Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Adell McMillan Gallery 2nd floor

Mohammed Murshed, graduated from the University of Oregon in spring '18 with a Bachelor of Art in Art & Technology; he is currently pursuing an MFA in Visual Studies at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland. Murshed's work will be on view in the Adell McMillan Gallery Fall '18. Artist's statement: "When I begin a project, I already envision the concept of the idea in my mind, I do not force anything into my work. Some of my artwork reflects on my diagnoses of PTSD due to the war in Yemen and synesthesia. Ancient Middle Eastern Art inspires this Collection for Summer 2018. This series is devoted to Professor Jan Reaves (RIP 1945-2018); she was my Mentor through my last two years in University and has inspired me to work harder and not to give up. The impact of my cultural heritage reflects on my artwork. It subconsciously comes out to me; I consider myself a global citizen I would like my work to touch everyone globally."

CLLAS will be screening the documentary DOLORES (2017) at 4pm on Oct.22 in the Redwood Auditorium, EMU.

Director, Peter Bratt will lead a discussion after the film.

Free and open to the public.

Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century—and she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing one’s life to social change.

Earlier in the day, Oct 22, a CLLAS Teach-in on film and activism will feature director, Peter Bratt, 11-12 in Crater Lake North, EMU. Peter Bratt is an award-winning screenwriter and independent filmmaker, whose credits include FOLLOW ME HOME (1996) and (LA MISSION) 2009. Free & open to the public.
