New energy saving lights and sensors coming to Dimond

February 18, 2014

Work is now underway to replace lamps and add motion light sensors on Levels 2 and 4 in Dimond Library. This work has been funded by a federal grant and is designed to improve energy efficiency.

The existing motion lights on Levels 1, 4, and 5 will be adjusted so they come in within 2-5 feet of each row entrance. The new motion lights are dual sensing – they sense heat as well as motion – so, no getting up to wave your arms when sitting motionless for more than a few minutes.

Celebrate Mardi Gras early with the new University Museum exhibition

January 17, 2014

Mardi Gras isn't until March 4th this year, but the University Museum welcomes you to celebrate early with its latest exhibition, The Beat on the Street: Second Lines, Mardi Gras Indians, and the Photography of Gary Samson.

This exhibition of photographs and folk art focuses on the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans. This working class, African American tradition is distinctively part of New Orleans’s parade culture, and more broadly related to black Carnival celebrations throughout the world.

The exhibit runs from February 10 through March 28, 2014 with its formal opening on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

The opening includes the showing of the film, Bury the Hatchet, which traces the Mardi Gras Indian tradition through the eyes of three “big chiefs” or leaders of these Mardi Gras Indian gangs. The event will feature special guest Big Chief Alfred Doucette of the Flaming Arrows, who also appears in the documentary. He will answer questions about the film and this centuries old tradition in a discussion moderated by Professor Burt Feintuch of the UNH Center for the Humanities.

The film and discussion will take place from 3-5:00PM at the Memorial Union Building, Theater I. An opening reception will follow the program at the University Museum, Dimond Library, Room 101, 5:30-7:00PM.

The exhibit will feature Mardi Gras Indian suits and art work, as well as the photography of Gary Samson, chair of the Photography Department of the New Hampshire Institute of Art. The exhibit, film, and reception are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at the reception.

The exhibition is underwritten, in part, by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
