See, this is not even right. Look away from the screen, pull up your calendar and make plans to go to the J Schnitz and see this work. I happened by J Schnitz director Jill Hartz' office yesterday just after it went up, and she took me up to see it. The painting is HUMONGOUS and completely dominates its little (very secure) room.

Jill Hartz, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Arts director, may be only a year and four months into her tenure, but her time at the UO has been filled with a mixture of cooperation and blocked paths. As staff prepare for a show she brought with her from Virginia " a show sure to resonate with the environmentalism of many UO students, staff and faculty " Hartz stays busy setting a course, or several, for the museum.
UO graduate student and curator Ashley Gibson is a woman on a mission. "I've always wanted to be doing something that fulfills my passion for the arts while at the same time addressing bigger world issues," she says, furiously typing into her laptop in effort to micromanage a mammoth workload.

The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art is currently displaying Composition (pictured), a work by American artist Mark Rothko, in the Schnitzer Gallery for American Art. Here are some interesting facts about this work and the artist (some of which is directly copy pasted from a press release):
Mark Rothko was born in Latvia and immigrated to Portland, Ore. in 1913. He attended Lincoln High School in Portland before he studied liberal arts at Yale University from 1921 to 1923, but left without getting a degree. In 1925 Rothko moved to New York, where he started studying at the Art Students League under Max Weber. His first solo exhibition took place at the Portland Art Museum in 1933. No artists in Portland know of this fact and, therefore, continue to copy Rothko day in and day out.

In addition to her curation of this exhibit, Gibson will be speaking at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, May 4, at the Schnitzer, elaborating on the show she put together. Though tight lipped about the content of her talk, Gibson mentioned that some of what she is going to discuss is the complex relationship between these nineteen different artists and their country of origin Cuba. "These artists have taken great risks and gone to great lengths to be subversive," she says. "It's important and fascinating to explore artists who are taking on a political system that sometimes does and sometimes doesn't choose to help or fund them."
