trying to get out of this mess,” O’Connor, 30, said about the arranged marriage. “These are two very lost souls … They both needed something they couldn’t give each other, and it didn’t work.”Scroll through the gallery below to see which moments in season 4 did — and didn’t — happen in real life. Throughout the first episode, which spans over three years, Charles told his father he was more interested in Camilla Parker-Bowles — but Prince Philip did not approve.Over the course of the season, their relationship experiences intense turmoil, including multiple blowout fights about Parker-Bowles, who he later married. It also appears that the marriage was completely set up by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, rather than out of the love in Charles’ heart.- Advertisement – It’s no secret that Princess Diana and Prince Charles‘ marriage wasn’t a happy one. If you had any doubt, once you watch season 4 of The Crown, that will be gone.The Princess of Wales (Emma Corrin) makes her debut on the Netflix series during the season premiere, meeting Prince Charles (Josh O’Conner) while he is visiting her older sister, Sarah.

The WHO said five surveillance teams in Uige were continuing to investigate rumors and search for more cases. In Luanda, Angola’s capital, international experts are working to set up an isolation ward to take up to 40 Marburg patients, AFP reported. The story said volunteer workers at Americo Boa Vida hospital are being fitted with “Ebola suits” to work as cleaners and washers in the isolation ward. Officials said it would take several more days to complete the ward. Apr 5, 2005 (CIDRAP News) The outbreak of Marburg hemorrhagic fever in Angola has continued to grow and has killed 155 of 175 people infected, according to the latest reports. There is no vaccine or cure for the Marburg virus, which spreads through contact with bodily fluids of infected people. Resembling the deadly Ebola fever, Marburg causes severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, severe chest pain, sore throat, and cough. In later stages it leads to gastrointestinal and other bleeding. The outbreak is the largest Marburg epidemic on record, exceeding one that hit the Democratic Republic of the Congo from 1998 to 2000. Angolan health minister Sebastiao Veloso gave those numbers in an Agence France Presse (AFP) report yesterday. In a statement yesterday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the Angolan health ministry had reported 163 cases with 150 deaths. A joint statement by the Angolan government and WHO said 80% of the cases were in children under the age of 15, according to the AFP report. Earlier reports had said 75% of the cases involved children. No explanation of the unusual age distribution has emerged so far. The northern province of Uige remained the center of the outbreak, the WHO said. Cases also have been reported in Luanda, Cabinda, Malange, and Kuanza Norte provinces, but all were thought to have originated in Uige.

Advertisement William Saliba and Gabriel are yet to start alongside one another for Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Summer signing Gabriel Magalhaes has made an encouraging start to his Arsenal career, but eyebrows were raised when he was missing from the starting XI against Liverpool on Monday night.The Brazilian centre-half won the man-of-the-match award following an impressive debut against Fulham on the opening weekend of the new season, despite having trained on only several occasions with his new team-mates. Gabriel impressed again in the narrow 2-1 home victory against West Ham, but the return to full fitness of David Luiz saw the former Chelsea star’s Brazilian compatriot dropped to the bench at Anfield. William Saliba, meanwhile, is still waiting to make his senior debut following his return from a loan spell at Saint-Etienne. The Gunners beat off strong competition to sign the French centre-half last summer, but were forced to return him to the Ligue 1 club as pat of the deal.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTThe 19-year-old, who was handed Arsenal’s iconic No.4 squad number, could make his bow in the Carabao Cup against Liverpool tomorrow having been an unused substitute in the same competition last week at Leicester. Comment Advertisement David Luiz was restored to the starting line-up as Arsenal were beaten 3-1 at Anfield by Liverpool on Monday (Picture: Getty)Arsenal fans had hoped to see the pair form a burgeoning partnership from the get-go, but according to the Daily Telegraph, Arteta has been hesitant to pitch the new additions to his squad into battle and would never have selected Gabriel for the match at Craven Cottage had it not been for a central defensive injury crisis. Arteta’s insistence on his defenders playing out from the back is a style of play new arrivals require time to perfect, while both players are attempting to overcome a significant language barrier.Still, the Arsenal manager’s decision to leave Gabriel out of the firing line on Monday was heavily criticised by club legend Tony Adams who was baffled by the 22-year-old’s omission as the Gunners lost 3-1 and surrendered their 100% start to the new campaign.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
