for Impaired Perceptions by Brian Steel
on display in the Lewandowski Student Gallery / McLaurin Hall
To kick off Winthrop’s October celebration of Disability Month, guest speaker, Brian Charles Steel will be on campus to speak September 16, 2015 along with an installation of his photographic exhibit, Impaired Perceptions. Born with short fiber syndrome, Steels’ black and white portraits of himself and other physically impaired people explores the concept of perception and socially constructed identity. Some of his subjects have physical impairments that are not visible, which further challenges the notion that seeing is believing.

Educational Programming for the Man + Land + Water exhibition in the Rutledge Gallery / Rutledge Building
is a feature documentary from multiple-award winning filmmakers
Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier, and renowned photographer Edward
Burtynsky. The film examines the relationship between mankind and
water. The filmmakers travel to various locations around the world --
from deserts, to tanneries, to one of the biggest dams in the world --
to showcase how the liquid shapes people's lives, as well as how
humanity affects this precious resource. A free global cultural event,
the screening of Watermark is open to the public and is sponsored by the DSU and Winthrop University Galleries.
A Question & Answer session will follow the screening. 2013, Canada, 92 mins.
documents floating abalone farms off China’s Fujian coast and the
construction site of the biggest arch dam in the world – the Xiluodu,
six times the size of the Hoover. We visit the barren desert delta
where the mighty Colorado River no longer reaches the ocean, and the
water-intensive leather tanneries of Dhaka. We witness how humans are
drawn to water, from the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach to the
Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, where thirty million people gather for a
sacred bath in the Ganges at the same time. We speak with scientists
who drill ice cores two kilometers deep into the Greenland Ice Sheet,
and explore the sublime pristine watershed of Northern British Columbia.
in stunning 5K ultra high-definition video and full of soaring aerial
perspectives, this film shows water as a terraforming element, as well
as the magnitude of our need and use. In Watermark, the viewer is immersed in a magnificent force of nature that we all too often take for granted - until it’s gone.
