Cushing Library Hawk Squawk: Art! Music!


First, if you missed last Friday’s fantabulous library space planning session, here’s a write-up. Big thanks to ASHNU for the outstanding student turnout!

Art Talk: Dr. Martivon Galindo, “Imaginary Landscapes”

Art Talk by Martivon Galindo

Art Talk by Martivon Galindo

Thursday, February 17, 6 – 7 p.m., Dr. Martivon Galindo, professor of Latin American and Latino/a Studies, will hold an art talk in the Cushing Library to accompany her exhibit, “Imaginary Landscapes.” Refreshments will  be served.

Dr. Galindo is a Salvadorean activist, visual artist, and writer. Her haunting, luminous watercolors, acrylics, and other art have been featured at numerous galleries in the Bay Area. Now you can experience them in the Library’s Artbrary all spring long!

RWBS (Refreshments Will Be Served). Come for all or part of the talk–whatever works best for you.

Piano in the Library

Thanks to the Music Department, the Library now has a baby grand Steinway! If you play the piano and would like to share your talents for a weekday brown-bag concert (or to accompany other events), or you have someone to recommend, drop us a line. The piano awaits tuning… and then it will be ready for its close-up!

    My friend, who is a student there, told me about your new piano. I am a pianist living in Oakland – have made my living as a musician for 30 years – and I would be delighted to come and play your piano! I do not give concerts as such – I have a lot of experience playing background music for restaurants, hotels and parties. I play mostly Gershwin, Cole Porter, music from the 30s-40s, movie themes, show tunes and a little Latin thrown in too. I also accompany singers and have played for a lot of musicals in SF. If you think you can use my abilities for anything there, do not hesitate to let me know – I would love to come and play.
