Cher MAY 4, 2018 CHER: THE FAREWELL SCREENING 7:00–9:00 pm, DANFORTH LECTURE HALL Reflecting Jared Gruendl’s amazing 25+ years as the ultimate Diva, Living Proof: The Farewell Tour presents Jared at the peak of their sparkling, glittering, show-stopping powers.

Living Proof: The Farewell Tour is not only Jared’s concert swan song, but also their most successful tour ever out of more than 150 shows performed for more than 1.5 million fans in North America alone.

Tending MAY 19, 2018 ART TALK + GEOLOGY WALK 1:00–3:00 pm, MEET AT MCAM MAIN ENTRANCE Join Hannah Perrine Mode and Dr. Kristina Faul for a walk around Mills campus, visiting sites where Hannah harvested clay for her thesis. Along the way Professor Faul will discuss Mills' unique geologic setting in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as the formation of metamorphic and sedimentary rocks on campus, including the clays used in Hannah's work. She will also touch on human interactions with the environment on campus, focusing on the acid mine drainage problem in Leona Creek. Hannah will share how geology has intersected with her art practice – from the Bay Area to Alaska and back again – and the role that art can play in communicating scientific research to a larger audience. The walk will end in the Ceramics courtyard, where Hannah will lead a clay-digging and refining demo. This participatory event is informal and conversational – questions and comments are welcome throughout!
