Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues--A Cleveland Public Library Event

Get in on the conversation on Friday, May 18, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. at Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues, a FREE and open to the public collaborative effort between the Cleveland Public Library and Cleveland Public Art. The event will be held at the Cleveland Public Theatre, 6415 Detroit Avenue, with a reception at 6:30 p.m. In its third year, Spectrum has brought influential and innovative thinkers in art and popular culture to talk about their work, ideas and theories.

This program engages the diverse Cleveland community in two public conversations per year and is supported by the Cleveland Public Library's Lockwood Thompson Fund. The Spectrum 2007 series is Pen & Ink. Words and images have played a crucial role in storytelling and visual communication. Artists and writers continue to push in new directions while challenging the perceptions of high and low art, often with irreverence and commentary. The first dialogue will feature cartoonist and author Art Spiegelman, with host and moderator Michael Kimmelman, Chief Art Critic for the New York Times.

Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy box and onto the literature shelves. He won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Maus and Maus II, the story of his parents' survival of the Nazi regime and lives later in America. His work has been published in many periodicals, including The New Yorker. In 2004 he completed In the Shadow of Now Towers.

Moderator Michael Kimmelman, educated at Yale and Harvard, is the author of several acclaimed books, most recently The Accidental Masterpiece: On the Art of Life and Vice-Versa. He has written and hosted various television shows about the arts and is also a pianist. Seating is limited. RSVP by calling 216-621-5330 or e-mail contactus@clevelandpublicart.org by May 16. For more information, call 216-623-2869.

Course Development Small Grants For Information Literacy--Winners Announced

The University Library received 13 applications for the 2007 Course Development Small Grants program designed to support faculty members in their efforts to integrate information literacy instruction into teaching and assignments. As announced, only three grants were available for 2007 (with only one available per college). Once again, however, many of the proposals were outstanding. In addition to the three winning proposals, the Interim Dean of the Graduate College also chose to fund a proposal supporting the Graduate College's program. The following three individuals will be awarded $1,000 Course Development Small Grants for Information Literacy by the Library for 2007.

- Petru S. Fodor, Physics (College of Science)
- Oksun Lee, Art Department (College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences)
- Wenbing Zhao, Electrical and Computer Engineering (College of Engineering)

The College of Graduate Studies will also fund a Course Development Small Grant for Information Literacy. The recipient of this grant is:

- Paul Lin, Department of Mechanical Engineering (College of Engineering)

Three other proposals were of such outstanding merit that the review panel encouraged the Library Director to acknowledge them with a partial award.

These individuals are:

- Ronald S. Beebe, Department of Curriculum and Foundations (College of Education and Human Services)
- Stephen Cory, History (College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences)
- Monica Gordon Pershey, Health Sciences, (College of Science)
