Feet to the Fire is pleased to invite the Class of 2012 to the opening of “Of All the People in All the World, USA”, performed by Stan’s Cafe from Birmingham, UK.
This has become known around campus as “the Rice Show,” because we had to order and install 11,000 lbs of uncooked, long grain rice. The show demonstrates statistics about people, history, culture and science by representing a person with a single grain of rice.
This show is special from previous installations of the show because, as part of the Feet to the Fire Initiative, the show will also feature statistics about Global Warming and Climate Change generated by the students in E&ES/BIOL 197, Introduction to Environmental Studies class, last fall.
There will be many statistics about Wesleyan, its history, as well as statistics about Middletown, CT and the US — all done with the famous wit and artistic sense that is the hallmark of Stan’s Cafe.
So, come join us for the celebration this evening for the opening of “Of All the People in All the World, USA” (The Rice Show)
Zilkha Gallery, Friday, February 20, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Food and refreshment provided.
