    Arts and Performances

    The Arts Circle. Your destination for the arts at Northwestern. With world-class exhibitions and performances, the Arts Circle welcomes patrons, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the larger community alike. It’s easier than ever to take in many wonderful and diverse experiences, all on one campus.

    Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Program (NUPOC) Gallery-Paintings by Ann Speltz: Roots and Nurse Trees – The Only Constant is Change Mon, 7/1 to Sat, 8/31, 9:00 AM-4:45 PM, free NUPOC, 680 North Lake Shore Drive, Suite 1100, Chicago Contact: R.J. Garrick, [email protected], 312-503-5700 Speltz's visits to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Preserve in Singapore and to the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, WA, inspired these 5 canvases. The works suggest processes of growth, dissolution and regeneration, offering an opportunity to pause and reflect on Nature’s ceaseless cycle of life, death and rebirth. Among her paintings, Speltz depicts a colonnade of trees that germinated and took root in nurse logs, created when a forest tree falls, decays and provides a strata where seeds can germinate. After a nurse log has disintegrated, it will have nurtured the mature trees that grow along the path where it fell. The roots in Speltz's paintings represent a point of entry into a chthonic world that is both literal and mythic. Prior to focusing on the visual language of painting, Speltz has a lifetime immersion in the language of books and verbal communication. She studies painting at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts and lives in Chicago, IL.

    Northwestern Music Academy Learn more online

    Other Courses (offered throughout the school year)

    Piano and Organ The Music Academy Piano Division offers pre-piano class, which serves as an introduction to more formal piano instruction: keyboard instruction in two tracks for students ages 6 to 18, and instruction for adults. Pre-piano serves as an introduction to more formal piano instruction. Keyboard instruction for children begins with pre-staff music and expands to landmark-based intervallic reading. After the first year of study, most children participate in the Illinois State Music Teacher's Association curriculum assessment, where they demonstrate skills and receive certificates and pins for participation.

    Strings The String Division offers private lessons in violin, viola, and cello, with goals of both providing musical instruction and instilling a love of music and of learning music. The division believes that all children can learn to their potential when placed in an environment that includes clear instruction, an involved parent, and regular opportunities to listen to and perform. Voice (adults) Adult voice classes concentrate on basic vocal technique including registers, breathing, range, and diction. Unique teaching methods and small class size (4 to 5 students) produce good results after a short period of time. The class is recommended not only for people interested in singing, but also for adults who would like to improve their speaking voice. Private voice lessons also available

    Hidden Figures is the true story of the black women mathematicians at NASA who helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. In the book, Shetterly celebrates these unsung heroes, teasing out issues of race, gender, science and innovation against the backdrop of WWII and the Civil Rights Era.

For the first time this year, all first-year and transfer students will receive an eBook copy over the summer. The author of the book, Margot Lee Shetterly, will be on campus October 17 at both the Chicago and Evanston campuses. One Book One Northwestern is a community‐wide reading program hosted by the Office of the President. It aims to engage the campus in a common conversation centered on a carefully chosen, thought-provoking book. It began in 2005 for students in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and has since evolved into a community-wide program involving students, faculty and staff from all majors and departments. Everyone is encouraged to read the One Book selection. The Office of the President sends a free copy to incoming first-year and transfer students the summer before they arrive on campus. Throughout the year, events like lectures, films, and discussion groups provide an opportunity for individuals to gather and talk about the issues presented in the book. Many of these events are open to the public and the entire community is invited to participate. Visit the Participate section to learn how you can get involved.

    Margot Lee Shetterly Biography Writer, researcher, and entrepreneur Margot Lee Shetterly is the author of “Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race," which was a top book of 2016 for both TIME and Publisher’s Weekly, a USA Today bestseller, and a #1 (instant) New York Times bestseller. The film adaptation of her book was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Shetterly is also the founder of the Human Computer Project, a digital archive telling the stories all of NASA’s “Human Computers,” women from all backgrounds whose work tipped the balance in favor of the United States in WWII, the Cold War, and the Space Race. Shetterly’s father was among the early generation of black NASA engineers and scientists, and she had direct access to NASA executives and the women featured in the book. She grew up around the historically black Hampton University, where some of the women in "Hidden Figures" studied. Her research has been supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. She is currently a scholar-in-residence at the University of Virginia, with joint appointments at the McIntire School of Commerce and the School of Engineering.

The orbits of asteroids scattered by interactions with existing and vanished giant planets. The subtle distortions in the shapes of galaxies that will reveal the nature of dark energy and dark matter. As astronomers map the skies in ever increasing detail we will begin to reveal the processes by which our Universe formed and evolved. In this talk, Andrew J. Connolly will describe what we might learn from a new generation of telescopes, satellites and surveys and how observations of the distant universe relate to how we view the Earth.
