Events : HSF Gala Dinner (Sept. 20, 2008)
Posted by admin on 2008/9/22 0:00:00 (1504 reads)

On Saturday, Sept. 20, GE Aviation hosted the 7th Annual HSF Celebration.

The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) is the nation's leading organization supporting Hispanic higher education. Founded in 1975 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, HSF's vision is to strengthen the country by advancing college education among Hispanic Americans. In support of its mission to double the rate of Hispanics earning college degrees, HSF provides the Latino community more college scholarships and educational outreach support than any other organization in the country. During the 2007-2008 academic year, HSF awarded almost 4,100 scholarships exceeding $26.6 million. In its 33-year history, HSF has awarded in excess of 86,000 scholarships, worth more than $247 million, to Latinos attending nearly 2,000 colleges and universities in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Since 2001, the Greater Cincinnati chapter, together with key schools in the area have awarded more than 350 scholarships totaling over $1,000,000 to an impressive group of college-eligible students locally. This is a tremendous achievement for this community. You can currently apply for scholarship here ...

This year's Co-Chairs were Nelson Rosario (GE Aviation), James M. Wiseman (Toyota), and Dr. David C. Hodge (Miami University).

Events : Carlos Amorales Exhibit in CAC (Sept. 27 - Jan. 2009)
Posted by admin on 2008/9/17 5:50:00 (2407 reads)

In this exhibition, choreography and multimedia artwork come together in dialogue with the architecture of the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art .

Mexican artist Carlos Amorales’s solo exhibition (Sept. 27, 2008 - Jan. 2009) includes animated films, sculptural objects, performances and drawings. Amorales has created over his career a “Liquid Archive,” an accumulated and growing wealth of digital images of trees, spider webs, wolves, hybrid beings and architectural forms. This archive also serves as a vocabulary of imagery Amorales uses to create sculptures, costumes, animated films and performances. His fascination with horror as both a film genre and as a human emotion informs several recent projects. The CAC will exhibit films and drawings by Amorales as well as a site-inspired installation involving the Cincinnati Ballet in a first–ever exhibiting partnership with the CAC. Amorales is drawing from his archive various shapes of spider webs to create sculptural forms using malleable materials. Ballet dancers will be involved with the installation and engage the sculptures periodically throughout the run of the exhibition, impacting the position of artwork in the gallery.

The CAC is producing a catalog to be published in the fall, which will be Amorales’s first catalog printed in the US and the most comprehensive publication of his work to date. The catalog includes essays by Nestor Garcia Canclini, Jose Falconi, Jens Hoffmann, Joan Jonas (in conversation) and Raphaela Platow.
