ART EXHIBITION - thru May 15

Art Exhibition - Thru May 15  | M-Th   10aa - 4:00pm  |  FA100

"Another Run Along The Path or When Dada Meets I-Ching"

The Artwork of Michael McCall - This exhibition is two fold: the work is based on the artist's study of and research into the I-Ching (a.k.a. The Book of Changes). It also explores Mysticism, Art History, Information Systems, Labyrinths and Mazes, combining these with McCall's acute sense of humor, in presenting a paridoxically calm and dizzying exhibition.

Bike to Work Day is May 15.   Pledge online at http://www.metro.net/projects_studies/bikeway_planning/biketowork/images/btwd_pledge_form_eng.pdf and receive a free patch kit (while supplies last) and be eligible to win cool prizes.
