Occupy the Museum
Occupy the Museum re-imagines the museum as a collaborative teaching and learning lab, and an investigational space that allows for the exploration of new ideas. During Occupy the Museum, four groups and organizations that naturally overlap with the museum’s mission to foster critical thinking and to encourage innovation and investigation through art have been invited to physically inhabit the space for a select amount of time. Each group is then responsible for organizing a series of events in the gallery. Events should illustrate the creative work they’re doing on campus and in their organization, and allow viewers to participate in some cases. Programming will include lectures, hands-on workshops, film screenings & conversations, readings, and other kinds of experimental programming that investigate the intersections of art, activism, and inquiry within their own respective missions.
The invitees include (u)ntitled: The Wignall Art Organization,
The Chaffey Review, Chaffey College Feminists (CC Fem), and
One Book/One College.

Peace, Love & Vietnam: Two Vietnam-Era Veterans Speak
When Larry Sunderland went undercover as a Green Beret, his parents thought he was in the U. S. Army’s marching band. When he returned home from Guatemala and landed at San Francisco Airport after having his jaw broken in combat, no one would serve him a meal and people on the street spat at him. Ron Dixon fought the war from an Army fire base in Vietnam and was very successful at his job. The one event that he couldn’t get over was the accidental killing of a child. He suffered from PTSD for many years, but he is finally ready to tell his story. If you have any specific questions you would like these veterans to address, or have any other questions, contact Dr. LaMay
at julie.lamay@chaffey.edu.

Games Day at the Wig
Playing games can distract us from our hectic lives and can also simulate reality, including war. In The Things They Carried, the simple game of checkers becomes a “ritual” that is “orderly and reassuring” with a “winner and a loser” (31). Come to the Wignall Museum to play chess, board games, and roleplaying games with your classmates, friends, faculty, and staff. Learn about the history of chess, one of the first wargames, and consider the role of games in society.

hosted by Rebecca Trawick & Neil Watkins

Censorship threatens art, literature, music, films, and journalism locally, nationally, and internationally. Schools, libraries, museums, and other public venues are vulnerable to these attacks.
