‘Structure and Flow’ closing at Curfman Gallery

‘Structure and Flow,’ an exhibit by artist Sara Schneckloth, will be ending its run at the Curfman Gallery in the main level of the Lory Student Center today.

The exhibit, according to an entry on the events calendar, “draws on the visual culture of science,” where Schneckloth attempts to create “images that speak to the physical and emotional processes of remembering.”

“I think of drawing as an expanded practice, in which it is possible to articulate ideas and sensations in a range of media. Drawing for me is about experimentation, discovery and making surprising connections between ideas and materials,” she said in a news release.

The Curfman Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

Discussing the “Silver Tsunami”

Fort Collins is a great place to grow up and grow old. And, with the “Silver Tsunami,” or wave of baby boomers turning 65 each day, more and more retirement communities like Fort Collins are constantly growing and changing.

CSU students are set to lead a discussion co-hosted by the university’s Center for Public Deliberation called “Growing Older in Fort Collins – The Silver Tsunami as a Golden Opportunity,” from 4:30 to 7 p.m. today at the Fort Collins Senior Center.
The discussion, which is open to the public, will serve as an opportunity for Fort Collins retirees to voice their opinions about the state of the city in the eyes of its older residents.
