Butler U’s Clowes Commemorates 50th Anniversary
Clowes Memorial Hall of Butler University will kick off a week-long celebration with the gallery opening of the 50th Anniversary Mosaic at 4 p.m. on October 20. The public is invited to an open house, featuring backstage tours of the newly restored theater, the unveiling of the mosaic and more.
Previously and newly created artistic pieces by Hoosier artists will be part of a large mosaic of visual art, entitled Reflecting the Past, Inhabiting the Present, Visualizing the Future of the Arts, that will adorn the south wall of the main lobby throughout the 2013-2014 season.
The scope of art in the entire spectrum of works will range from painting to photography, fabric art to kinetic pieces, mixed media to found object collections and more. Further, the artists are a varied, diverse group, all with deep connections to the Hoosier state.
Additional events throughout the celebration will include music, ballet and comedy, with performances by Colbie Caillat and Kenny Loggins, the Butler Ballet, Whoopi Goldberg and Pixar in Concert, performed by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
